"I’m not going to talk about what you can’t control in this post, because while that will account for a number of your specific rejections, it’s not going to be the systematic cause of failure over the long-term. If you’ve been trying for a long time and you just cannot reach the next level of the search process, it’s likely to be something you can fix.

So, your goal should be to fail better. "

Dr. Mellivora on starting life as a faculty at a primarily undergraduate institution: "I was warned by multiple colleagues at teaching-focused schools that life would be different – and a lot harder – the first year of teaching after a career as a researcher.  Some things I was prepared for due to the timely advice of friends, but other things caught me off guard and some of them I still haven’t figured out.

GracieABD, on her decision to change her name upon marriage: "I had expected more comments from my feminist friends and colleagues, but never really got any.  Instead, I perceived disappointment when they found out—looks as if to say, “I thought you were one of us.”  I felt like I had to explain my choice, but I didn’t really want to bring up the subject in order to avoid defensively launching into an explanation.  That’s not me."

"In career terms, the two-body problem involves two partners, both with professional aspirations, trying to end up in close geographical proximity…so that they can live together, support each other, and maybe even raise a family. The career two-body problem is atrociously hard to solve exactly, but I’m convinced that approximations do exist."

"I love doing science and I’m good at it. But my illness takes away about 3 days every week, and I get less done than many of my peers because of it. I don’t know if my illness will improve, and I worry that  I won’t be able to compete for a job."
