Career advice


Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn’t. (Erica Jong)

Here is my collection of various pieces of advice on academic career issues in mathematics, roughly arranged by the stage of career at which the advice is most pertinent (though of course some of the advice pertains to multiple stages).

Disclaimer: The advice here is very generic in nature; I don’t pretend to have any sort of “silver bullet” that will solve all career issues. You will of course need to evaluate many factors, contexts, and needs specific to your own situation, as well as employing a healthy dose of common sense, before making any important career decisions. I would in particular recommenddiscussing such decisions with your advisorif you have one, as he or she will be familiar with your situation and will likely be able to provide pertinent advice.

I am also (slowly) in the process of gathering my thoughts on time management from the perspective of a research mathematician.
