Food for thought...for hungry post-docs

A recent story featured on NPR discussed the limited career options for postdoctoral fellows as they try to move into faculty positions.  According to the article, only 15% of post-docs ultimately obtain tenure-track faculty positions.  Many complete several low-paying fellowships before giving up and moving into other sectors such as biotechnology or pharmaceuticals.  Perhaps there is also a great opportunity for these trained scientists in emerging fields such as research development.  For more information about research development, visit the National Organization of Research Development Professionals (NORDP).
