Yikes! It's not seriously almost the middle of February is it? Happy New Year readers! 12 new non-science books for my resolution this year. How about you?
Another semester has come and gone, final grades are in, and sadly, the winter holiday season is officially over. Which probably also means senioritis has officially set in, emails from graduate schools are piling up in your inbox, and you're wondering, "Can I graduate and get out of here already?!"
Whether you're preparing for the grad school interview, or narrowing in on a decision about which lab and adviser you want to work with for the next ~4+ years, there are a few questions you should ask first, before you make your decision.
It’s the Tennessee Volunteers’ first week of Fall semester 2013! The campus is full of students back from summer break, class syllabi have been handed out, and that first homework assignment has been assigned…ug. But hey, at least we get discounted football tickets right? This being my eighteenth first day of a new school year (chyah, I know), there was a lot that felt very familiar. It honestly feels like just a few months ago that I was starting my own first day on a college campus, in a huge lecture hall, alongside 200 other nervous faces. College is hard! Everyone always says there are a few things they wish they knew then to help make the transition from high school into college a little easier. Hopefully a few of these tips come in handy!
Welcome to Think Like a Postdoc. If you're a fan of science as much as I am, and/or are curious about getting a degree in a STEM field, or pursuing an interdisciplinary graduate degree (all from the perspective of a graduate student), then you're in the right place. Think Like a Postdoc also includes posts about my current lab and field research, including analytical chemistry, Arctic biogeochemistry, and energy & environmental policy. Comments and questions are always welcomed. And please tell me what you want to hear about next!
