Unless you are applying to a school that cares only about your teaching (increasingly rare), a description of your research generally follows next. The challenge here is not simply to describe your research, but to frame it in terms of your sub-field and discipline. The search committee, hasn't lived, eaten and breathed Post-Edwardian Hermeneutics for the past five years the way you have. And they haven't been there every step of the torturous process like your friends and significant others. So forgive them for not immediately recognizing your research at first blush for the path-breaking work that it is.
And don’t bother asking your pediatrician, they won’t know. Pediatricians know very little about the particularities of specific vaccines — or even the diseases they are meant to protect against in some cases. My ex-husband texted me from his daughter’s pediatrician’s office when the pediatrician tried to tell him that she should be vaccinated “because she might be in a car accident and need a blood transfusion some day.” I said, “Is she saying that donated blood isn’t screened for hepatitis B, because according to the CDC it most certainly IS screened and transfusion-related infection is virtually non-existent.”
