Soon-to-be Assistant Professor Alice
I’m moving to start a tenure track position this fall! I feel mostly relieved that I won’t need to reinvent myself and become someone outside of academia. I also feel very excited about the possibilities of the position, launching my career past the postdoc. I’m surrounded by boxes, wondering how so many objects in the world could possibly belong to a single human being. Cannot wait until this is all unpacked and I get settled in. So excited about this new job, yet I also have some impostor feelings coming up too. What do you wish you knew/did differently before you started your first position?
