Following on from our recent reader survey, which revealed that our regular and regular-ish readership contains a much higher proportion of profs than it used to: what prof-specific topics would you like us to blog about? This could be stuff on which you’d welcome advice, or just stuff on which you’d like to hear the experiences/approaches/opinions of other profs. We and others have done a few posts on prof-specific topics, like how to write tenure & promotion letters, what to do at lab meetings, or what to do after you get tenure. But I feel like there are many others that we could talk about. Especially topics that are specific to post-tenure profs. It doesn’t feel to me like there’s much online discussion of stuff like how to be a good administrator, how to remain a fresh, creative researcher after many years of working in the same study system, etc. (Or is there a ton of stuff out there and I just don’t know where to look for it?)
So the floor is open! Looking forward to your suggestions.
