We believe that young scientists and engineers are the future of science and engineering. We believe that their extraordinary potential can be better realized if they are informed and empowered. As young(ish) scientists/engineers ourselves we have direct experience with the system of training for future scientists and engineers. While this system is “the envy of the world” it is far from perfect, especially in how it reforms itself. Today’s graduate students and postdocs will be tomorrow’s principal investigators, professors and lab directors. They will also be tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, teachers and civic leaders.
Our goal is to help early/mid-career scientists and engineers better understand the forces that affect their careers, as well as some of the emerging opportunities that will play a bigger role in their careers in the future. We seek to engage this community directly and informally with content that is timely, topical and lively.
