Grad Student Life

  • Visiolibriphobia: Fear of Facebook
    "Call me crazy, but I am not on Facebook. That’s strange for somebody my age and stranger still for somebody who belongs to a group of writers here at UVenus who are masters at using social media."
  • Are You Reading These 17 Science Blogs? You Should
    "I try to put together a balanced mix of blogs written for and by scientists. In this list we have blogs with tips for scientists, advice for PhD and graduate school students, blogs of science communicators, blogs with tools for scientists, and many others." (Tip: It's not just for scientists — there are quite a few on the list with more general advice for grad students, like the Three Month Thesis, Research Whisperer, and GradHacker.)
