Drawing on several years of research, this set of essays is designed to help graduate students and early career faculty start their careers in geography and related social and environmental sciences.

Aspiring Academics stresses the interdependence of teaching, research, and service–and the importance of achieving a healthy balance in professional and personal life–in faculty work, and does not view it as a collection of unrelated tasks. Each chapter provides accessible, forward-looking advice on topics that often cause the most stress in the first years of a college or university appointment.

For all readers interested in geography and environmental sciences.
