My career plan has changes more than a few times in the last few years. The primary goal is still the same: a tenure track job research university. Mind you I long ago realized I had to diversify my expectations and prepare plans B-Z. I have been working on those, including fostering some contacts in industry. Still an academic job is my first choice.
I was going to hit the job market this year but instead decided to punt at least until next year. I’m polishing the CV and applying for funding.
In the meantime I’m going to jot some notes on academia, science outreach and diversity in science.
