katethekitcat Posted December 31, 2013 Share Posted December 31, 2013 Since we're all freaking out about applications (my profile says "public health," but my program has "molecular" in the title and I'm going to be in a biology lab the next 2-5 years), I thought it would be nice to have a place where can talk about, you know, that thing we all love enough that we're willing to put ourselves through this much hell to study it for a career. So, here are some jumping-off discusison points. Answer any or all, but keep grad school out of it! 1.) What are you interested in researching? What scientific quesiton/problem most intrigues you? 2.) What do you think is the biggest challenge facing researchers today (i.e. open publication vs. journals like Nature; securing funding, lack of scientific literacy, etc.) 3.) What's your favorite microbe, and why? (Or ecosystem, or organism, or whatever) 4.) Favorite lab technique? One that was hardest to master? 5.) Thing you're proudest of accomplishing in the lab? Biggest screw-up you ever had in lab? Or suggest your own! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
