It's great to hear all the stories!😊Would you recommend changing faculties/universities after the PhD ? does that increase someone's chances to get a faculty position in the future (lecturer etc)?
Alec Beeve

^^Similar to this question. Ben mentioned he wouldn’t recommend staying at the same institution. Why wouldn’t you recommend that, and what would you recommend to someone who wants to stay local after your PhD?

Thank you for sharing your stories, it is really great to hear that you dont need a big masterplan from the beginning. How important do you think international stays are?

Thank you so much for sharing the stories. I also changed areas and when I got into bone biology I felt lost and completely overwhelmed. It is good to know that other people have gone through the same and that they could overcome this and have successful careers. Have you had any difficult moments in your academic career that almost made you give up and think about changing paths?

Thank you, it's nice to hear that you have plenty of opportunities to explain your choices and your carreer path! Since, I've often been told to keep personal information out of professional applications.

Thank you all for sharing your stories! How early in your careers did you start initiating collaborations? Are there certain milestones you think need to be reached before collaborating?

How much time do you get to spend in the lab/ doing research now that you are faculty, or have your responsibilities shifted to managing research? Is this a positive for you?
Rachelle Johnson

@Laura, it is never too early to start collaborating! I started in graduate school. I found another student who had complementary expertise and we each put in 50% to the project and wrote a co-first author paper together!
