    “In 2015, Naturejobs is celebrating mobility in science, where researchers are changing labs, moving countries or transitioning into something completely different.”
    News from us, the researchers: we are tired of moving all the time! Now the only positions available are with mobility rules, so we have to change countries every 2-3 years. This means we are prohibited a family life. Why? Don’t we deserve to have a family if we have a PhD and a respectable CV?
    STOP the mobility rules! WE, the scientists, don’t benefit in any positive way from it! We move from country to country until we are old and noone wants to hire us anymore. So we end up old, without a job and no family.
    Thank you, but NO. We deserve to have the opportunity to get stable in one place!
