9783642158469: Mastering Your PhD: Survival and Success in the Doctoral Years and Beyond

"Mastering Your PhD: Survival and Success in the Doctoral Years and Beyond" helps guide PhD students through their graduate student years. Filled with practical advice on getting started, communicating with your supervisor, staying the course, and planning for the future, this book is a handy guide for graduate students who need that extra bit of help getting started and making it through. While mainly directed at PhD students in the sciences, the book's scope is broad enough to encompass the obstacles and hurdles that almost all PhD students face during their doctoral training. Who should read this book? Students of the physical and life sciences, computer science, math, and medicine who are thinking about entering a PhD program; doctoral students at the beginning of their research; and any graduate student who is feeling frustrated and stuck. It's never too early -- or too late! This second edition contains a variety of new material, including additional chapters on how to communicate better with your supervisor, dealing with difficult people, how to find a mentor, and new chapters on your next career step, once you have your coveted doctoral degree in hand.

Review:

Some book reviews on 1st edition: "A must for any student in natural sciences that is doing or is considering doing a PhD. Also, I strongly recommend PhD supervisors to read this book -- they will learn a lot." Henrik Stapelfeldt, Professor of Chemistry, Arhus Denmark "At last, a book about graduate study that paints the big picture and that recognizes PhD work as a real job involving many of the same relationship and business issues that will be important to students throughout their careers. Outstanding!" Lou Bloomfield, Professor of Physics, University of Virginia, USA "Mastering Your PhD is a wonderful book and a pleasure to read. It helps PhD students prepare for the road ahead and provides a wealth of handy tips!" Aletta Wubben, Trainer and coach for scientists, The Netherlands
