The Real Science Gap @ Miller-McCune Online

It’s not insufficient schooling or a shortage of scientists. It’s a lack of job opportunities. Americans need the reasonable hope that spending their youth preparing to do science will provide a satisfactory career. Business leaders have cried “scientist shortage,” but scores of thousands of young Ph.D.s are laboring in U.S. university labs as low-paid, temporary workers, ostensibly training for permanent faculty positions that will never exist.

    An engineering background provides the tools to invent your own opportunities. Our hosts here are a fabulous example. Pure science, not so much.

  2. In the era of Big Box Stores, would be retailers have to find their niche market and supply it. Pretty much the same problem in other endeavors, you have to find your niche development field and fill it.
