The study suggests it takes a few years for the hapless trainees to figure out that their PIs and institututions systematically lie and are deluded about the need to train more life science PhDs for academia.
Many are called but few are chosen.
Let us expand this thread, and rant against the system. I will start with this opinion: those conservative think-tank types calling for the import of more foreign graduate students and H1-B visa supported scientist and techies are borderline traitors to Americans. Government interference bloating the supply side of science laborers has not gone so well for the laborers. Perhaps the government should get out of the business of funding trainees and let market forces control those who chose to enter academic career paths.
