I am interested in longevity, life extension, immortality. I know there are couple of ways I can be involved in these subjects. To my knowledge there are basically two ways to achieve this ends. One is biological(biochemistry etc.) and the other is technological(computer science etc.), I have decided that technological ways are too optimistic/hard.
I was considering to major in something related to these interests. Since I have decided that technological or engineering approaches are hard, I was thinking to major in Molecular Biology. Maybe Medicine. (In my country you can go to the med school straight after high school.)
But to my knowledge a major in molecular biology will not gonna lead to good job prospects(especially in my country) and medicine is too much about diagnosing, treating patients rather than research and development and the job is very time consuming. And also, I don't really enjoy biological sciences, I would much rather prefer computer science, electronic eng, physics etc.
Since I have decided that I want to contribute, achieve, obtain etc. to life extension, what can you advise me? Is it better to not fear about the job prospects and go major in molecular biology or is it better to go medicine or do what I enjoy and try something from engineering or physics field?
