Have you decided that a tenure tract position at an academic medical center is for you? How does one begin the quest for assistant professordom, especially with a clinical background? What do you need besides an interview-suit?
Yours truly addresses these issues over at BioCareers. This article is the first in a series on academic medical-science job issues they have asked me to write.
The site includes a number of blog posts from those of us in, well, careers in the biological sciences. They also have job boards, and several Major Research Universities have integrated BioCareers into their own websites. It looks like a great resource for students exploring career paths, and I am delighted to be a contributor.
By the way, no one is paying me to write or promote the site. I am participating because:
- The site looks useful
- I love to write
- I enjoy the ego-boost of being a contributor.
