So I got an interview invitation. The purpose of the interview is to secure funding with potential professors. One professor in the program has the research that I am very interested in but he is titled as "Emeritus." I know that becoming emeritus means you are officially retired but may still be involved in research. How should I politely ask him whether he will have projects available? Can I just ask him "I am interested in some of your research projects but I see that your title is emeritus so was wondering if you still have projects available?"
Hey all, Basically I am trying to gauge my potential for PhD studies in Cell and/or Molecular biology. I'm still narrowing down research topics. I would like to attend grad school in or right around NYC. This would include such schools as Columbia, NYU, Weill-Cornell, Rockefeller, SUNY Downstate, CUNY Graduate Center, Stony Brook University and several others. While I know my (weak) stats arn't likely to land me in the top schools in NYC, please give me some feedback and what my options may be and what I can do to improve my chances for any program. A buddy of mine recommended applying for technician positions in one of my labs of interest as a possible in as well. My stats: Overall GPA: ~3.5 (Cum Laude, 2010) Biology GPA: ~3.7 GRE: Quantitative: 150 (53rd percentile) Verbal: 158 (79th percentile) Writing: 3.5 (29th percentile) Two years of laboratory technician experience in a genetics/cell biology laboratory. Unfortunately no papers to speak of as our lab is more industry than research. I look forward to any input that you all may have for me and thank you in advance!
