Lives in Science: How Institutions Affect Academic Careersby Joseph C. HermanowiczUniversity of Chicago Press: 2009. 344 pp. $45

Hermanowicz finds that a faculty member’s level of career satisfaction at retirement depends on the prestige of their institution and the scientific reputation they are able to achieve. Those at less-prestigious universities, who were also more likely to have graduated from similar institutions, were generally satisfied because of the balance they ultimately achieved in their lives. Like other academics, they had once hoped to achieve scientific greatness, but quickly realized that such recognition would elude them. They dealt with disappointment about their career paths early on.


By contrast, physicists who got the early prize of an elite university job were satisfied with their careers — until the end. Then they were hit with the realization that the scientific recognition for which they had striven so long would now go to younger scientists. For the first time, this elite group’s “expectations for their careers exceed reality” and their satisfaction was low.
