The future of jobs in chemistry
Next week, be prepared to witness the chemistry blog event of the century!
Well, maybe not the century, but it should be pretty good. Starting Monday, Chemjobber, ChemBark, ScienceGeist and I are going to hold a blog roundtable about the future of jobs in chemistry.
On Monday, Chemjobber will discuss Beryl Lieff Benderly's "The Real Science Gap" and add his own opinions on the future of the job market in industry.
.Tuesday, I'll will be jawing on the numbers from the NSF's recent doctoral report to try to answer the question "Are there too many PhDs being awarded in chemistry?"
Wednesday, Paul at ChemBark will talk about tenure and why it's not a good system.
Thursday, Matt at ScienceGeist will delve into government's role in science employment.
And then on Friday, back to Chemjobber who will summarize the week's discussions and comments.
Read! Comment! Be astounded! Tell us we're stupid! Whatever, just participate. The best discussions have people talking, after all.
See you next week.
