Academic Advice from Sanjiv Das

I came across the blog of Sanjiv Das after reading his 2007 paper published in Management Science (click here).

I find that his posting on “Need PhD?” provides some useful thoughts for early career researchers, prospective PhD students, and academics in general (click here).

I like the concluding remark: “If you “know” that you enjoy research and will love teaching, don’t mind working all the time, anytime, for small money but great personal satisfaction, then sign up now. But don’t do it because you think the lifestyle is great, or you believe some rosy picture of an academic in an ivory tower“.

Enjoy your reading!
