What's the reason to do PhD and stay in academia in STEM when the industry nowadays does the same amount (if not more) of research with 10x the pay and comfort of life?

yeah it's pretty comfy i'd say

Fresh barely legal pussy each year.

>> No.15302423

what does fresh one give you if you aren't getting any at all anyways

>> No.15302427

Maybe because you are interested in pursing excellence in some field beyond what you can acquire with an undergraduate degree? Maybe you would like the opportunity to work in an intellectually stimulating career that you could never, ever, ever get into without a PhD?

There is only one reason for me.
This. >>15302427

>> No.15302882

The obvious primary motivation is to bang young college girls. All other answers are bunk.

>> No.15302893

This and worthless prestige

>They see me larping, they hating

>> No.15303282

This makes me angry. There are no girls to bang.

>> No.15303286

Definitely not in STEM.

>> No.15303406

Fear. Doing a phd is 95% of the time an irrational decision, its a bloated market.

>> No.15303413

get a phd in physics or math and youre set for life. every employer will look atyou differently and with awe

>> No.15304682

I hope this is a joke. Most people with a phd in these fields struggle to find work.

>> No.15304709

Hardly "most". If you're not an exceptionally dogshit candidate you can find all kinds of work with a phd. There's some absolute spergs who wouldn't have found work anyway of course.

>> No.15304743

I don't really see how any employer would prefer PhD in math over someone that has 4 year of experience more in whatever field he is in

>> No.15304931

Obsession / extreme "passion".

>> No.15304996

false everyobe i know who got a phd in those fields work in
>defense research
>finance (math models)
>industry research (high technology/scientific start ups)

bullshit sub 120s seeth over >135 iq phd math and physics graduates (applied physics etc.) as long as there is physics and math

I've spoken with many Academia bros about this and I think it ultimately comes down to the "comfort" of staying in school. That is, it's a kind of arrested development, where you get to have a captive audience of students who will have to defer to you for your "amazing" knowledge of some extremely niche subject no one actually cares about. Universities of full of actual "grown" men who still think they are "shaping young minds for the future" and similarly gay stuff, rather than shuffling borderline retards through High School 2.0 since it's required for a job now.

>> No.15306114

Physics and math nerds get fucking destroyed by Chemchads in this department.

>> No.15306118

>What's the reason to do PhD and stay in academia in STEM
Because you want to spend more time learning something that you had as an undergraduate, would be the main reason, IMO.

>> No.15306132

>every employer will look atyou differently and with awe

And then say we decided to go with a different candidate because you intimidate the high school educated boomer manager.

>> No.15306135

You will live in the pod and you will eat the bugs.

>industry nowadays does the same amount (if not more) of research with 10x the pay and comfort of life?
but do they do research in algebraic sneed theory, which I hold so very dear?
