There is a huge growth in biomedical research in Ottawa and an exciting scientific environment, with recruiting going on all over the place.
In gearing up for the job market, many students have now gone on to create their own online lectures, including multimedia presentations of their thesis work.
The first question that must be asked about the case is: Why is Sarah exploring possibilities for mentoring only now?
"One participant described to the panel how he supervises four Ph.D. students, juggles his own research and teaching commitments, and earns "less than a branch manager at McDonald's".
"... It is unfair to expect Professor Jones to take on disproportionate mentoring responsibilities just because she is a member of an underrepresented group."
"Wie ein roter Faden -- wohl nicht zuletzt auf Grundlage des eigenen, reichhaltigen Erfahrungsschatzes des Autors -- zieht sich ein zynischer Unterton durch das gesamte Buch."
"... I suspect Carol Jones will somehow find the time to advise Sarah."
After reflecting on my own experience, I think that Carol should mentor Sarah.
Is one's research advisor also a mentor?
I sent out a round robin to a dozen heads of departments asking whether they would take me in as a science writer in residence.
