Scientists are those intelligent people who spend many years researching about hard aspects of science to help humanity, but it seems like many scientists are now happy with their job or education. Because according to a recent case study which shows that many academic scientists are getting dropped out every year. According to the researchers of Indiana University Bloomington they studied more than 100000 scientists of different fields, and it’s been concluded that many scientists are leaving academia because of many reasons.
This study shows that there needs to more establishment of government institutes focused on pure research only which will bring some excellent career opportunities for aspiring scientists.
Academic scientists have to spend lots of time to study their chosen Field also many experts think the number of scientists who have never published a paper or thesis is increasing and these are the same scientists who select the option of drop out. Another problem which many academic scientists face is the job prospect because there are very fields of science which offers a significant number of Jobs. Many scientists don’t like to work as researchers at universities because of the lucrative jobs they get in private companies in which they find their future safe.
The traditional academia works mostly on an apprenticeship model which needs to be changed. Many experts believe that the core problem is the number of scientists is increasing every year but overall there are very few jobs available for them. However, this new case study shows only the problems of scientist leaving academia, but it does not provide any solution for it. If the situation keeps getting worse, then it will have a negative impact on the aspiring scientists, and significant steps have to be taken by the government and universities to create secure future for academic scientists.
