Friday links: Happy Birthday to Us, Dr. Leia, the opposite of a biologist, and more

From Jeremy:

The NSF has a new report on the career plans of newly-minted science and engineering PhDs. There are more than ever–but fewer have concrete plans for after they receive their degrees. (ht Chris Blattman)

The opposite of a biologist is a model (the fashion kind, not the mathematical kind). (ht @matt_levine)

Um…

And finally: Meghan, Brian, and I celebrated Dynamic Ecology’s 5th birthday this week:

Happy birthday to us! Looking forward to another n years.

  1. No reason why Dr Organa can’t use both honorifics, i.e. Princess Dr Leia Organa. Lots of precedents for that, e.g. Dame Professor Alison Richard, Professor Sir Robert May, etc. One of the advantages of a monarchy, clearly….. 😉

  2. Looking through the top skills for models I’m not at all convinced by the contrast… “ability to maintain balance,” “performing general physical activities,” and “stamina” strike me as essential biologist skill too!
