An interesting resource for PhDs, postdocs and early career researchers

I recently came across the following document by Professor Alan M Johnson, which appears to be distributed freely by Elsevier and entitled “Charting a Course for a Successful Research Career: A Guide for Early Career Researchers – 2nd edition“.

While targeted for early career researchers, defined as post-PhD, I find many of the ground covered in that document could be of interest to PhD students also.

“ However, a major factor, and perhaps the prime factor to consider in planning your research career, is selecting your research Supervisor.”

The quote above is a good example of due diligence that any students should do, even for graduate studies. I already pointed this out before.

Have a good read 😉
