I'm bewildered (not trying to be you or anything, Bewildered, if you're still about somewhere)... But all's well that ends well! : D

Yeh I don't really get it either... It's some preliminary analyses I'm doing for someone else and they've kind of directed me as to what they wanted me to do and then asked me to present it. I've checked with them for clarification now. Maybe they didn't mean separate models for each predictor but rather all the predictors in the same model (for each outcome). That would make more sense.

Good advice re what is normally in a paper. Thanks : )

Hi there quants folks

Is there a way to present loads of regression model results on a couple of slides? I'm talking about 25 or so... How would you normally do this?

Thanks
Tudor

Not to be controversial but if it is in a different subject that you love and you can get funding, then why not apply for a second PhD? However, I would be upfront with any potential advisor about your existing PhD. I'm not sure whether you'd get funding easily etc.

On the other hand though, if the subject is closely related then the wiser path might be to look for a postdoc as people have suggested. Or even an RA position where you can possibly be given a different role later. Broaden the scope of your search and branch out to increase your options... A PhD and six papers sounds amazing...

Yes, do consult handbook and course director for clarification about the grades. I think it is unlikely that there would be a mistake on the transcript but you never know. It is definitely worth checking it out, as such things do happen. And that is a huge difference.

Are you talking about applying for funding or being accepted to self fund? If the former, then the competition will be extremely high. I know one lady whose grades were quite low, but who had experience in the field, as (it sounds) you do. She ended up getting funding for part of her PhD and working as a teaching assistant (and now part time lecturer) to pay for the rest of her PhD/living costs. This is a Russell Group Uni, so there are ways of doing these things if you can be flexible / make sacrifices.

I would recommend that you save each version (e.g., draft 1, draft 1 plus comments, draft 2). But work on the latest version (separately saved). It makes it easier to see what you've addressed from the comments etc. Also useful for the supervisors if you are sending it back to them for more feedback afterwards, as they may have forgotten their original comments. I normally put a reply to any comments, e.g., "addressed".

Would you need a doctorate for that in your chosen area?

Hello! Do you have a longer term goal? What might you want to be doing in say 5 years time? Thinking about this might help you in deciding your next steps. You might need a PhD for instance. If you simply like being a student and want to avoid the world of work then that is different. A PhD will probably put you off studying for life (seriously!!!), whereas another masters would buy you and enjoyable extra year or two! I'm really tired so probably ignore the last few sentences here! I think the opening part makes sense though.
Best!

There are some practical things you can do to, such as setting goals or even going to a writing workshop. What kind of thing has worked for you in the past?

Hello,
Does anyone know anything about getting a job / postdoc in the US?
Someone I was chatting to suggested that getting a postdoc and applying for a VISA from the UK etc on that basis would be much easier than trying to do the same for a typical (but research based) job - e.g., lab manager (that doesn't necessary require a PhD).
I didn't have a chance to ask them why this would be. Does anyone know anything about this sort of thing?
Thanks
Tudor

Quote From Pursue:
TreeofLife and all, just to update you...managed to present my proposal today afternoon my time and apparently A, was very bad, spiting me and even lied about something that he said it exists when it doesn't exist. A senses am now more inclined to B in direction and thus still want control of the work. During the presentation, B stood for me through it all. B has gone the extra mile making personal arrangements with regards to next steps.

I am not sure if I should continue with A as the main or I formally ask for reshuffle....thinking about the futurešŸ˜„


B is on your side. Do whatever pleases B (within reason of course) as they have your back! Speak minimally to A. You can follow B's lead without it being formally agreed on. Good luck!

Congrats Iwan. It takes courage to do stuff like this. Great that you were reassured that you shouldn't have to pay - was that verbal or in writing? All best.
