I feel like I might have chosen the wrong job. I love research, coming up with solutions, and creating things, and my field is in technology. However, after getting my phd I was burned out and a bit lost. and even though I have so many ideas that can be implemented and would sell in a minute, I just didn't know where to start (on my own) and if this is the right time to do it. Since I felt that I'm not ready to start on implementing my own ideas, I applied for an assistant prof job and I got it.
It turns out that the university I'm in is not that great. The management is terrible, and research isn't a priority. I wasn't given an introduction and there was no onboarding process. I was given multiple tasks (a lot of them outside of my job description) to do the moment I stepped in and was assigned courses to teach without giving me a choice (and it's outside of my expertise but I can teach it since it is BSc level). On top of that, I was asked to attend compulsory courses that adds up to 13 hours a week for 3 months. (I guess that's my introduction).
I'm still in my first month in this job, but I'm not happy with it. I'm usually a very energetic and positive person, but now I feel physically and emotionally exhausted and tired. The lack of energy is not just because of the tasks I have to do, but also because of the toxic environment. I can't even do research, because I'm too busy trying to finish other tasks.
I'm not sure what is the right thing to do now? Do I stay at least a year before I decide to leave? Do I start applying for new jobs and leave as soon as I get one? I'm kind of afraid of going to another university, because I may face the same issues? I'm worried that if I leave academia then I lost the chance to do research independently. Starting my own business now is still risky (even though this is my dream)
I don't know what to do, I need advice...
