Today I will be starting a blog post series on the challenges and rewards of starting a new PhD program. I hope to write every couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for the links below to become active!

  • Balancing coursework and lab work: the breadth and the depth
  • Learning rotation dynamics: how to really understand a lab
  • Knowing nothing: keeping an open mind
  • Managing your position: where do you stand in your class

As a primer, Science just published and advice column with thoughts from upper-level graduate students. It is a great start to these important topics!
