I think Teaching & Research is a great Career option. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find information about What Teaching & Research actually is. Most pages on the internet just talk about How to get into Teaching & Research. My research about a Career in Teaching & Research became a lot more meaningful when I found:

Career Video on Teaching & Research

In a video, Dr Kuldeep Kumar Raina has talked about various aspects of a Career in Teaching & Research. Dr Kuldeep Kumar Raina started by explaining Teaching & Research as: "A teacher (or an educator) is a person who helps others to acquire knowledge, competences or values. Research comprises "creative and systematic work undertaken to increase the stock of knowledge, including knowledge of humans, culture and society, and the use of this stock of knowledge to devise new applications." It is used to establish or confirm facts, reaffirm the results of previous work, solve new or existing problems, support theorems, or develop new theories." I watched the full video and I absolutely loved it.
