The process of finding a faculty position is, to say the least, challenging and not fun. Listed below are some resources that I’ve found helpful in navigating this path. I cannot overstate my gratitude towards those who generously shared their wisdom.
Why LaTeX LaTeX has become increasingly popular for writing academic paper in ecology. I almost exclusively write in LaTeX. My main reasons are
LaTeX is so much easier to use than Word for quantitative research.
In the near end of my PhD, as a quantitative ecologist, I thought it might be fun to visualize some PhD statistics. Here I am gonna show the record of paper rejections, the diveristy of the journals I published in, and the time series of email exchanges with my advisor.
The Long March for PhD finally came to the end. I am proud of what came out of it. Though all my research projects had quite different motivations originally, they all came together forming a consistent theme: an environment-dependent framework to study how ecological networks maintain or change biodiversity in local ecological communities.
