Another job application bites the dust. Sometimes I really hate working in science. No matter how hard you work or how good you are at your job, there's always someone with more experience or who would be better for that position.

When someone has paper published or wins an award or gets promoted you only see the final success. You don't see the earlier rejections, revisions and setbacks. You might assume they found it easy but that is rarely so.

Two PhDs in my family - my sister and me. No parents with doctorates though one is a doctor. What about my fellow academics?

you know that bullshit about having about 1/3 of the work proposed in your grant application done already? it discriminates against ECRs and unfairly advantages well established applicants and their teams. what if we prohibited ‘preliminary data’?

twitter, have you (or anyone you know) moved from research in plant entomology to medical/veterinarian entomology (or, in EntSoc lingo, gone from PIE to MUVE)? I have questions!!

104 061 words. 363 pages. 117 semi-colons. 8 chapters. 3 years. Now? ONE DOCUMENT. That's right, folks: today at 3:15pm (AEST) my final PhD thesis became a PDF. Not sure whether to collapse in a heap, or drink all the beers. Suggestions?

Today in a nutshell: wake up at 4am for 0430 train to Gothenburg. Make tomography presentation on train. Go to meeting, give presentation. Get back on train to Uppsala, finish writing neutron proposal on train. Get home at 9pm. Sleep for a day.

tip: When we get tired and worn out we are less resilient. We are less able to deal with setbacks. Things that weren't a big deal before, now seem to be a catastrophe. Sleep, time out, time off all help you deal with the daily grind.

Students/trainees, take care of your advisors/mentors. An example is sending agenda for your meeting, one day before. Doesn’t even have to be in-depth. Bullet points will do. It gets everyone on the same page — a little reminder goes a long way.

tip: It's important to remember that: You are not your PhD. You are not the number of papers you've written. You are not your CV. You are not your h-index. There is so much more.

After hearing someone openly say that they would be in work tomorrow if it weren't for family obligations, I think we can all do more to end this toxic over-working culture in academia that is so endemic but so deleterious to mental health.

I'm n=1. What I think should change is based on personal experience, thus, biased. What do you think should change 🤔 to induce positive cultural shifts in science? Opinionated comments & replies are welcome and remember to be nice to others!
