Advice: how to succeed in academiaSubmitted by drupaladmin on 5 January 2012.
In a previous post I linked to some advice from sociobiologist Joan Strassmann on how to write a good NSF preliminary proposal. But that's not the only thing Joan Strassmann has good advice on. Her blog is an awesome resource, packed with good advice about succeeding in academia. The writing is excellent too--warm, wise, and humane. Wish she'd been blogging when I was starting out! (not that I didn't get good advice when I was starting out, but more is always better)
