3. It doesn't have to be that way. I don't have to be a single PI, solely responsible for myself. I can find collaborators and set up something permanent. Being the sole professor interested in a single area in a university can give you some crazy ideas, but a good partner can help you balance them out. This is something my advisor has done, and it works well for her. Similarly, I can do something other than research. I can go work for the FDA, or a tech company, or even just teach.
