It covers some of the challenges faced by PhD students, post docs and Lecturers and identifies some useful strategies for developing a personal research brand and getting papers written quickly and effectively. It draws from recent papers written by the author and his own experience supervising graduate students and post docs and mentoring early career faculty.
