What if I want to keep doing science? Many post-PhD careers take trained scientists away from the bench, but that need not be the case. Hear about the perspectives and trajectories of three “staff scientists”—some of whom conducted postdoctoral research at MIT—and how their work overlaps and diverges from that of a PI at an academic institution.
