>So I officially started going through available post-doc positions this week, now that I’m back from my vacation. I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do when I finish my PhD next year (assuming I do…), and of course, I came back to the academia vs. industry question.
In weighing the evidence, a friend pointed me to this article on the problems facing new scientists in academia. Somehow, it does a nice job of dissuading me from thinking about going down that route – although I’m not completely convinced industry is the way to go yet either.
