Becoming a scientist

I'm not sure if you can read this without a subscription to Nature Jobs, but if you can read it, please do so.

This is an essay written by a post-doctoral fellow in neuroscience named Thomas Schofield. He was tragically killed in a bus accident in 2010.

This brief essay on becoming a scientist is very insightful and may help others to shed some misconceptions about a career in science.
