  1. Hi, I'm currently applying for my masters in I/O psychology. I'm mostly applying to American schools, but am considering also applying to the University of Waterloo in Canada. All of undergrad I've been told how important research experience is for grad school. I'm wondering if the same mindset applies when it comes to Canadian grad schools? Or is work experience more valued? Thank you!
  2. Right now I am doing my Masters Wanted to do my doctorate before doing my doctorate I want to publish my research papers having a list of publication in my mind like Scopus and Springer. Which is the better one to publish and where can I get the best conferences related to Dental and oral health in India . Hoping community members from the Grandcafe will guide me.
  3. Hiya, I am applying for microbiology/virology PhD programmes in the fall. Most applications require a minimum of 3 referees and a maximum of 5. I am on an integrated masters programme in the UK. I was wondering what the split between professors who have taught me (one to one teaching, so know me very well) and research supervisors? At the time of the application in Dec, I will have been about a month in into my masters year research project (start first week of Nov, Covid delayed everything). Should I ask my lab PI who is supervising my masters to write me a LoR despite the fact that he w
  4. Hey y'all! I'm currently applying to Clinical Psychology PhD programs for Fall 2021 admissions. This will be my first time every going through the application cycle, so yes, I'm very excited and very nervous Here's my conundrum though, I'm still not sure about my research interests. I just graduated from with my MA in Psychology this Spring, so I have had 2 years of 'official' psychology experience, if you may, and while I thoroughly enjoyed every core class I took (biopsych, ethics, cognitive, stats, etc), I'm still not sure about what exactly I want to research for the next 5 years...
  5. I am right now at that point in my career where I need to choose whether I need to take a thesis or project to end my Master's degree. I want to enter into the Industry side of Bioinformatics and I want to ask the recruiters what mainly they look in the candidates when they hire a bioinformatics student the technical knowledge or the research
  6. Hello everyone! I’m planning to apply to PhD programs in either Pharmacology or Comparative Medicine next fall. However, I’m in a bit of a pickle. For context, I’m an upcoming third year university student and I’m currently working at a large pharmaceutical company. This is a great opportunity for me because I plan to work in the biotech/pharmaceutical industry after I obtain my PhD degree (fingers crossed). Admittedly, with my current position, I’m not as heavily involved in research as I’d like to be but I do get exposure to it. However, my company is offering to “promote” me to a study
  7. I am currently a junior at a top CS degree in Europe and my current GPA is around 3.0 if converted to American system (the main reason for bad grades is that I am studying in my third language). I will have completed an internship at a Big4 company by the end of the summer, and have some other extracurriculars, but only one is related to research (a literature review paper graded by a professor). Is there a chance I can convince the admission committees that I am not dumb? I am looking to applying to a Research Internship for Spring or Summer 2021.
  8. Hi all, I hope this finds you well. I am currently writing my PhD in Near Eastern Archaeology. I used a very useful database that helped me organising my data. I thought that might be of interest for some of you. I think it could be also used to record finds on excavations. I am not sure if I can post the link to it in here? Otherwise I am happy to provide a review. Stay safe and take care
  9. For folks who graduated from/are attending Smith's social work program in 2018 and beyond: Did you enjoy/find value in the research sequence that replaced the thesis requirement? Is there an option/possibility to write a thesis even though it's not required? If anyone has completed/is completing a research practicum, any experience shared would be much appreciated! I'm bummed that the thesis isn't part of the program anymore. I'm from southern CA, and most local MSW programs do not have a thesis requirement. Interestingly, only a handful of state schools include a thesis option.
  10. What exactly do people mean when they say 2 years of research? Is this two years part time? A few hours a week or more like 20? I understand the more the better, but what is the minimum for a two year time period? Also, my GPA is a 3.5. What GRE should I shoot for? Is apply to 8-10 schools enough? These are not Ivy leage or anything special. I'm new at this and I've gotten so many mixed answers. TYIA
  11. Hello all! I never thought I'd make it back onto this website, but here I am. I graduate with my M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis here in a month from a top university in my field. It's a terminal masters degree, I'd say similar to M.S. in CMHC for those unfamiliar with ABA. It pushes a scientist-practitioner model strongly. In short, I provide a therapeutical service to individuals focusing on their behavior, changing behavior and using the science of behaviorism to teach new behaviors. I have a 4.0 graduate school average. Unfortunately, while here, I didn't really get involved i
  12. I am going to save the whole backstory and just get into my question. I am a first-year PhD student, and I came to this university because my PI's research is a perfect fit. I came out over the summer to begin research early and get into the swing of things, but this is undoubtedly NOT the lab for me. I'm miserable and it is a horribly toxic environment. I have contacted both of my previous PI's and they agree that I need to change labs. My question is, how do I go about doing so? As soon as word gets back that I'm looking into funding available in other labs, my PI will fire
  13. This is my first post to this site and I'm relatively new to the whole process. I'm graduating this coming may with a BS in Applied Mathematics and a Minor in Business Administration. My GPA was a 3.6, GRE scores are Q : 168 V : 153 AWA : 5. I have applied for programs at University of Denver, Depaul, UChicago, Columbia Data Science Institute, and USF and I'm working on several more. I've gotten into USF, Denver (which i don't plan on attending) and Depaul, I've interviewed with Columbia last Wednesday but I'm aware it may take another week or so to get a decision. I was a research assistant a
  14. Hi! A little blurb about me before I delve into my situation. I graduated from this master's program in experimental psychology in Indiana back in May 2019. But since I didn't get my thesis finished until July, my school put down my official graduation month as August 2019. During my time at this school, I worked at this research lab that consisted of me, my adviser, and undergraduate RAs (FYI, they change every semester). This lab I used to work at examined attention. I graduated with a 3.89 GPA and after I finished my coursework and defended my thesis, I moved back home. I know thi
  15. I'm well aware I am not the first person to ask this question. How important is it to have your research out on publication? (More so, would it make that much difference if this is an international student?) I have been taking gap year and I will be applying this cycle (December) to Clinical Psychology and some Counseling psychology programs that are fully funded. I honestly don't think I can pay for grad school myself. I'm still unfamiliar with the posting guidelines of this website so please feel free to leave a comment if you think this post belongs somewhere else! I graduated last yea
  16. So, I am currently in a master's program and my goal is to gain admission into a clinical psychology program (to specialize in Neuropsych). However, I JUST landed an RA position to gain research experience (my master's is not research, it's more clinical emphasis). I got my BA this past summer '19. Option A: Apply to PhD programs this fall (2020), where I'll be in the lab for 10 months by the time I submit my apps (1 yr & 7 mo. by the time I matriculate). I will also most likely be able to get LORs from professors at my master's program. Option B: Apply to PhD programs next fall
  17. Recent CS grad who is planning on applying to PhD programs in the near future. While I have some research experience (including an REU from this past summer), I'm currently taking a gap year to recharge before applications and was wondering if it is possible to gain more relevant experience in the months that I do have before applying. I have one work offer, and am interviewing for another potential company (software developer/consulting, not research related), in addition to sending apps for research assistant positions at a couple national labs. Any advice on a path that I could take fo
  18. This question always trips me up! Do I go broad and say that I'm a postmodernist or something? Or do I talk about the smaller scale theories I use from one or two writers? I never know how to go about answering questions about what theories I use in my research because often the articles we read don't usually say that I'm taking a specific type of approach. I'm in linguistic anthropology so I use a lot of semiotic theory, a lot of identity/interaction/discourse theory for discourse analysis, but I never know if they have actual labels. I get very tripped up by this question and I need to
  19. I'm a sophomore undergrad in a top 10 institution studying study Econ and sociology. I'm interested in social science in general, but pure economics (too much math for me) or pure social/political theory are not interesting to me. Other than that, I would like to explore the breadth of all social sciences. I wonder if there are recommendations for good master programs that prepare students for phd programs? Thanks!
  20. Really anxious about the results for summer@epfl programme. Has anyone received nay response yet?
  21. I intend to apply for PhD in US ..I have bachelor’s degree in zoology and master’s degree in industrial biotechnology with thesis based on nanosciences and application in drug delivery. Most of the unis are offering same type of research in chem engg dept, chemistry or biomedical engg dept and offer admission to the students having the very same bachelor’s degree. Now as i have different background how can i tackle the problem of prerequisite courses ? Is there any university offering phd with research focus on nanosciences but takes students from diverse background.
  22. Hi everyone, I'm a research assistant at Loyola Marymount University, and the lab I work at is looking for a full-time post-doc research fellow. I'll link the job posting here: https://jobs.lmu.edu/postings/41883 Just wanted to get the word out! If you think you fit, we would love to hear from you! Thanks :)
  23. I am planning to pursue Masc in ece(specialisation in biomedical) from a canadian university. Could someone please let me know the research opportunities that would be available for me after I complete my masters? How is the industrial research scenario in Canada right now? Thank you for the help
  24. Hi everyone! I will study as a master student for the next 2 years and I plan to apply for a Ph.D program in the future. One thing that I'm very concerned about is that I don't have any publications in my field. In fact, I really love participating in research and I have joined in several projects before. Unfortunately, I encountered some lazy or incapable partners who always threw their work on me even after the work had been clearly assigned to everyone. At that time I was too naive and just angrily abandoned those projects and let them fail...After that, the partners even didn't care about
