First Paragraph

Every career has a trajectory—one’s professional arc has a beginning, middle, and end. We academics are in the envious position of being able to shape the contours of the arc to suit our personalities and circumstances, but eventually the inevitable must be faced: we are going to leave the classroom and lab, and somebody is going to replace us.
