Words to the Wise for New Scientists
Peter Griffiths shares his wisdom for aspiring and early-career scientists
Lauren Robertson | | Quick Read
“Look to see what’s hot and where it’s going. Don’t get stuck doing the same old stuff over and over again, but have fun doing what you’re doing. The other thing I would say is to go to as many conferences as you can (this is perhaps even more possible now that so many are online) and join scientific societies. Societies allow you to meet people in your field and gain a grasp of the big things that are happening before they appear in print. Most importantly, have the courage to go and talk to the big names in your field! You’d be surprised how many people really love talking with young, enthusiastic scientists who are just getting into the field, so why not give it a try?”
