Science reviews recent paper by Becca Price

Science magazine cover

Science reviewed a recent paper by IAS faculty member Becca Price, in which she and her colleagues analyze the way biomedical scholars with Ph.D.s, but in temporary positions, interpret their identities as scientists. They found that some of the scientists want their primary focus to be on conducting experiments, that others want to focus on big picture questions that frame entire research programs, and that others incorporate both goals.
