Careers in Neuroscience and Neurotech
"The subject areas that qualify as neuroscience are as far-reaching and as interconnected as neurons themselves. Consequently, neuroscientists often work on questions that span several distinct subfields. Many neuroscience programs are interdepartmental and take on the structure of an institute rather than a department." Emma Hitt writes a good overview of careers in neuroscience for Science magazine this week in Careers in Neuroscience: From Protons to Poetry. My three cents was that a strong demand exists for people with regulatory and clinical trial management expertise related to neurological diseases and psychiatric illnesses. For jobs in the neurotech industry check out NIO's job board.
"Whatever path a student decides upon, neuroscience is replete with opportunities for graduate students and postdocs who have given thought to planning their career path. People who are just entering into this field will be the Nobel Prize winners of this next generation, says Insel. "This really is the place for the brightest and the best students to jump in because we know so little, and the opportunities are so great."
