Scott " over qualified in a science profession based upon age?"
In my experience, it's never been a case of anyone being overqualified for a job. What I have seen though, is people that are asking for a much greater salary than I can pay. If I can only afford someone with 10 years experience, I wouldn't avoid hiring someone with more if they were willing to work for a 10 year experience salary.
The other issues I've seen is the failure to keep up with technology. This isn't exclusive to people as old as I am, but I've seen it more in people my age than in younger folks. It's not that people can't be trained, but they have to want to be trained on newer technologies, and someone who has spent time learning and researching the new stuff will most likely have a leg up on someone who hasn't.
