We Call It "Tenure"
As far as I can tell, "tenure" is the academic version of sainthood. They have miracles; we have publications. Same difference. (OK, so they have to deal with a pretty tough journal!)
My name is Mason Porter. I am a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at UCLA. Previously I was Professor of Nonlinear and Complex Systems in the Mathematical Institute at University of Oxford. I was also a Tutorial Fellow of Somerville College.
