As part of my new role as the go-to person for everything related to my department’s trainees, I’ve put together a list of resources that I thought some readers might also find useful or interesting. The list is posted at GoogleDocs and includes websites, books and podcasts relating to the Canadian Common CV, proposal / thesis / manuscript writing, giving presentations, communicating with the public and the media, academic and other career advice, local events and organisations, etc – plus PhD Comics and assorted other
time-wasters valuable insights into academic culture.
The list obviously has a local focus, but there are resources on the list that should appeal to people in other locations too.
If you know of any related resources I’ve missed, please add them in the comments of this post and I’ll include them in future versions of my list. This very much includes blog posts – I’ve included a few, but unfortunately my memory of blog posts I didn’t write is very short-term, and I know I’ve missed some excellent posts that deserve to be included. So don’t be shy about promoting your own posts!
