Science Career Information
Well, it's that time in my career when I have to start making decisions about "what I really want to do when I grow up." Here is a sampling of the information available on the Web concerning science careers (or lack thereof) and alternate careers paths for people trained in the sciences. I hope to keep this updated and if anyone has suggestions for more links to this page, please email me or Suggest-A-Link
The YSN is not an organization in the conventional sense of the word. There are no membership requirements or fees and the services of the YSN are maintained by volunteers. The primary activity of the YSN is the production of the electronic Young Scientists' Digest which is sent out to over 3000 persons almost every day. The digest is administrated by John Quackenbush and contains the unedited contributions of digest subscribers. The Moderated YSN Digest, a weekly summary of the regular YSN Digest, is edited by Jennifer Cohen.
A job list, which contains job openings which have been submitted to the YSN, is maintained by Mary Ellen Scott. The YSN archive is maintained by Arthur Smith and contains old issues of the YSN Digest as well as copies of articles relating to young scientist employment and information on alternative careers. Letters from and articles about our group have appeared on American Public Radio, in The Chronicle of Higher Education, the New York Times, Science, and various society publications. (Further references available in the YSN archive)
Discussion topics in the YSN digest have included career and family, interviewing and job hunting tips, community college
employment, the nature of tenure, graduate curriculum reform, funding (or underfunding) of science and engineering, and just about
every aspect of life as a young scientist facing an uncertain career.
