Scientific Careers at the Swiss Academies

I was invited to take part in a round-table on scientific careers at the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences. This followed a few months after a fascinating conference/workshop I went to in January called We Scientists Shape Science. I went there with the idea of promoting science communication skills in PhD training, but ended up more focused on the larger problems of scientific careers. 

After the conference, a few of us banded together to write out our thoughts and recommendations. You can find the piece here.  

This week at the round-table, it was wonderful to hear that the Swiss Academies are listening and are trying to build a structure that will help give young scientists in Switzerland a collective voice. I imagine it will take a while but the gears are churning.
