How People Choose What to Do Next ?

We all have points in our career at which we need to make a choice about what to do next.  This can happen at any stage – from deciding whether to go to graduate school or find a job in industry, through choosing a postdoctoral position, to deciding what type of position to apply for after completing our scientific training. There are many opportunities to find out all about the academic research career path during graduate school and postdoctoral training – all you have to do is keep your eyes open and talk to the people who are doing it – your mentors and the other researchers you meet along the way (in class, in the department, at meetings etc).
