Do you want to do nanotechnology research? In an academic or industry setting? From an engineering angle or a biomedical point of view? Do you want to work on product manufacturing? In a small or large company? There are myriad variables when considering a career in nanotechnology, so it's next to impossible to make general statements about the training you'll need to land a job in the field. However, a recent survey by the Institute of Nanotechnology in Stirling, U.K., gives some hints about the qualities that employers are looking for in new hires.
"It's important to identify where you want to head because there are no career paths in nanotechnology," says the survey's author, Kshitij Aditeya Singh of the Institute of Nanotechnology, which originated as a European Union-funded initiative. "For an engineer, for example, ... you have a set path. That is not the case in nanotechnology. It's important to know where you want to go, [learn] what are the prospects and what skills you need to develop to grow in those roles."
