Thread: Lazy PhD advisor destroyed my experience of doing research and PhD

My situation is similar to TheEngineers. I wouldn't say my second sup is bad, but they definitely aren't as available and interested as my main (less high profile) one. If you don't have a second supervisor, could you request for one? It could be done in a tactful way by justifying it by a research related issue (e.g., want to develop more in X direction).

I'm 30 and in my 2nd year of a PhD. Would I do it at 40 if I hadn't already started? Definitely!

Of course it also depends on your commitments, finance etc. But if you want to do a PhD, and are in a position to do one... go for it!

Thanks again! I had got to the point where I was starting to second guess myself! I have justified why I am sticking to preliminary analysis then main analysis (with no covariates) in my response to their comments. I may actually include the null results tests for them to see as well - hadn't thought of that.

Thanks!

Agree with ToL. I've heard of bad behaviour from supervisors but desperately try to make it work if you can (because you're so far in already why throw it away). Good luck.

When I submitted a paper in April it took till July for them to get back to me with comments. I don't know when they assigned reviewers to it - but I hadn't assumed it would be immediately since it took so long for them to get the it back to me...

By the sounds of it I would definitely try find the job I want (and then come back to PhD later). Maybe you could talk to more people - other agencies, those in the field - get a feel for the job climate and hopefully attend some interviews. This will all inform you more about the realities.

Hmm, sadly can't access it - think it is because it was accepted so recently. Have you tried requesting it directly from the author? I see he (and his paper reference) are on ResearchGate:

Hi teegs90 -

Thanks for the response - it helps a lot!

After thinking TOO much about it I've even began to question why I am looking for effects of potential other IVs/covariates at all, given that it is a counterbalanced, within-subjects experimental design, which controls for effects of factors such as order of condition, age, and gender simply by having the same participants undergo both conditions and counterbalancing.

I guess it is to simply see IF anything is going in the data that might otherwise go undetected... like if the effect of the experimental condition on males or older participants is greater (for example)... rather than for purposes of trying to control other factors.

Would you agree with this? (in principle)

Thanks!
T.

Hi all

Both of my reviewers' have issues with my statistical approach (although they don't really state why - a preference thing possibly)... and both suggest (different) alternatives. The things is... I don't have a problem with what I've done, and (maybe more importantly?!) a recently published article in the same journal, doing a very similar investigation, also does the same thing as I do... (to be more specific I have done a set of preliminary analyses and then on the basis of no significant effects there excluded a number of potential confounding variables from my main analyses - both reviewers are questioning this and want to see more variables in the main analysis - but I see no need and don't want to underpower my main analyses by including loads of variables unnecessarily).

Could I refer to that other paper (that does the same thing I've done) in my response to the reviewers' comments?!

Thanks
Tudor. (whose head is a mess after messing around with different stats all day)

An apology goes a long way - even if the other person was in the wrong also.

Hi all

Just to let you know I took your advice on board and it is going fine. It was really helpful that the tutor actually saw me briefly before the seminar and filled me in on what was appropriate for the student - e.g. what situations speaking in front of others was OK. The seminar went well and the student was able to participate fully!

Cheers
T.

Hello asl2016!

I think it would be fine either way (to contact them or not).

An advantage of contacting them first is that you could explain your situation before the interview, as you've said.

Also, it would be good to include that paper on your CV or statement for the application - so that they notice your cosupervisor's name (if he isn't dealing directly with the applications).

Best of luck
