    One of the main problems in my opinion is the fact that there is no responsibility of senior tenure members to help develop the careers of their students or post-docs. So many post-docs work their hearts out in labs and sacrifice their time to develop other careers paths and only improve the careers of their supervisors. There seems to be complete indifference from the top down to help those post-docs or phd students to actually find meaningful employment. If you don’t change that attitude, the post-doc crisis will continue.
