Feminist studies programs exist, and they are considered academic (at least by some). However, there is a growing number of people that don’t accept feminists ideologies. Are there are any masters or doctorate programs that specialize in responding to modern feminism by rejecting it? Or at the very least, I’m certain there are individuals that do this sort of thing. I’m looking for a big list of people and universities that do this sort of research, as I am interested in studying it.

I’m 17 and will be joining a UG physics program soon. I’ve done a lot of DIY projects over the years, ranging from electric arc speakers to air-quality and climate-control systems. Most of my projects involved Arduinos.

I’ve been thinking of conducting a five-year study on air quality and climate change using ten sensors (gas, dust, temperature, and humidity) and an Arduino. I will collect data for five years and then conclude my findings.

  • Can I publish such research anywhere?
  • Do these type of projects have any value or are they a waste of time?

I initially posted this on workplace.se, but was told to come here. Please let me know if this is the wrong place for this kind of stuff, and I will take it down.

To preface, I imagine this might come off really immature, given that I am 30 years old. I joined a university as a PostDoc after completing my PhD 6 months ago. I am yet to publish anything after joining here, I have been feeling burnt out and disorganised. I was planning to join the industry within a year of joining (It was initially envisaged as a one year contract, but it got extended for 3 more years, due to my professor getting new funding, but that’s beside the point). My professor is very understanding, and he is very motivated. His team is getting into theoretical machine learning and the papers he published are already making strides and catching everyone’s attention.

I, on the other hand, am just starting in the area of datascience. I am an average coder, and my math skills are also pretty average. If I work hard I can crank out some papers ( that is how I finished my PhD), but lately I have been feeling very unmotivated and distracted. I have a few family problems (I am gay from a conservative family), but that is no excuse for not being motivated, I know. I tried out to be a Datascientist at an internet advertising firm but was rejected after the on-site interview following a Skype interview, the reason being that my practical skills were not on par (I did a mainly theoretical PhD, and my knowledge of practical algos is lacking).

On the other hand my colleague who is a PhD student under my prof (only 25!) has been publishing and his works on machine learning (also theoretical), have been attracting researchers from companies like Facebook and Google, at a recent conference. As for me, the very idea of going to a conference again gives me shudders.

I am out of ideas and out of steam to be honest, but I really want to create pathbreaking research and join a top company to start my career as a datascientist. But I feel lost.

To have a good CV for an eventual job hunt, I need at least one good publication during this year of my post-doc but all the work I have done have led me nowhere to be honest.

For context: I did my PhD on random graph analysis.

I really need some guidance. I know I should have figured this out already given I am a 30 year old graduate, but unfortunately I haven’t. I can blame that on my depression, but how long can I do that for? Anybody who has been in the same situation as me? Any input is welcome.

Recently I was offered a PhD position at University X in Switzerland and I accepted it. I had been giving several interviews at several universities and this was the only decent offer I had in months, so I had no option but to accept it, and I liked it as well. Two weeks after accepting the offer and they having started the work visa process, I received a PhD offer from university Y (a much superior university and a great project), also in Switzerland! Now I plan to reject the PhD offer from university X, but the issue is its been three weeks since they started by process for work visa (I am an international candidate). Will my rejecting it at this stage affect my work visa situation at University Y? The offer I have from university Y is amazing and I really don’t want to lose out on it because of legal issues. Can someone kindly advise me on it?

Sometimes, after I publish a working paper in arXiv or a refereed paper in a conference, I change the title of the paper. This can be due to several reasons:

  • A reviewer in a journal I submitted to suggested a better title;
  • I found out a different paper with a similar title and decided to change my own paper’s title to prevent confusion;
  • I submitted to a double-blind venue and wanted to reduce the chances that the reviewers find my working paper.

My concern is that this title-change might confuse search engines such as Google Scholar. Nowadays, automatic citation counts are counted towards promotion so this consideration should be taken into account.

My question is: how can I change the title of a paper, in a way that will not harm its automatic citation counts?

I recently finished taking an undergraduate class and I enjoyed it. I was thinking of emailing the prof and saying this, but I don’t know if it’s appropriate or not, for a few reasons…

1) I would have already said this in the class evaluations, which the prof will read.

2) More importantly, I recently received my final grade and it was good (A to A+). If I email now, it might come off as an implied “thank you” for giving me a good mark, even though I mean nothing of the sort.

My question is whether or not such an email would be appropriate. In the email, I would also express gratitude for the extra effort the prof put in (as they gave me resources to study the subject deeper on my own).

Alice is teaching a class and one student is clearly not understanding the material very well. Should she approach the student (e.g. ask to meet after class, write an email, or during class itself if it’s not a lecture) and offer to help?

The argument for “yes” is that although the student might not ask for help, he or she wants to pass the course, so the teacher’s intervention is appropriate. Some students also come from conservative cultures, are afraid to be seen as a fool, or are simply shy.

The argument for “no” is that it’s possible the student wants to puzzle it out himself/herself. Instead, Alice should just make herself available for consultation. If the student does not make use of all the resources at his or her disposal, it’s not her fault.

Is there any evidence that one style of teaching or the other is preferable?

I am currently a Post-doc student in computer science. Last year I did my PhD from some university. I have published one research paper during my PhD with my research supervisor. I am trying to work on that paper I mean I have got something and I thing It is going to be the incremental of the previous research paper. I am in a confusion, DO I need to take permission that he is okay or not with my new paper

Question :Do I need to take permission from my past supervisor?

I have a question. I graduated from an UK university with 2.2 (53), and now I am thinking to apply for Ph.D. My study area is Drama Studies. I am an international student and I have funding. I am not going to apply for any funding. I don’t have any work experience.

Do you think is it possible to get a Ph.D. offer from any university?
Thank you for your answers.

In my department, I have been assigned to find geographical variation and self-citation in the citing articles of some research papers. On Google Scholar, manually it is very difficult to check citations for every research paper. For example, one of the research article has 650 citations, it would be a laborious task to check every citing article for geographical variation and self-citations.

Is there any tool which classifies citing articles based on their geographical variation and self-citations?
