Advice for Young Scholars
Thanks to Aaron Clauset for anonymizing --- and otherwise editing for public consumption --- the notes from the first of our four panel discussions of advice for young scholars (both within and outside of academia). The panels were held at the kick-off meeting of the Mathematics Research Community on "Network Science" from almost half a year ago. We framed things with a focus on mathematics, computer science, and networks, but you'll see that most of these things apply much more broadly than that. Please spread this widely, pass along to your research groups and colleagues, etc. Part 1: the faculty market Part 2: balancing work and life Part 3: doing interdisciplinary work Part 4: grants and fundraising Finally, here is a a copy of the notes for all four panels. Note (11/27/14): I will add the links to parts 2–4 once Aaron posts them. Update (12/03/14): Parts 2–4 are now posted.
