just out of curiosity, who of the people here that did a PhD started doing a post doc in another field?
(and also: whom of you started working in industria right after the PhD?).
The reason I ask is very simple: I am offered a PhD in a field in which it will be hard to get a post doc and I wonder if it would be possible to get a post doc in a not so related field. I can imagine that most professors would prefer post docs with experience in that particular field...
