  1. Hello everyone! I am in the process of writing up my first manuscript for publication. I wanted to see if you have any tips or resources that you found helpful in writing a strong publication. Thank you!
  2. Here is an interesting article I read on Science Careers that mirrors a lot of my own concerns and concerns of graduate students I know. However, it seems like in academia it is not a topic that is openly discussed (for whatever reason). Science – 30 Jun 17 Extraordinary and poor Ever since I was in high school, I have dreamed of becoming a neuroscientist. Now a postdoc in a cutting-edge neuroimaging lab, I am proud of the work I have done so far and excited that I am very close to making that dream career a reality. Yet,... Please let me know your thoughts and comments.
  3. As I near the end of my time in graduate school, I am contemplating my options for the future. In addition to academia and industry, I am considering alternative routes such as IP law and technology transfer. I am interested to know your plans after you graduate. Have you decided yet? -Grace Student Neuronline Contributor
  4. If you plan to pursue a graduate degree, consider the ways you can differentiate yourself, as suggested by neuroscience program faculty. David Talmage, PhD Stony Brook University “Do homework about the program where you will be interviewing. If you don’t seem to know who you’re interacting with — if you haven’t looked at the faculty list — it’s a big turnoff. Also be able to speak intelligently about your experience. It doesn’t have to be earth shattering, and you don’t have to be published, but showing that you’ve engaged intellectually in your research project really sets you apart. One of the key elements of the interview and application process is your ability to communicate that you understand what research is, why you’re going to graduate school, and why it excites you.” Thomas Naselaris, PhD Medical University of South Carolina “Have a passion for neuroscience and research, and some technical training to match your passion for studying the brain.” Richard Bodnar, PhD City University of New York “Some degree of experience working in a laboratory setting to give you the abilities and skills to engage in and understand collaborative research.” Phil Quirk, PhD Colorado State University “Quantitative skills are most important, particularly if you want to do cognitive neuroscience.” What skills and qualities do you look for in an incoming graduate student? *Comments adapted from interviews conducted at Neuroscience 2016.

  5. As an undergraduate, the best way you can decide if you want to go to grad school is to sample some of the laboratory environments (for a couple of months, not years) that you think might be interesting. Link back to full article
  6. Halfway through my second year in a neuroscience graduate program this winter, I encountered a new challenge in the lab. Unlike last year, when I endured the pressure of exams, the monotony of daily classes, and a feeling of not belonging, this year I experienced something else: failure.It is frequently said that to be a scientist is to fail. That’s easy to say and understand in theory — until you go through it yourself. Link back to full article
  7. Come say hi to us at BU’s GPN table at the grad student fair and make sure to check out our website to learn more about BU’s new interdisciplinary NSF doctoral Research Training Program Understanding the Brain with a specialization in Neurophotonics - http://www.bu.edu/neurophotonics-nrt/
