This is often a point of confusion, in part because there are MANY different kinds of scientists and MANY different ways we can get paid. Here I break it down for you, but keep in mind there is a ton of variability out there. If you have additional specific questions about this topic, please leave them in the comments, and I’ll address them in a follow-up video.
