General advice and support for graduate school and beyond:

  • Here are two good books (and 2) with tips for survival in grad school and beyond.
  • Here is a good article about how to get into math graduate school (despite what it says, if you haven’t published, it is OK, although it is a good idea to try research to see if you like it!).
  • If you’d like suggestions about mentoring and research development for grad. students and beyond, check here.
  • A Ph.D. is not enough is a guide to people beginning their career in Science.
  • The Math. Association of America has a teaching support program for new college and university profs, Project NEXT.
  • The Mathematical Research Communities is a research support program for graduate students and recent Ph. D.’s. It provides summer conferences in a range of fields and then provides longer term mentoring and support. I was involved with the 2009 Inverse Problems conference, and it was a blast!
  • Some Free and legal math books are here.
