If nanotech is so ‘hot,’ where are all the jobs?
Last December, when President Bush signed the 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act into law, he authorized $3.7 billion in funding to nanotechnology research and development over the next four years. So where there’s money, the jobs usually follow, right? Well, it’s too soon to tell. Nanotech is still in the R&D stages, and hiring is being done at a conservative pace, mainly through personal networks of the founders and management teams.
