Life after post-doc
Posted 15 May 2009 - 10:16 AM
For some reasons, I just donít have exciting result to have good publications, and the highest impact factor journal that I have paper is 3.
After another one and half year, if there is no significant improvement, it would be nothera dead end.
What do people do after that?
I probably too old to change career (I worked couple years before went to Ph.D.), so what is my option?
Beside become a faculty or a senior researcher, what people do after post-doc.

Industry, in general, also pays far better. If you're not sold on the idea of complete intellectual freedom, then I'd suggest making the sacrifice. You would almost definitely work less in industry than you would as a junior faculty, and likely no more than you do as a post-doc (or, depending on who your advisor is, perhaps less).
Whatever you choose to do, best of luck to you!
