As scientists, we seek out the edge of the unknown, and learn to surf it. An urge for new insights wakes us in the morning, and curiosity drives us. It is profoundly inspiring to be part of a community that deepens our understanding of life. But today, many scientists are also underpaid, overworked, and facing increasingly dismal job opportunities. Why do we tolerate this?

The postdoctoral research period is one rich in scientific growth and discovery.
