Catching the right train<br />Plan your career steps in advance<br />Look for the best research groups and join them<br />The best research groups are not only those that publish in Nature and Science, but those who will care about your career<br />When doing research, try to be creative, take some risks, fight for your independence<br />Do not follow your heart, but your brain<br />
    14. 14. Money isthekey<br />Getting funded<br />
    15. 15. First step<br />Top research groups have money<br />Ask directly if they can fund you to work with them<br />If this does not work, you will need to identify the funding that fits your needs best<br />Good news is that there is plenty of money out there. Look for regional, national, international funding<br />
