We came across a helpful website today, How to Do Great Research: Creativity and grad school survival advice from Professor Nick Feamster, which is written by a professor at Georgia Tech. It is full of tips and advice for Ph.D. students. We especially liked the latest blog post about Managing Your Advisor. Some of the tips include:
- Ask your advisor for what you need
- Try to meet your advisor once a week, even if you think you have nothing to talk about
- Attend every single group meeting
- If you need more of your advisor’s time, ask for it
Head on over to the blog for the full article and let us know if you have any advice on the subject in the comments!
