Embarking upon research as a graduate student or postdoc can be exciting and enriching - the start of a rewarding career. But the world of scientific research is also a competitive one, with grants and good jobs increasingly hard to find. "The Chicago Guide to Your Career in Science" is intended to help scientists not just cope with but excel at this critical phase in their careers.Victor A. Bloomfield and Esam E. El-Fakahany, both well-known scientists with extensive experience as teachers, mentors, and administrators, have combined their knowledge to create a guidebook that addresses all of the challenges that today's scientists-in-training face. They begin by considering the early stages of a career in science: deciding whether or not to pursue a PhD, choosing advisors and mentors, and learning how to teach effectively. Bloomfield and El-Fakahany then explore the skills essential to conducting and presenting research. "The Chicago Guide to Your Career in Science" offers detailed advice on how to pursue research ethically, manage time, and communicate effectively, especially at academic conferences and with students and peers. Bloomfield and El-Fakahany write in accessible, straightforward language and include a synopsis of key points at the end of each chapter, enabling readers to dip into relevant sections with ease.From students prepping for the GRE to postdocs developing professional networks to managers of corporate labs, scientists at every level will find "The Chicago Guide to Your Career in Science" an unparalleled resource.The toolkit includes advice on: choosing a graduate program; speaking effectively; defending your dissertation; making the most of scientific meetings; writing fellowship and grant proposals; landing a job; pursuing professional contacts; and, choosing an alternative career.
