Our guest blogging has finally started to ramp up to where we are getting numerous viewpoints on the key issues affecting early career researchers. We hope this momentum will continue and the Black Hole can be a place for people to express their opinions and generate discussion.
This quarter featured the following posts:
Erika / Jenn:
- The baby gap – who was that postdoc anyway?
- Really scraping the bottom… can’t we at least get parental leave during a postdoc?
- Postdoctoral Parent Series: Plans gone awry…
- Forget about impact factors – the revolution is upon us!
- Publishing pressures taking away the joys of science
- Basic research still the best bet to boost S&T innovation
- The public scientist
- Defining the role of the scientific activist
- No jobs in academe? Consider becoming a scientist-entrepreneur
Dave was busy over at Signals blog this quarter with some science posts on stem cells:
- Careful with the heart strings: Promise vs. potential
- Location, location, location… Studying stem cells in their homes
- Will bone marrow stem cells help heart attack patients? Even cowboy trials have a role to play…
- Testing stem cells in the clinic – a role for publicly funded trials?
We hope that you’ve enjoyed the diversity over the past 6 months – do feel free to let us know your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll try to continue to adapt the Black Hole to the needs of the early career researcher community.
