Haven't seen you in a while. I remember you. Congratulations on getting your phd! If you have been offered a job, it would be a good idea to accept the offer and start to build your career. Do you have to work closely with your ex-supervisor again? You could join the workers' Union at your institution; some people refuse to pay the monthly subscription thinking they would never get in trouble or never need to use the Union; the monthly subscription is worth paying for as they will definitely help you if he tries to do anything again. Keep a record of everything as they cannot act for you without evidence.
I am so sorry to hear about your phd experiences. I did not feel the same during my phd; I did not have any fears or anxiety from my phd; at most it was the stress of having to go through a steep learning curve and having to cope with life whilst doing a phd.
I am supposed to be one of those "lucky" PhD-ers who got into academia. But now, being in academia, I am anxious, stressed and depressed almost everyday.
My advice would be to keep looking at job adverts. Because some employers will still take you to teach something different from what your certificates show :)
I have seen many examples already.
You have creativity, business acumen, bring all those qualities with you. Keep your options open.
I am so sorry about your phd viva. I think you could still be in shock. Give yourself time to recover, and then start working on the revisions. It will get easier the second time. I'm sure your supervisors will also want you to pass. Get them involved in your revisions, schedule more meetings with them, set manageable deadlines to meet up or show them your work.
can someone help to explain this to me --
this sentence "its worth noting that the association between head circumference and 3MS in the current study remained statistically significant after adjustment for IQ"
"after adjustment, head circumference was not statistically significant with all cognitive outcomes"
What does "adjustment" here mean? did they change the values or??
Yes you can ask your second coder to recode. How did u base your calculations, was it for the 15% only? I had two second coders who looked at all mydata and then I removed outliers and got higher kappa values. Maybe someone else can give better suggestions
hi gary you have good career prospects but where you are, anything can happen. I see people with permanent jobs being made redundant. If you do that phd, assuming everything is ok, by the time you defend, you'll still only be 29 or 30 at the most and that is plenty of time for career. You have plenty of time and lots of battery! the phd is a good idea.
