This chapter focuses on the requirements for promotion in an academic institution when you are a researcher, either clinical or bench-focused. We will discuss the process of promotion and the ways in which you can put your best face forward. An academic research career is long and multifaceted; to that end, it is important to understand what is ultimately of value to your institution and how to match your interests to the requirements and expectations of your job.
