Just tried to do material research for the first time and all stations are like 3 weeks or more.. Is this normal?

Very normal, if you aren't in a rush, feel free to just queue it
If you are in a rush and have spare isk, you'll want to use a POS (Or find a corp that is willing to share access to theirs)

If I queue it will I still be able to run jobs with that blueprint in the meantime?

no. And that job will count towards your "max jobs" limit while queued.

Watching your progressive threads here has been rather hilarious, in a pitiful sort of way.

Never forget.

Only 3 weeks? Congrats on finding a quiet area of space.

Highsec Material Research and Copy slots generally have huge backups. PE and Invention slots are generally abundant.

If you don't want to wait:

Option A: Join a corp with a production POS (or put one up yourself). These cost a fair bit to maintain (100-400 isk/month in fuel).

Option B: Move your stuff to lowsec. Of course, this is risky, and you may get blown up moving stuff to and from. If you chose this route, do it in a covert ship, and/or use a scout. Plan & Scout ahead too, so you know what the area is like, what's available, who to watch out for, etc.

Funny thing: low sec isn't bad for copy slots, but even in low ME slots are queued to the gills.

You either wait or you put up a POS. If you're a week old, the answer is to wait.
