Science stimulus funding

September 29, 2011 – 12:28 pm

There is a news piece in Nature today about the effects of the stimulus (ARRA) on science.

One of the biggest legacies of the science stimulus, however, will be that thousands of students have stayed in science longer than they might otherwise have done. “ARRA has provided postdocs and graduate students with great training that’ll help them with the rest of their careers,” says Rockey. “These people will move on to do productive and wonderful things.”

It is certainly true for me that a postdoc opportunity was provided in which I am still gaining some great training. Hopefully their last prediction is correct as well.
