Great Supervisor Week Mentions
Installment #2 for #GreatSupervisor wk:
@BrainDynLab (Dr. Christine Tippet): Christine is on my supervisory committee.
“She makes u feel good about yourself. That's her superpower,” her student said.
She isn’t wrong.
I am midst-applying for a #grant w/ Christine I was anticipating #Reviewer3 vibes on my 1st draft, but she responded this way: "Thanks very much for all your hard work. I hope we get this." "I'm just about done edits on your #proposal, which I will send along momentarily. Don't be alarmed by all the red ink. It's just to make things a bit clearer and flow a bit better. You've done a great job!" "Very well done!" Now, I’m well aware I have SOOOO much to improve on. I appreciate Christine bec she didn’t focus solely on the bad. She is a wonderful reminder to me that it is possible to be kind to your trainees even when you set your expectations high. Many ppl say u shouldn’t work w/ #JuniorFaculty (read: pre-#tenure): You won’t get good #supervision, they’re less well-known & experienced. Some of these *might* be true (experience is huge in #academia), but “experience” comes in diff ways. Pretenured #faculty were YOU not too long ago. They know how emotionally draining & how scary it is to put yourself out there. They know the job market. They know the systemic biases against junior #scholars. Work w/ them. You can both grow together. #ECR @Mid_Career_PI @NewPI_Slack #AcademicTwitter #ProfLife #PhDchat #PhDlife #PhD #WomenInSTEM #WomenInMedicine 6/6
