Most valuable thing I did prior to dedicated research time was reflect on what I wanted to accomplish and set clear goals. Thankful and encouraged me to do this-helped me stay motivated and focused.

And know that the funding line is not in your favor. NIH/NCI 9% get funded, so 91% do not. Perseverance is key. Learn from each "failure" and regroup. No instant solution. All about evolution and learning.

So true! Research takes time, especially basic or translation science. if the support isn't there and you really want to do this, go to a different place.

Yes - coursework is key to developing sound methods. It’s not about learning to use SAS or STATA - it’s about learning and planning the correct analysis to answer your research question.

100% agree. And whatever you do promise try to have it tick multiple boxes on your priority list!

Also, not sure if this has been said, but PLEASE under-promise and over-perform. Don't set yourself up for failure. It is good to be enthusiastic but you should manage your own expectations (note to self via lol).

This is really true - reach out to others and ask what is reasonable, then ask them if your package is reasonable. the first package is meant to be negotiated (little dirty secret)

1. Know you can negotiate. 2. Prioritize what is important. 3. Soft money easier (i.e. negotiate your time, startup, etc) in parallel with your salary.

A5. Read a lot. If you cab, take a statistics course. Epidemiology is also important! Keep writing. Ask help from people with more experience. English isn’t my first language and I always need someone to review my manuscripts, and that’s an opportunity to learn/improve

A6: The 'right job' for me had the right clinical mix and research interest, but I did not negotiate details of research support until after I was here. Total leap of faith on my part. I stayed focused and pitched my 5-year plan.

For all of you feeling some imposter syndrome reading through this . You are completely capable of doing science if you want it. We all had some deviations/road blocks/rejections/naysayers along the way. Stay focused, find your peeps (hint: ), do what you ❤️
