I can’t say enough good things about Mindy
Levine’s’
article in the Nucleus, “My journey
from graduate
student to post-doc.” 1

She offers her personal experiences and
reflections
including:

- she seriously started her in depth search
14 months before completion of her Ph.D.
commitments

- she talks about the field she chose and
tactics for interacting with people she
considered working with
- she explored obtaining her own grants and
external funding, realizing that the better
she does this the greater the chance of
winning her choice,…

and the full time position that follows.

Good detail is listed in the article for those
seeking
postdoctoral.  (pages 3 and 12).
