individuals electing to undergo postdoctoral training have to realize that only a small percentage will obtain the coveted tenure-track academic position. However, this is not the only career option.
"With the dramatic need for more research personnel in the Canadian labour force and the increased support that the federal government is likely to provide for research training in response to this need, there is a bright future for young researchers in Canada."
"Postdocs should be given space to discover their potential value to a wide array of audiences (and employers), encouragement to make career choices reflecting their passion and expertise, and the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in their chosen profession."
