Subject: To junior & senior scientists

I feel I've got to write down this:

- At FE-request, I keep getting messages from  junior  scientists
where  they tell me 'they've got to quit'.  The main reasons are:

    - Cannot stand 'uncertainty' any longer
        [uncertainty  with  regard  to  funds,  jobs  and  future

    - No steady jobs;
    - No temporary jobs;

Science as a whole is loosing very valuable junior scientists,  I
am  afraid.   Some  of the senior scientists do not seem to care:
They do not have the  time  to  do  their part of the 'fight' and
those who'd have taken over some day just got to quit.

This is truly amazing in the European Community where billions of
USDollars have been and will be  invested  in  (marine)  research
during  the  coming  years: The increments in funding seem not to
have expanded the scientific core:  A few individuals participate
in 20-40  research  projects/capita  while  juniors  are denied a
place and a just-for-survival-scolarship.
