Naturejobs podcast: Sacrifices for science

Naturejobs podcast: Sacrifices for science

A wide range of initiatives exist to help early career researchers achieve their goals, but there are practical challenges and difficult decisions to make along the way.

In this second Naturejobs podcast, Sacrifices for Science, David Payne, chief careers editor at Nature speaks to Burcu Anil Kirmizitas, who describes the struggle to find affordable housing for her and her family in three of the world’s most expensive cities.

I also speak to Ibukun Akinrinade, a neuroscience PhD student at the Gulbenkian Institute of Science in Oerias, Portugal. Ibukun needed to access training that was not available in her home country of Nigeria and had to leave her husband and young son behind.
