Scientists operate in an extremely competitive environment. A few will finalise their career as a professor only. What about all the other scientists starting a Ph.D., or a post-doc? Should a master student anyway start an academic career? Or should a senior-researcher continue a scientific career? DRS guides scientists in answering such questions.
GUIDANCE IN THE SCIENTIFIC CAREER
explore your opportunities in science and innovation
more than just music
A musician knows very well how to play a violin, or another instrument. She or he, needs, however, support to deal with all the stress around the music. Signing agreements, planning concerts, dealing with PR, and especially reserving enough time to train quietly. A manager needs actually to guide and protect a musician.
Similarly, a research manager needs to guide and protect scientists irrespectively she, or he intends to climb on the scientific ladder or to continue the career in jobs related to science and innovation. We need empathy between a research manager and a scientist.
more than scientific ideas
The CEO of DRS offers an in-depth interview for free to explore your opportunities in science and innovation. Such an interview lasts about 2-3 hours. It starts with an inventory of your motivation for science and your scientific skills. We, subsequently, estimate your chances to arrive at the (sub-)top of science. If so, we discuss the actions you may undertake to arrive at the top indeed. If not, we discuss alternative opportunities.
A top scientist is able to pair a maximum of creativity with a maximum of accuracy in working out the scientific ideas.
We feel a scientist needs to belong to the top, or sub-top at least, to complete an academic career.
The large group of good scientists just below the sub-top has plenty of job opportunities in applied science and innovation if they develop additional skills besides the scientific ones.
The CEO of DRS guided several junior- and senior scientists already in their career, inside, or outside the academia.
