Instead of the latest research, we are treated to an invited piece by the Journal’s Senior Editor, Tijana Mitić, who is a Society for Endocrinology Leadership and Development Awardee for 2020. In this editorial, she discusses her time as an early career academic, addressing a number of the challenges she faced and providing advice and guidance for those following a similar path.

If reading her approach to challenges, such as feeling ready to lead, isn’t enough, Tijana uses this platform to point others in the direction of support and help. There is a particularly important section on role models and active participation, which is honest and frank. She concludes by suggesting early career researchers should seek suitable mentors to help push forward with their own careers. Suitable mentors may not be the best performing person in the department, but the one who has found life difficult and made a way through.

Ultimately, this article is a must-read for all academics, regardless of their current position in their careers.
