This video is based on my experiences & conversations with professors, researchers, and professionals in the academic world, along with my own personal research. So take this with a grain of salt! Because this is merely my perspective on what I have gathered about the challenges associated with an academic career in marine biology. I definitely encourage you to learn from other perspectives than mine.

With that being said, in this video I go over challenges in academia, phd challenges, academic career planning, and the things you should consider before pursuing academia and a PhD (based on my experience).

Lawrence Deligero says:

In the Philippines, I think it's a bit different. While there aren't necessarily "more" positions, there are only so few PhDs. In fact, state universities have programs to encourage their faculty to pursue further studies.
