Diary of an Early Career Researcher #1

Early. Career. Researcher.

Each of these terms are wrong.

I started researching in 2007, but I received my first full time position (relatively quickly) in 2014. People who want this job are not here for just a career – It’s more encompassing and that is why we endure negative conditions. Research is not the only thing we do. We should question if it is the defining part of the whole.
