10월 말에 제가 보낸 컨택 메일에 대한 답변입니다.
제 전공은 심리학(인지신경과학)이구요.
8분정도한테 제 CV포함해서 제 소개와 관심연구분야를 써서 메일 보냈는데
5분한테 답변이 왔습니다. 그중에서 가장 길고 친절하게 답변을 주신분인데요.
(대부분 3~5줄로 학생 뽑으니까 지원해봐라 또는 내년에 학생 안뽑는다 정도의 답변이거든요)
이분 답변은 긍정적으로 봐도 되겠죠?
참고로 저는 석사졸업후 병원 연구원으로 5년 정도 일했고 SCI 4편(제1저자 2편) 이 있습니다.
Thanks for your interest in our PhD programs and the research being
conducted in my laboratory. I am accepting new graduate students for next
year, so I would encourage you to apply. You can apply via two programs -
our PhD training program in the new Department of ***, although this site is under development) and our interdisciplinary training program in ***. The main difference is that for the *** program, you should have some idea of who you want to work with in advance (which it seems that you do since I would probably be the most relevant mentor for your interests), whereas for the *** program you
take 3 rotations to decide with whom you want to work, you have a primary
and a secondary mentor, and you can get a degree in any affiliated dept. So if a degree in *** is appropriate (with a ***') and you know you want to work with me, then the *** program is probably the right one to apply to. Of course you should take a look at both training programs and see which one is right for you.
In any event, on your application please mention that you were in contact
with me. Please feel free to contact me with any further questions closer to
the application deadline. You can find out the current activities of the lab
on my lab website ***.
Both programs are competitive, so a strong academic history, reference
letters, and prior research experience in *** are recommended.
