"On the topic of published research..."
Do lots of research and publishing. There is no such thing as too much research or too many academic publications in this world.

This often includes substantially increased salaries and better resources/support by your current or (more likely) new employing institution. Today, a lack of ongoing research and a small publication history actually hurts your career opportunities in the academic world. Also, try to find several faculty members within and outside of your institution to co-author with on academic publications.
