Review of The Costs and Benefits of a Modified Biomedical Science Workforce

Jessica Polka
In this preprint, Michael D. Schaller shares a cost-benefit analysis of shifting the balance of the research workforce to include more staff scientists. Proponents of this intervention (myself included) argue this would simultaneously address concerns about overproduction of trainees and also promote more durable institutional knowledge. However, the costs of employing staff scientists seem to present a serious barrier to implementation. As a consequence, an economic analysis of the type presented here is sorely needed....
