More postdocs than ever

and still not paid very well. The annual nationwide Survey of Earned Doctorates from a group of US government agencies shows that an increasing majority of Ph.D. recipients in the sciences go on to postdoctoral positions, as do the majority of Brandeis Ph.D. recipients in the life sciences, the only disciplines for which I  have statistics handy. The average salaries for postdocs are, as you might expect, less than luxurious when compared to other career paths taken by Ph.D. recipients.
