OFFERS OF EMPLOYMENT IN BIOLOGY AND MEDICINE The European Commission (EC) recently launched a network of mobility centers that give free advice to scientists in all matters relating to their professional and daily lives, including practical information on housing, schooling, and language courses.

A 12-step program for grant-writers anonymous :

50% or fewer of biological and health sciences doctoral recipients are employed in academia, and an even smaller percentage of those are tenured or on tenure track (2001 survey of doctorate recipients,"National Science Foundation/Division of Science Resources Statistics). These numbers reflect the significant shift in the employment patterns of biomedical researchers, away from the traditional research faculty appointments. Since the early 1980s, we have seen a substantial decline in the percentage of biomedical PhDs found in faculty positions five to six years after employment, as well as an increased growth in less stable, "soft-money" positionsref, which lack the guarantees of tenure track, leaving scientists to fight for lab space and raise their own salaries via grants. Recent reports, such as "Bridges to Independence" released by the National Research Council, have highlighted lengthening periods of postdoctoral apprenticeship and barriers to becoming an independent academic investigator, suggesting there are not enough faculty positions for the pool of employable scientists.
