题 目: Research as a Career
摘 要:In this talk, I will speak from my knowledge and experience about why and how to develop a career in research. Many young people are curious about the benefits and risks in choosing research as a career and also probably wonder what to expect from such a career. Or for people who have already chosen research as a career, how they could make the best out of it. Also what are the things that they need to pay most attention as they are developing their professional career in research.
