Colon Semenza ´ 7 Read & download Many graduate students continue to be regarded as apprentices despite the fact that they are expected to design and teach their own classes serve on university committees and conference and publish regularly The Chronicle of Higher E. p214 The first thing to do is have a drinkIt s a pretty harsh book But you do need to be able to take it if you want to get anything out of grad schoolFocused very much on humanities but still has some useful points that relate to grad school in STEM and other fieldschokengtitiktitikchokeng12 14 clarifies the distinctions between Assistant Professor just started still working towards tenure Associate Professor tenured and Full Professor promotion based on major new credentials beyond those that earned you tenurechokengtitiktitikchokeng29 Because I will have to write a dissertation publish teach well and serve my department just in order to get a job interview and since I still have to learn how to do all of those things I should be working at least as hard as those who already know how to do them Act like your professors not like your studentsLater he points out his 10 hoursweekday plus 5 13 hoursweekend schedule Ooofp55 In an ideal world you d wait until your dissertation had been revised for publication or other major tenure reuirements were met before starting a familyWhoa This guy has really low expectations for his ideal In a truly ideal world it would be possible to maintain healthy work life balance in academia so you wouldn t need to worry about timing children vs tenurep72 But is it really worth it to take a course simply because it might prevent you from having to read The Mill on the Floss on your own A word of advice on this point if you find yourself lacking the energy to read a George Eliot novel on your own leave graduate school nowThat s fair I didn t feel ready to go to grad school in statistics for a while until I noticed I was reading textbooks articles and learning new statistical techniues in my spare timep101 Anytime you have to write a seminar paper ask your professor if and how they think it could be revised for publicationchokengtitiktitikchokeng107 For job talks be prepared to say what writers on education have most influenced your teaching ie be able to show you ve at least read something on educationpedagogical theorychokengtitiktitikchokeng110 Use the syllabus to reinforce that academic dishonesty will not be tolerated and that the maximum penalty for violators will be enforcedp123 When TA ing ask the professor if you can teach a class You can use the materials for your teaching portfolio and perhaps get the professor to write a teaching observation for the portfolio as wellchokengtitiktitikchokeng124 Keep a teaching file with syllabi from courses you taught sample lesson plans sample assignments photocopied graded papers so you can show the feedback you give student evals letters of recommendation or observation memos any unsolicited positive feedback from students emails etc and ideas for future coursesassignmentsKeep a teaching CV listing what you ve taught and any awardshonors teaching related service and pedagogical articles you ve writtenpresentedWrite up your teaching philosophy incl any sources it s based on and concrete examples of how you put it into practiceBefore you go on the job hunt try to have an observation letter from your major advisor and at least one from a former studentchokengtitiktitikchokeng139 140 What s ironic about the fact that so many people wind up hating their exams so much is that the comps period could be the best time in one s graduate career if one were to approach them sanely and systematically Think about this your advisor tells you to go away for four or five months so that you can read a hundred or books You don t have to go to class any You don t have to write seminar papers You don t even have to leave your apartment You just have to read What most PhDs realize long after comps have ended is how badly they long for the freedom to read and learn that they were granted back then Take my advice be sure to exercise whatever precautions are necessary for you to avoid becoming lonely or embittered but remember to enjoy the freedom you ve been granted When you begin your preparations for comps you will know a lot about your field When you turn in your exams half a year later you will be an expert in your field This sort of intellectual growth is precisely what you came forp152 Once course work ends successful scholars demonstrate an unusual ability to impose structure where practically speaking almost no structure existsp184 Five good reasons to attend conferences 1 Vet your researchideas before getting them published 2 Advertise your research so that people associate that topic with your name 3 Networking 4 Pitch research to book and journal editors 5 Immerse yourself in the professional culture of academeBut they re not good for the sake of CV building they can form a nice supplement but should not be the core of your CV especially graduate student conferences as opposed to real conferenceschokengtitiktitikchokeng195 Have a very short bio written up and bring it with you when you present in case the organizer wants to introduce speakerschokengtitiktitikchokeng201 There is no reason any to hire a PhD who has yet to prove she can publishp207 Talk to your professors to figure out what are the most important journals in your field A recommended practice is to construct a list relatively early in your PhD career of the top five journals in which you hope to publishp230 Service is less important on your CV than Research and Teaching but it is still important so be smart and volunteer for service activities that will be most helpful to you 1 Be a force in your field show up to talks in your field and social events attend and organize reading groups and talks help to recruit grad students and get involved in job searches All of these will give concrete things for your rec letter writers to say about how you re invested in this field s community 2 Grad student government get a sense of negotiating academicdepartment politics 3 Admin or professional posts eg advising undergrads helping edit a journal or organize a conference a useful way to diversify your experience as long as you keep also getting teaching experiencechokengtitiktitikchokeng241 Recommends Surviving Your Academic Job Hunt Advice for Humanities PhDSp244 Go to job training sessions at your school at least a year before your job search actually starts Also read The Chronicle of Higher Education Do statisticians read this too or is it geared at humanities folksp254 Memorize 30 second 2 minute and 5 minute oral summaries of your dissertation Every interviewer will ask about itchokengtitiktitikchokeng255 s you ll be asked at job interviews 1 About your interest in that type of school esp if you went to another eg big research uni vs small liberal arts college 2 Pedagogical vision Who s influenced your teaching Dream course to teach 3 Practical teaching skills How to deal with apathetic student With an unruly one Views on mandatory attendance 4 Curricular politics what courses should be reuired 5 Research expertise what s most influential right now 6 Ability to handle challenges they may ask an intentionally offensive or challenge the need for your field just to see how you respond 7 University politics how to justify tenure What s with the scandal at such and such uni 8 Personal character or history why d you choose this field What motivates you 9 Future goals What will you bring to the school that hires youAlso s you should ask them What areas would you hope that I might develop for you and What are you hoping this hire can do for your department Don t ask things you should already know like department sizechokengtitiktitikchokeng267 When negotiating job offer ask about computer support travel support for research or conferences moving expenses And is the department able to help find work for your partnerI had no idea people can even ask this last one Is that common Is it only for people with an academic partner or in generalp272 Some of the sample syllabus wording is goodThe professor does not take kindly to excessive absences Because your understanding and engagement of the material depends on your presence in our class I will take absences seriouslyPlease make it a point to turn off your cell phone before class beginsPlagiarism demonstrates contempt for your instructor peers and the purposes of liberal education If you are caught plagiarizing you will automatically fail the course for violation of the student code and be referred to the dean of students for judicial affairsEveryone may automatically drop one uiz grade If you take all the uizzes you may drop one additional uiz grade To dissuade lateness I will give most uizzes in the first five minutes of class Please be here on time
