MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is an essential guide to exploring and pursuing science career options, both within and beyond the academy, for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and all who work with them, including faculty and university administrators. Next Gen PhD brings together all that is needed for a scientist to embark on his or her career journey, whether in academia or beyond.--Laura Stark, Harvard University
An important book that is long overdue. Next Gen PhD displays broad experience and command of the most critical steps in the transition from academic researcher to working professional. A state-of-the-art, go-to book for science PhDs and those thinking of pursuing one.--Andrew Green, University of California, Berkeley
Next Gen PhD: A Guide to Career Paths in Science is a practical and thorough manual for the entire career transition process, from defining personal interests and deciding on a career path all the way to day one of a new job. Written by experienced career counselor Melanie Sinche, it is geared toward postdocs and graduate students who may not have access to effective career counseling or mentorship or are not satisfied with what they have received thus far.--Teegan A. Dellibovi-Ragheb"Science" (08/26/2016)
An excellent resource and timely companion for scientists learning to take on one of the most important questions of all: how to build a happy, productive career and a satisfying life. Melanie Sinche presents data, tools, and ways of thinking about the future that will be helpful for anyone considering what's next after formal training as a researcher is complete. Readers who follow the book's exercises and put thought into building their own career notebook will find themselves on a rational path through all the stages of moving from trainee to working professional, whether at the lab bench or in other work environments. With advice for self-reflection, career exploration, job search, negotiation of terms, and future growth, Next Gen PhD will be welcome reading for those thinking about their next career move and for those mentoring and training new scientists.--Victoria McGovern, Burroughs Wellcome Fund
