With this site, I’m hoping to detail any useful information I can produce on getting into graduate school, working through graduate school and moving into a junior faculty position afterwards. I’ve done all these things (along with a postdoc en route), so I have both my own experiences and those of my friends going through this journey to draw on.
I’m hoping to stay somewhat down to earth with posts. Probably we all get enough dense material working in our subject area. This will, by it’s very nature, give many posts an “inexact” air. Readers are certainly welcome to chime in with their thoughts and experiences, which will be particularly relevant when they differ from my own.
My own background is in a STEM discipline, graduating from an R1 university and working at a teaching university.
