Why didn’t I find this gem earlier, like at the beginning of my PhD? Excellent primer on designing better figures:

I’m beginning to plan for post-PhD life & constantly feel at a cross-roads about what is next. I’m a first generation academic, so the path ahead is not clear. I’d be grateful for any advice from ECRs, permanent lecturers, and people who left academia.

Why should I enroll in a PhD when I could just apply for a job? This is a common question in 1st-gen students struggling to justify their choices to their families after college. What would you recommend to a student facing this situation?

I passed my PhD final defense! Just a few minor revisions left before I graduate in May, but I'm basically a doctor of music theory now!

What is the upper bound for how many equations are allowed on a slide? I just went to a talk where, I kid you not, I counted 23.

When I’m overwhelmed, I knit or crochet... 🤷🏼‍♂️ What is your academic coping mechanism?!

After 4 years of research, I have found: -Nursing work is hard, and nurses are smart -Work changes constantly -Work is easier if we are nice to each other, and policies are good A PhD, ladies and gentlemen 😉 (Written up findings coming soon!)

tip: It's important to remember that: You are not your PhD. You are not the number of papers you've written. You are not your CV. You are not your h-index. There is so much more.

Successful experiments aren't just the ones where you get the outcome you were hoping for. Successful experiments are also those that teach you something new, even if it wasn't what you had hoped for. Both types of success are something you can be proud of.

When someone has paper published or wins an award or gets promoted you only see the final success. You don't see the earlier rejections, revisions and setbacks. You might assume they found it easy but that is rarely so.
