Advice For Working On A Research Project At A Thinktank

Monday, November 17, 2008
1. Never hire undergraduates to help you collect or enter data. Or do a lit review. Or write any text. Or basically anything. Ever.

2. Never be supervised by someone who does not have a PhD.

3. Never take over at the "end" of a project that has gone nowhere for months.

4. Never agree to any timeline that you did not create.

5. And never, ever do research in your boss's major area of interest.

Just some stuff I've learned over the last 2 weeks.
