How To Make It To Professor

This is a fantastic video on how to make it to professor, all in 10 minutes, from the University of Nottingham/Test Tube film maker Brady Haran. Thanks to @periodicvideos for tweeting this (and to @timeshighered for re-tweeting it).

Some of the early parts of the video only really apply to scientists (most humanities routes are a little different, at least at the stage from PhD to your first lecturer post) but the bit at the end about getting promotion is pretty common to all disciplines.

Expect a link to this from the Academic Careers website.
