Mom the Chemistry Professor : Personal Accounts and Advice from Chemistry Professors who are Mothers Paperback / softback

Edited by Kimberly Woznack, Renee S. Cole, Cecilia H. Marzabadi, Gail Webster

Description

When is the "right" time? How can I meet the demands of a professorship whilst caring for a young family?

Choosing to become a mother has a profound effect on the career path of women holding academic positions, especially in the physical sciences.

Yet many women successfully manage to do both. In this book 15 inspirational personal accounts describe the challenges and rewards of combining motherhood with an academic career in chemistry.

The authors are all women at different stages of their career and from a range of colleges, in tenure and non-tenure track positions.

Aimed at undergraduate and graduate students of chemistry, these contributions serve as examples for women considering a career in academia but worry about how this can be balanced with other important aspects of life.

The authors describe how they overcame particular challenges, but also highlight aspects of the systems which could be improved to accommodate women academics and particularly encourage more women to take on academic positions in the sciences.
