S2E19: Pulling Back The Curtain On Tenure


In today’s episode, Patrick and Greg talk about the tenure process: what it is, why it exists, how they see it, and some thoughts that might be helpful on the journey, fully realizing that institutions and fields are different, so your mileage may vary. Along the way, they also mention Fermat’s Theorem, Ten Year, The Wizard, Flying Monkeys, the child catcher, water on rocks, fat old bald men, intellectual punches in the face, Charlie Brown Fails Tenure, 70% of zero, Cosmic Cantina, research quality as a latent variable, MultiInterTransDisciplinairy research, throwing grants on the fire, Marlo Thomas (she’s baaaack), and caveat emptor.
