The Careers feature 'Hidden in the past' (Nature 549, 419–421; 2017) gave the wrong details for reference 7. It should have read Pagnotta, A., Schaefer, B. E., Xiao, L., Collazzi, A. C. & Kroll, P. Astron. J. 138, 1230–1234 (2009).
The Careers feature 'Data domination' (Nature 548, 613–614; 2017) erroneously described Amelia Taylor as a former tenure-track mathematician. In fact, she was a tenured associate professor.
