    Bee, you surely must know how the postodc & tenure systems work before you plunged into PhD work. Are you having some regrets because you seem not to fully accept the ‘defective’ system you find yourself. My view is the tenure system is a distortion of life granted to the privileged. Sort of like a mandarin in the Soviet Union. Tenure guarantees job safety. But in real life there is no guarantee for *any* job. Tenured people can give you endless rationalization, but all are self-serving excuses. I have never seen so many educated people talking so dumb when it comes to their privileged club. Removing the tenure system will benefit education and research. Performing staff will enjoy permanent employment under renewable long term contract (5-10 years). That’s long enough to allow unhindered risky research even in academia. Fail to perform and your contract will not be renewed.The problem is not how to gain tenure. The problem is how to remove it from academia.

  4. Jesus, I wouldn't go that far — Lee's way the hell out there in his beliefs. Good guy but I don't agree with him on much of anything, certainly not his unwillingness to compromise.
