Sharing Your Experiences: The Chemistry & Postdoctoral Scholars Blog

A couple of years ago we started a small blog, with a simple idea: Let's create an informal platform where we can share resources, stories, and experiences. Although the blog has grown, we would like to hear from additional voices. If you have something you would be willing to share, or if you are the author of a blog about the chemistry graduate school or postdoc experience that you would like us to promote, please write to us at

See the latest blog post "Things I wish I had known four years ago: Reflections on choosing and making the most out of your advisor selection"
