Welcome to Alternative Science Careers !

I hope this website will help the many graduate students and post docs who are unsure of what to do next. If you think that a career in academia is not for you, but you don’t know where to go or how to get there, then this website should help.

If any of the questions below sound familiar, then you are in the right place.

Are you a grad student or post doc and not sure what you want to do next ?

Looking to get out of academia, but don’t know how?

Have you had enough the lab?

Who can you turn to ?

What do you need to do ?

Not sure what you will do after you graduate ?

Is this your second or third post doctoral fellowship?

Looking for more security in your life ?

Tired of writing grants ?

Why did nobody tell you what was at the end of grad school?

10+ years of education and are you still earning < $40 000 / yr?
