Earn Your B.S. from B.S. in B.S.January 2nd, 2013
In what I can only hope is a sign that the job market for scientists is improving, it appears that serial data fabricator Bengu Sezen has been hired by the Gebze Institute of Technology (in her native Turkey) as an assistant professor of bioengineering.
How on Earth can something like this happen? What, exactly, must one do to become disqualified from being hired for an academic job? You could easily get a position if your CV were limited to just the papers Sezen’s had retracted.
I’m all for second chances, but come on. I suppose Turkish universities have reputations on par with Turkish prisons?
