Part-Time Funding Discussion

October 25, 2012

Early career planetary scientists Catherine Neish and David Choi have posted some stats of grant selection rates and started a discussion about choosing between staying in planetary science/astronomy part-time, versus taking a full-time job outside the field.

They also considered the impact of a downturn in selection rates on the percentage of full-time funding received (on average over the course of a scientists career).
