Fornew readers and those who request to be “好友 good friends” please read my 公告first.

Over thepast five years, I have written various blog articles about academic careerbased on my own 51 years of experience both in the US and in China. These aresign posts on the academic highway. However, I realized that linking these signposts together in a coherent sequence could provide a complete road map frombeginning graduate student to final retirement. I do this here for the benefitof scholars,  young, midlife, and oldalike.

1.   In the graduate school. Here you are dealing with questions of applying foradmission, finding the right advisor/mentor, on how to do research, learning tobe an independent researcher. Following are the relevant blog articles.
