It seems that the consensus is that there are very few job opportunities
right now for people with Ph.D.s in Microbiology or a similar science.
However, if I were to get a Ph.D., it would be in a little over ten years
from now. What do you think of job opportunities then? Obviously it is not
an exact science -- nobody can predict the future. There is talk about how
scientist are getting older and retiring, but there won't be enough people
to fill the jobs that they leave as most students are getting into computer
science and related fields. Any comments?
