phdthoughts Posted September 29, 2015 Share Posted September 29, 2015 Does anyone worry about being pigeonholed with current research? My thesis topic was rather nontraditional in subject and although I see the field pretty well exploding in the next 20 years, it's a bit on the fringes at the moment. Although my thesis itself was well received, and continues to be, I think I need to take a broader approach with my dissertation. It would be amazing if I came away working as a professor, but I'm not going to count on it, and want to make myself as marketable as possible to other sectors. I'm thinking of these things as I start to write my SOP, and deciding on where to apply. How much does this even matter at this point in the game?
