Planning for a positive postdoc - "If you want to give your postdoctoral position the best chance of being a success, you need a plan. That is one of the strong messages to come from a recent survey of US postdocs, conducted by Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society, in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina."

Pause for postdocs - "Curiosity. Is that what induces highly educated people in their early thirties, many of whom have a family, to work for just over half the salary of other workers with a doctoral degree, less than a dollar an hour more than the Harvard janitor? According to a recent survey, roughly one-third of postdoctoral researchers say they are motivated by the prospect of becoming independent researchers in their own right. Rather than money, it seems that postdocs could be rendered more productive and better satisfied by a simple formal exchange to establish exactly what it is they have been recruited to do."
