One of our own, Dear Science Blogosphere, has inked her signature upon the line to accept a tenure track Assistant Professor slot. Please head over to the “Fumbling Toward Tenure Track” blog to offer your congratulations and best wishes to the blogger known as Dr Becca.
I have a slightly greater than passing familiarity with Dr Becca’s plan of research for her initial months and years as head of a brand new lab. I can assure you, Dear Reader, that there is a great deal of interesting and useful new science that we can expect to result from this new program over the next years and decades.
Best wishes, DrBecca, and congratulations on reaching this stage of transition to independence. This, in and of itself, is a testament to all of your hard work and creativity leading up to this point. You deserve this opportunity and I have little doubt will make the most of it. Remember this when the going gets tough!
