Burnout results in exhaustion, reduced productivity, cynicism, and even withdrawal from careers in STEM. This issue needs to be recognized and addressed in order for all scientists to be healthy, productive, and successful. Luckily, there are concrete steps that can be taken to reduce burnout among scientists, particularly in students and post-docs.
