Tips on Becoming a Scientist

by Hans on 2010/07/01

Here’s an interesting little article from Scientific American reporting from the 60th annual Nobel Laureaute Lectures at Lindau titled “So you want to become a scientist“.

Apparently, a panel of successful scientists provided some insight in terms of carving out a successful career as a scientist. You should read the explanations in the article, but here are the main points:

  • Play hard
  • Learn to translate what you do for others
  • Make time for your family
  • Collaboration goes both ways
  • Know when to stop

They all seem like good tips to me and are probably applicable to any career.

Interesting. They never taught me this in medical school. Check out my blog in case you are a scientist or physician that has a fishing problem. http://www.jasonchertoff.com. Thanks Jason
