Grad Lab Considerations

Blogger DrdrA at Blue Lab Coats writes that there are two things every person should consider when choosing a graduate lab ― the advisor and the project. It’s important to contemplate the advisor’s training record, the type of education you’d expect from them, and where their lab alumni have landed jobs. Another deciding factor, DrdrA says, is that she thinks it’s more important to love the specific research project, rather than choose a lab based upon the methodologies employed there. “Choosing grad labs based on advisor or project is not necessarily mutually exclusive though, there are all sorts of combinations of this,” she adds.
