Compensation?

I’ve had one of the worst papers in peer review today, but who cares — new PhD researchers and a great intern have started today, and their motivation and curiosity more than compensates for the frustration! One’s forgotten in 10 minutes, the others are the beginning of new journeys!

Inspiration for a career in academia

Scientia Futura provides inspiration for a career in academia, especially for women in the social sciences and humanities. Excellent initiative and very interesting and insightful interviews with outstanding scholars in the field. As it’s focused on inspiration, we don’t need that bit about survivorship bias.
