BU Today reports on postdoc challenges
The BEST website launched at the end of July 2015, but the BEST programs have been developing since 2013. Over the last couple of years BEST institutions and participants have been featured in the news. Here is a story from April about Boston University School of Medicine’s BEST program.
BU Today ran a four-part special report on the current challenges associated with university research. The last part of the series, “Too Many Postdocs, Too Little Funding”, focuses on postdoctoral research fellows and how limited funding and too few faculty positions impact their careers. The article describes how Boston University School of Medicine’s BEST program addresses these realities and helps PhD students and postdocs prepare for science career both in and outside of academia.
