沙龙简介:
    每位进行博士学位阶段学习并致力于研究的研究生都会将学术生涯作为其职业追求。博士学习是为今后的学术准备了一个方向—进行聚焦性研究和在相应学术期刊上发表成果。这两项活动都需要包装性技巧,内含设想、现有知识集成、实验方案制订和运行管理、时间安排、写作和口头表达。获得这此技巧的模式就是在学术导师的指导下的个人学徒关系。从这方面讲,跟一个高产的并且投缘的导师非常重要。一个博士生通过这种手把手的教育模式能学到很多。
    博士生还不能应付一个年青的教职的很多其实职责,因为他们刚从实验室或图书馆学术阶段转变到现代学术世界的现实事务。这些现实事务包括有效的教学、管理研究团队、发表文章和退稿、终身职位过程、为研究和单位申请经费、国际交往、参与学术活动(如:组织会议)、扩展自己的学术圈子和处理令人厌恶的学术政策。年青的教授往往很快感到压力!

    Academic career is often the goal of graduate students who embark on their doctoral programs with a vision of research as their professional pursuit. The doctoral studies prepare such future academics in one area – conducting a rather focused research and dissemination of results in scholarly journals. Both of these activities require a setoff skills including imagination, integration of current knowledge, planning and managing experiments, time management, written and oral communications. The model for acquiring the skills is still of a personal apprenticeship under an academic mentor. In this context having a relationship with the mentor that is productive and congenial is very important. A doctoral student can learn a lot from this hands-on educational model. 
    Yet the doctoral studies do not address many other responsibilities of a young academic faculty who are commonly transported from a lab or a library study to the realities of the modern academic world. These realities include effective teaching, managing research teams, publishing or perishing, the tenure process, fund raising for research and for institutional needs, international contacts, involvement in professional activities (e.g., conference organizing), developing personal contacts with other researchers and handling often treacherousacademic office politics. The plate of a young professor is suddenly very full!
