The third and final part in BioBM Principal Consultant Carlton Hoyt’s editorial on graduate students and post-docs moving outside science titled “A Flood of Life Scientists: The Practical Guide to Escaping the Crowd by Escaping the Bench” has been posted on PostDocsForum today. The editorial, which is broken up into multiple parts, frames the issue of the relative lack of quality life science jobs compared to the number of trainees then goes on to explain ways to build and execute a strategy for moving away from bench science. This final part focuses on gaining the relevant skills that scientists will need to transition into their new career path while still in their current roles. You can read the post in its entirety on PostDocsForum.
