A Ph.D. Is Not Enough: A Guide to Survival in Science/ Peter J. Feibelman

Reading, Mass. : Addison-Wesley, 1993.



Chapters:

1. Do you see yourself in this picture?

2. Important choices: a thesis adviser, a postdoctoral job

3. Giving talks

4. Writing papers: publishing without perishing

5. From here to tenure: choosing a career path

6. Job interviews

7. Getting funded

8. Establishing a research program

Page 36-37

About seminar:

1. Your seminar is a performance. It needs to be carefully planned and thoroughly rehearsed.

2. Present yourself confidently. Act as though you have enjoyed doing your research and that your results are exciting to you.

3. Respect your audience. They are spending an hour to hear you. They want to understand what you have to say, even if your specialty is not theirs. They do not want to be "snowed," nor do they want to be treated as "experts" in a field where they really are not.

4. Do not waste your time with filler. Make sure each slide pushes your story forward. If your talk is a bit too short, no one will object.

5. Make your visual aids pleasing to the eye without too much of a Madison Avenue look.

some qualities you may find in terrible advisors:

  • in discussing your paper, he or she tells anecdotes about the author to impress on students that the advisor knows much more than the students
  • he or she reads a student paper only one time
  • he or she changes the subject when there are disagreements. e.g. "we could talk about this forever but I think we are all working on the same basic idea."
  • the advisor reacts to a student's suggested readings by saying, "Why in the world are you wasting your time reading that, anyway?"
  • the advisor is far more interested in displaying his or her erudition by coming up with catchphrases or buzzwords that have no real meaning.
  • The advisor assigns older students to guide younger ones.
  • He or she involves students in decision-making for only routine matters such as spending an hour deciding who should be a discussion leader.
  • He or she has students handle computer system administration and tell them it counts as research.
  • The advisor shares his or her most trivial thoughts with students.
  • The advisor avoids any contact with students.
  • He or she is never demanding.
  • He or she ridicules anyone who asks questions.
  • The advisor takes no interest in courses the students are taking.
  • He or she mumbles in an apparent attempt to avoid communication with the student.
