    You should have mentioned how abysmal the academic 'market' is. I know countless of excellent researchers being stuck in the 'permadoc' situation of doing repetitive postdocs and having no success of getting professorships. Academia is a pyramid scheme.

    Going to accademia and doing PhD looks like a Valueable and very humanistic view of giving the energy to humankind progress.

    The reality is a different story . as a newbie in this jungle you don't see the structure, how Professors will use for their Personal gain and "pride projects" .. burned out professors (at least 40%) ..who let everything be done by doctoral students and feel like kings in their chairs! without being responsible for anyone. And certainly not anyone to answer for in the case of failure! And anyway do not bother about teaching … poor students ..
    The professors having a circle of other professors where they have a mafia structure and funding each other …most of them have no vision!!!!!
    they r just reproducing science has bee done before. Most of them in 70thies.
    Please don't go to academia professors will see you like a raw meat and manipulate you and see you as a slave doing his own research work and trying to keep you blind..

    I'm a high school student, and I really want to pursue research in genetic engineering. Too bad, my country isn't that motivated on r&d. But I will do it. I'll be back 10-15 years from now. I hope I will be able to create difference then.
