Fantastic example of academia at its nastiest.
There was a mention of this over at FSP, so I looked up a link.
I did not know the text of the emails from Susumu Tonegawa to Alla Karpova was available on the web.
These are a great example of how, to an outsider, it might not be obvious just what is going on in academia on a regular basis.
Anyone who thinks women are on an equal playing field, I'm sorry but you need to think again.
It's important to keep in mind that, like cockroaches, by the time you see one, there are hundreds or thousands more where that came from.
I guess I think it's kind of funny that this Nobel Laureate was so threatened by a junior female potential hire as to tell her not to join MIT. What a spineless loser.
And oh, the emails I would post online if I could do it anonymously.
