Reimagining Science and the Ivory Tower
Salinero, Kennan Kellaris
Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, v50 n1 p38-46 2018
Science is in an era of a hypercompetitive job market, with five PhDs for every faculty position and 60 percent of recent PhD graduates leaving science altogether. Current challenges call for a fundamental shift to new ways of thinking and working in science. The tech sector provides examples, not necessarily readily seen, that the scientific sector can use as exemplars for shifting from rugged, individualistic, competitive practices to the models of highly collaborative, transparent, vision-driven teams. Solutions to these challenges need to tap the ubiquity of idealism--particularly in the next generation of scientific workers.
