Academic Career Profiles

The life of a professor (or instructor) can vary greatly, because of the great variety of academic institutions. One way to assess whether a particular career track might be right for you is to read about the lives of people who have chosen that track – what they do day to day, what the challenges and rewards of their jobs are, and so on. While none of the profiles below is meant to be "representative" of a particular academic setting, collectively they help to illustrate this variety. You can search the collection by highest degree granted (by their department), by typing text into the search box, or just by browsing.
