A PhD is about learning how to learn. The research you want to be doing 20 years from now probably doesn’t even exist yet, so what you really need to gain in grad school is the ability to dive into a new area, learn, and develop mastery.

Many PhD students think their project has to be their magnum opus, a masterpiece which will be the best research they ever do. In fact, a PhD is training, to give you the tools for a future research career. Supervisors would do well to remember this too!

Typically, the hardest part of my day isn't doing science... it's figuring out how to format things in Microsoft Office 🙃

The hardest part of grad school isn’t grad school. It’s being poor. I literally can’t afford a work life balance.

My PhD student wanted to do an experiment I was sure wasn't going to work. She did it anyway, got a really beautiful and interesting result. That's how it's done kids, don't let your PIs get in the way of your curiosity!

I’ve always thought doing a PhD is like a GBBO technical. You know nothing, you’re surrounded by people who look like they know what they’re doing, you have a task(s) to complete with little guidance and at the end you get critiqued by 2 experts

Deciding when to work and when not to work is perhaps the most challenging task faced by a PhD student.

If I had a dollar for every time I told a student to stop apologizing for having feelings in my office I would be so rich. Hey this guide is awesome. Really, it's ok to have feelings in grad school, to ask your advisor for something you need, to say no.

When I call for better in academia, a common pushback response is 'students need to take control of their education'. I think this response is a cop out. BOTH mentors and students need to work together for an effective training environment.

The only way you 100% won't get something is if you don't try for it. Apply for that fellowship, internship, or job. Pursue those connections. You never know what someone will see in you or who will give you a chance. Give YOURSELF that chance 💖

If you’re applying to Graduate school this fall, remember to apply for the application fee waiver/reduction if you qualify. It’s a couple more steps in the already lengthy process but it’s worth the extra effort if it’s offered at your desired program!

It costs exactly $0.00 to be kind & respectful to our colleagues, peers, mentee/or(s), trainees, students (etc) and yet here we are, still struggling with that.

Thought of the day: If professors openly admit what Hogwarts houses they associate with, it may be easier to help students pick an advisor and research group.
