                                                                     To Young Scientists

In these days of increased competition and uncertain career prospects in    1    , it is easy for young scientists to forget why they do science in the first place. But too much career anxiety can backfire, put young scientists    2    losing the fun of science, and harm their chances of success. Some fields are more competitive than others, but the abilities to    3   in science can be learned. The most important things are to cultivate your scientific curiosity, take pride in doing things well, and nurture great but realistic ambitions.

When deciding where to do your Ph.D. or post-doc, do not base your decision solely on whether the laboratory has a grant for you or routinely publishes in     4    journals. You should choose a place where you feel   5   and some fascinating things are being done. Also important is to choose a good supervisor, one who won’t treat you like cheap labor at the service of a great project. Choosing a good project is equally important.

Use the early years of your career to learn as many techniques as you can; they will help you    6    an array of problems in the future. Also make sure that you learn the basic concepts in relevant disciplines, but always with a    7    mind. Expose yourself to other ways of learning, thinking, and doing by exchanging ideas with peers and colleagues, gaining experience abroad, and creating a network of smart friends. It is also important to go to as many seminars as you can.

Those breaks give you opportunities for informal exchanges with other researchers that can prove very    9   .

Above all, perhaps, to be successful in academia you need to develop your persistence and     10    your creativity. Creativity is to find solutions to problems for which there are no recipes. So be willing to take risks, and regard each errant step you may take as a step closer to the truth.
