Canadian post-doc conundrum lands in Nature
The difficult situation for Canadian post-docs has landed on the pages of the most recent issue of Nature. While post-docs are underpaid, I think Nature may have underestimated it a bit when they suggest that the average post-doc salary in Canada is $30,ooo (Cdn) – the CAPS survey suggests it is significantly higher.
Nonetheless, it’s hard to imagine this article serving as a positive recruiting tool for Canadian researchers looking for international post-doc talent. Nature’s conclusion: “Postdocs in Canada are underpaid and face uncertain career prospects…“.
That about sums it up, I think.
