Why bother

With the hard work of STEM subjects and then (if you're lucky) a series of small term contracts at pitiful pay.

Do a subject like accountancy or law and let the money roll in with (relatively) far higher job security

Maybe get a few scientists to do the public inquiries so often called by the govt (instead of a judge e.g. Grenfell) - after all science (in non theoretical areas) is all about analysing data and producing evidence based conclusions (obviously this would defeat the point of public inquiries, i.e. to give the result the govt wants, rather than the inquiry actually having any intellectual rigour & coming to an unwanted conclusion)
