Happy holiday, netters:
Inorganic chemistry is a fascinating area, but those promising
inorganic chemists --- (future Ph.Ds with major of Inorg. Chem.)
are facing even more problems in this BAD job market, comparing to their
organic or analytical fellows.
I got this impression from C&E NEWS, various newspapers and the FACTs that
are happening in many(?) universities:people(students) are moving out of
inorganic chemistry area to Organic,Biochemistry,Analytical etc...OR they
just don't consider INORGANIC when they first choose their research group.
While organic MS and Ph.Ds have MULTIPLE choices during job searching,
INORGANIC people are not so lucky --- they have little hope!
In one word,job chances are the incentives. This really make inorganic
students feel frustrated and it HURTS science.
I want to hear your opinion.
Please direct e-mail to me.I will summarize on the net.
