It has been about six months since I made the transition from postdoc to Assistant Professor (more on my experience on the academic job market here). I figured that it would be a good idea to write a timely blog post about this transition. I should note that I did make this move during a global pandemic, so some of my experiences are probably not “typical” of a first-year Assistant Professor on the tenure track. For example, I will have spent my entire first year teaching graduate courses completely online rather than in-person. Nevertheless, there are perhaps still many things about this transition that are universal and broadly applicable, which I detail below.
