    I’m not surprised that long postdocs are more common in the biological and life sciences than in the physical sciences. A couple friends had biochem postdocs which lasted >6 years. They indicated that wasn’t unusual in their respective labs. It wasn’t that they had been planning on lengthy appointments but the job market wasn’t amenable to them moving on after a couple years. (For comparison, my p.chem postdoc was two years and that was typical for my field – that was 20+ years ago, but still.)
