Product Description:

A concise and accessible primer on the scientific writer's craft

The ability to write clearly is critical to any scientific career. The Scientist's Guide to Writing provides practical advice to help scientists become more effective writers so that their ideas have the greatest possible impact.

Drawing on his own experience as a scientist, graduate adviser, and editor, Stephen Heard emphasizes that the goal of all scientific writing should be absolute clarity; that good writing takes deliberate practice; and that what many scientists need are not long lists of prescriptive rules but rather direct engagement with their behaviors and attitudes when they write. He combines advice on such topics as how to generate and maintain writing momentum with practical tips on structuring a scientific paper, revising a first draft, handling citations, responding to peer reviews, managing coauthorships, and more.

In an accessible, informal tone, The Scientist's Guide to Writing explains essential techniques that students, postdoctoral researchers, and early-career scientists need to write more clearly, efficiently, and easily.

  • Emphasizes writing as a process, not just a product
  • Encourages habits that improve motivation and productivity
  • Explains the structure of the scientific paper and the function of each part
  • Provides detailed guidance on submission, review, revision, and publication
  • Addresses issues related to coauthorship, English as a second language, and more

Product Description:
Most people who do a PhD and postdoctoral work in the biomedical sciences do not end up as principal investigators in a research lab. Despite this, graduate courses and postdoctoral fellowships tend to focus almost exclusively on training for bench science rather than other career paths. This book plugs the gap by providing information about a wide variety of different careers that individuals with a PhD in the life sciences can pursue.

Covering everything from science writing and grant administration to patent law and management consultancy, the book includes firsthand accounts of what the jobs are like, the skills required, and advice on how to get a foot in the door. It will be a valuable resource for all life scientists considering their career options and laboratory heads who want to give career advice to their students and postdocs.

Creating Cures: A Young Scientist's First Job in American Biopharma

By Kieran Geoghegan

Released: 2019-08-13
Kindle Edition

Creating Cures: A Young Scientist s First Job in American Biopharma
 
Product Description:
This is how you become a medicine maker, a research scientist in the exciting, turbulent biopharmaceutical industry (or biopharma, for short). Learn how great science and great business intertwine as teams of scientists race to turn new discoveries into the medicines of tomorrow and beyond. Understand the roles of government regulators and the central importance of patents. Find out what it’s like to interview for the job of a lifetime, perhaps your best chance to live the life of a scientist. What do employers look for in a young researcher? How will your own work fit into the urgent, complex multi-tasking effort of a research department? Will you, should you, move up the ranks to join management, or stay with the hands-on science that you love? With a light touch and an eye for the ironic, industry veteran Kieran Geoghegan blends deep affection for the power and beauty of science with realistic guidance on the professional challenges of making your career in biopharma. This is an industry in which every company, be it a tiny start-up or a Fortune 100 giant, operates under fierce pressure to succeed or die. Innovation, pricing pressures and political broadsides shake the walls while dedicated researchers focus on their deeply humane task of bringing new medicines to patients. Joining them can open up a career full of learning, challenge and satisfaction. But do not set your course for biopharma without taking careful bearings. The competition for places and success is severe and the waters can be choppy. Creating Cures: A Young Scientist's First Job in American Biopharma shows you both sides of the story, the rough and the smooth, the joys and the risks.

Find Your Path: Unconventional Lessons from 36 Leading Scientists and Engineers (The MIT Press)

By Daniel Goodman

The MIT Press
Released: 2019-11-08

Find Your Path: Unconventional Lessons from 36 Leading Scientists and Engineers (The MIT Press)
 
Product Description:

Scientists offer personal accounts of the challenges, struggles, successes, U-turns, and satisfactions encountered in their careers in industry, academia, and government.

This insightful book offers essential life and career lessons for newly minted STEM graduates and those seeking a career change. Thirty-six leading scientists and engineers (including two Nobel Prize winners) describe the challenges, struggles, successes, satisfactions, and U-turns encountered as they established their careers. Readers learn that there are professional possibilities beyond academia, as contributors describe the paths that took them into private industry and government as well as to college and university campuses. They discuss their varying preferences for solitary research or collaborative teamwork; their attempts to achieve work-life balance; and unplanned changes in direction that resulted in a more satisfying career. Women describe confronting overt sexism and institutional gender bias; scientists of color describe the experience of being outsiders in their field.

One scientist moves from startup to startup, enjoying a career of serial challenges; another spends decades at one university; another has worked in academia, industry, and government. Some followed in the footsteps of parents; others were the first in their family to go to college. Many have changed fields, switched subjects, or left established organizations for something new. Taken together, these essays make it clear that there is not one path to a profession in science, but many.

Product Description:

America's National Parks are protected places and have become living museums for as many as 270 million visitors per year! In addition, researchers are able to perform long term studies of a wide number of subjects from salamanders the size of thumbnails to gigantic geothermal geysers. These parks are natural laboratories for scientists. Did you know that Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming sits on top of an active (and very large) volcano? This volcano is monitored and studied on a daily basis, not only as a means of protection (though it seems a long way off from erupting) but also as a way of understanding how the environment changes and influences what goes on deep underground.

     The scientists profiled in The Park Scientists also study grizzly bears in Yellowstone, the majestic Sagauro catci in Arizona, and fireflies in Tennessee -- and suggest many ways for the average reader of any age to help out. The emphasis here is twofold: the great science that happens everyday in these important, protected spaces, and the fact that you can visit all of them and participate in the research.

     It's backyard science at its biggest and best in this resourceful addition to the Scientists in the Field series!
