dopamine_machine Posted October 15, 2020 Share Posted October 15, 2020 Hi all, I know this question has already been addressed in another post, but I can't seem to wrap my head around the distinction between a Statement of Purpose and a Research Statement in the context of a biology PhD application. My SOP currently outlines what led me to the field of interest, my research history, and my aspirations. It overall avoids super technical details and talks about projects in a more limited way. Would a Research Statement bring up these ideas in a more detailed way (talking about specific experiments conducted and what I did exactly? How much stress is dedicated to a Research Statement when an SOP is required, as the research statements for the programs I am applying to seemed to be more supplementary and not like their own tab (whereas the SOPs are always in their own specific page)? I know this varies from program to program, but I wanted to see what everyone though. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
