Hello Forum Readers,

As many of you know, this forum discussion on Science Careers has been active for more than 20 years and has helped many young scientists get a clear understanding of the job market or their career options. Early readers of the forum (from when it was hosted by are now founders, CEO's or VP's of R&D in the life sciences, or even Professors at well known universities. Our little discussion has become an institution of its own, and I'm happy to say that even though the AAAS has chosen not to continue hosting the forum due to the costs of design integration into their website, we have another well-known host which is picking it up and reinvesting in the idea. Our community will continue to thrive and we hope the advisors and regular readers will follow us along to the new site, which will be active as of January 1, 2019.

I want to make sure that the AAAS knows how much we've appreciated their more-than-a-decade commitment to the idea of peers helping peers . . . It's become an important resource and it's great news that it's being continued elsewhere.

Thanks for all your interest in the past and here's to a wonderful holiday season for all,

Regards, Dave Jensen, Forum Founder and Moderator
