The Postdoc's Plight
By Joanne P. Cavanaugh
Over sandwiches picked up from Eddie's Market in Charles Village,
our magazine staff listened to stories of the plight of
postdoctoral fellows at the university and elsewhere. I, at
least, knew very little about their existence within academia,
let alone their contributions to research across the country and
low pay, lack of status issues. I quickly learned a lot. I'd like
to thank the postdoctoral fellows, as well as Hopkins
administrators, for being soopen and honest about the problems
within the system.
