* 199 tips for getting your PhD and surviving and thriving in your first years of teaching
* Irreverent, but serious, guide to what higher education institutions are REALLY like
* Illustrated with original cartoons to bring the hints to life
Just landed your first faculty position? Close to getting your Ph.D., and planning a career in academe? Already in your first job? This insightful guide will help you achieve success.
What will academic life be like? How do you discover its tacit rules? Develop the habits and networks needed for success? What issues will you encounter if you’re a person of color, or a woman? How is higher education changing?
In 199 succinct, and often humorous but seriously practical hints, Paul Gray and David E. Drew share their combined experience of many years as faculty and (recovering) administrators to offer insider advice—the kind that’s rarely taught or even talked about in graduate school.
For instance, Gray and Drew advise you on what you can do to become known in your field and also to be humble about your Ph.D. They also warn you of the danger points along the Ph.D. path, and the possible stumbling blocks with litigious students. Their hints can cover topics as lofty as quantitative and qualitative methods and as mundane—but still as important—as negotiating campus parking.
For easy reference as you climb the academic ladder, the hints are divided into 15 short chapters and 4 appendices covering the stages and responsibilities of faculty life.
As the authors state, “It is a good life and it is a lifestyle for which you even get paid”. These hints will help you both make a valuable contribution to, and get the most from, academe.
And if you are really penurious, persuade a family member or friend to buy this book for you.
