Postdoc advice

Redone this one from a number of years ago when Szpylbert was a postdoc himself. Szpylbert was pleased that this cartoon was quite popular and popped up in a number of places. Oh, and to clarify, admission is in fact difficult but not impossible… don’t be deterred if you think academia is for you!

Seems that many people (including science funding bodies) still don’t get that if we want to reach a global warming target of 1.5°C, huge changes are needed right now. According to the UN, global carbon emissions reductions of around 55% are needed until 2030. That’s in nine years!
