Elimination of mandatory retirement at 65 is a factor leading to bad academic job market: sciencemag.org/careers/2018/1…

Solution: semi-retirement.

"[Having waited to semi-retire until] 74, I in essence removed 9 years from someone else’s career. I should have stepped aside sooner."

I'd be interested to see a graph of average age of retirement for tenured academics on the same plot as the average age of starting a tenured job over the last decades.

I should probably find Larson's paper and see if that sort of data is there.

The paper is here: pubsonline.informs.org/doi/abs/10.128…

Unfortunately, not very big on data. So it doesn't have the figure I want, but the closest is their simulation of number of years as faculty in the lower figure.

Late last week, Dave Cohen, Pete Jeavons & I updated our paper on what we can learn about easy vs hard fitness landscapes by studying structure of gene-interaction networks (VCSP instances) that represent them: arxiv.org/abs/1907.01218

Now with many more pictures; prettier, too!

I've already made a thread about the previous version of this work that was published in CP2019:

But if there is interest then I could provide some tweets on the new results and changes in this version.

The final version of our paper looking at the kinds of structure of gene-interaction networks that guarantee easy fitness landscapes is finally out: arxiv.org/abs/1907.01218…

It should appear in JAIR soon, and I think I'll do an updated thread on some of the new results then.
