It’s better to be stocked by a mentor than to stare at you 24 hours a day! Going full of enthusiasm for postgraduate studies and vowing to include the CNS in the bag, I am afraid that this is the original intention of every researcher. Surprisingly, the skinny reality decisively extinguishes your ambitions-you have been trained by your tutor in the “herding style”, and then waiting for your tutor’s guidance is like waiting for a ship at the airport. Looking at the same period when entering other research groups, under the careful guidance of the instructor, the opening of the topic and the experiment have been on the right track, and the scientific research goal is running non-stop; but your instructor is a dragon without seeing the head, and it is almost difficult on weekdays. When you have the opportunity to meet, you will handle all the research matters yourself. It is simply an alternative portrayal of “the master leads the door, and the practice depends on the individual.” To be honest, this is already allowing students to conduct independent research. So, also at the beginning of scientific research, others are learning, and you are “starting a business”. As the saying goes, stocking is raising an entrepreneurial spirit. It is true that some graduate students with strong scientific research ability will feel like a fish in water-not only adapt well, but also grow quickly. But this is too painful for most people. After all, as we all know, starting from scratch without any guidance is difficult. When you first come into contact with scientific research, you don’t even know where the threshold is, let alone salvaging the so-called scientific research inspiration in the vast literature. You can only wander in situ and step on the pit in vain. How can you not be lost in your heart? Because of this at a loss, the seemingly long postgraduate/Ph.D. study time was wasted in the idle stocking life day by day. In the end, Yanbi became a certainty in nothing. child. But there are always more ideas than problems. Some small partners who don’t want to give up on themselves just suffocated a mouthful of blood and finally managed to get through the project on their own. It was not until before the defense was asked by the instructor: “What are you doing?” I can’t feel wronged any more! It’s no wonder that these students are full of complaints. However, “the complaint is too much to guard against heartbreaking, and it is better to keep an eye on it.” For all things, the person who needs the most responsibility is always oneself, and the next is others, and one’s own way is still to go by oneself. Instead of feeling the road is difficult, it is better to set off immediately. As the saying goes: You will win if you love to work hard. Since you have been released by your instructor, if you want to publish SCI and graduate successfully, you can only rely on yourself to work hard, so that you can truly stand on the ground. Two rules and here is a ready-made “survival” guide for the stocked people to refer to! First of all, there are two rules to keep in mind: 1. You’d better determine your research project as early as possible. Generally speaking, the tutor who stocks students has shifted their focus from academic research to administrative posts, so that they have no time to manage students. , So the students who are stocked will be more free to live and study. Perhaps the instructor can spare time to guide you, and to a certain extent help you solve the problems in the graduate training process and experimental funding, but he will most likely not tell you what to do in the next research-these things are completely determined To yourself. Since you still need to fight for your degree, students who have been stocked must not be too comfortable. They must think clearly about what they are going to do, and discuss with the tutor to determine the research direction. Then you can make a detailed experiment plan based on your own ideas and implement it step by step, while continuing to make progress in reflection. If you need guidance during this period, please contact your mentor in time-this is their duty. 2. The biggest difference between master and doctoral students and undergraduates is their ability to deal with unknown things independently. The current Internet era is not only the era with the lowest learning costs, but also the era with the most convenient access to information. If you have any questions in scientific research, search engines can help you, and what you have to do is to screen and process the information, and then output it. In addition, to maximize one’s own initiative, one needs to be more active and proactive in seeking help. For example, if you plan to learn the knowledge and skills of others, you must take the initiative to find him/her because they will not take the initiative to come to you. After all, as a student, you have to constantly jump out of your comfort zone and actively grow. When the surrounding environment cannot satisfy you, you need to expand your own space and obtain corresponding resources. Seven Coupes If you want to implement this into specific details, you need to firmly grasp the following key points: 1. Use literature as the cornerstone to find research ideas! Generally, as a freshman, you mainly learn some basic knowledge (such as experimental skills, literature reading and retrieval) to achieve the purpose of having a preliminary to intermediate understanding of your research field. The focus is to concentrate on unlocking various knowledge and skills. Among them, literature retrieval and reading skills can be said to be particularly important. You can combine the existing research topics of the research group, read a lot of literature for one or two research directions, and grasp the scale of intensive reading and extensive reading, so that you can stand on the shoulders of predecessors to discover and solve problems. Usually read the review first, then read the treatise. By looking at the summary, you can know the basic knowledge and subject level in the research field, and understand the current major developments and trends; and by looking at the treatise, you can master various research experimental methods, common patterns and general routines. 2. Do a good job of time management and reasonably carry out scientific research. The time for masters and PhDs may seem to be very long, but in fact it passes by suddenly. Although the life of stocking is free, it should be remembered: there is only a thin line between self-discipline and indulgence, and if freedom is too much, it becomes indulgence. The mentor’s failure to supervise cannot be an excuse for lax indulgence in your studies, otherwise you will be blind when you graduate. Although the instructor does not find you regularly to learn about the research, you must be aware of the progress of the project yourself, and grasp the rhythm when you complete the experiment, write the article, and submit the paper. 3. Hold the thighs of the brother and sister tightly and avoid detours. In the laboratory, the brother and sister are the people closest to you except the tutor. As the most reliable friends on the front line of experiments in your field, they can give you a quick understanding of the research direction of the research group and the style of the instructor. The most important thing is that they may all have experienced the academic difficulties you are facing, which can help you avoid many detours. It can be said to be the most suitable guide for your scientific research. Can’t read the literature? ask! The instrument won’t work? learn! Can’t write articles? At this time, if you don’t hold the thighs of the senior brother and sister tightly, when should you wait? So cherish the opportunity that the seniors and sisters find you to work: firstly, learn the knowledge of the technology, and secondly, when you work independently, it can help you complete your work faster. It must be remembered that when you drink water, do not forget to dig the well. When you can stand alone, don’t forget to be grateful for their help when you are most difficult. 4. Learn to solve problems independently and improve your ability to be independent. Of course, you can’t rely too much on seniors and seniors. Their obligation is only to lead you to the beginning. As a stocked person, you have to be self-reliant, learn to take the initiative, be self-reliant, and be self-reliant. After all, you will become a big brother/sister. Try to retrieve the basic questions by yourself. When doing experiments, you must first understand the basic principles and operations, think more, and then ask the brothers and sisters if you really don’t understand. Otherwise, ask all questions. This kind of do not make any effort will make the laboratory brothers and sisters think you are lazy, and sometimes it will arouse the disgust of the brothers and sisters. 5. Take the initiative to communicate with the instructor, as the saying goes, the mountain is not me, I will come. Many students are prone to continue their undergraduate thinking when they are in graduate school, and they are afraid to communicate with their tutors, so that they will hide themselves when they meet a tutor. In fact, at the beginning of graduate school, you should talk frankly with your supervisor: what problems are encountered in scientific research, how to solve them, what needs to be done to meet the graduation requirements, and what is the next time arrangement so that you can There is a clear understanding of the scientific research career in the next few years. When you encounter a problem, don’t stand in place and wait, take the initiative to contact your tutor, and seize every opportunity to “familiarize yourself” with the tutor. For example, take the initiative to report progress (one to two times a week or once every half a month), take the initiative to show your experiment plan and experiment results to the teacher, to avoid deviation from the general direction. In view of the fact that “stocking” tutors are generally busy, pay attention to skills when communicating with tutors. For example, it is best to call or send a WeChat in advance to make an appointment (don’t delay too long, preferably within a week). ), summarize all your questions first, and then ask them clearly at one time. It is recommended that you can also record a sound to ensure that there is nothing wrong. 6. Use Internet resources to be a research surfer. The academic circle is really small. Because it is small and specialized, it is easy for researchers in the same direction to gather in an academic discussion group. So you can go online to find academic and subject-related public accounts, microblogs, exchange groups and other platforms, and then join them. Don’t be stingy about sharing your experience at this time, and don’t be shy about asking for advice. It is said that masters are among the people, and perhaps there are big cows in related fields in the group. Then through the boss’s advice to you, you can broaden your horizons, clear up your inner myths, and create a sense of enlightenment on scientific research. Why not do it? Therefore, students who have been stocked must understand the principle of “using all resources”. 7. Make career planning in advance and effectively use the time of graduate students to become a stocking stream. The biggest advantage is that after being stocked by a mentor, you will have a lot of time to think about life. Then, on the premise of ensuring that your studies can be completed, think more, do more, figure out what you want, and make good use of your free time. If you plan to work after graduation, then learn some practical skills that you think may be used in subsequent work. At the same time, you also need to pay attention to industry trends, conduct appropriate internships, and accumulate your resume in advance. If you plan to continue your studies, you should try to think more about the research ideas mentioned by your supervisor, learn more from the experience of your supervisor in scientific research, and learn to think independently. It is very important to have your own ideas. On this basis You must also accumulate more data, post more articles, and contact your favorite tutor in advance. In short, sharpen the knife and not cut the wood by mistake, plan ahead and prepare in advance. In short, when you are being restocked, please do a good job of psychological construction, remember to put all your emotions in your research and study, you must figure out what kind of person you want to be, and then do your best to adapt to the objective environment, even if the follow-up is true. You can’t read it anymore, and you can have a clear heart when you make the choice to give up.
