秋季学期 第一年

职责:

  • Required courses, determined in consultation with the 研究生院院长 in your program.
  • Participation in the 研究生 School Professional Skills and Responsible Conduct of Research Seminar (weekly, 必需的-下面有更详细的描述). The final assignment in this course is an electronic Poster Presentation of the 整体 research area under investigation in your anticipated research advisor’s laboratory and the probable research project that you will undertake as your research thesis. Note that this assignment requires that students have been aggressively pursuing the identification of their research mentor.
  • 研究导师的考虑:在一些项目中, students will enter 研究生学习 knowing who their research mentor will be. 在其他项目中, students will be expected to visit and meet with at least two and generally more thesis dissertation supervisors who are accepting new graduate students the Fall of their matriculation to learn about their work, 阅读他们的论文, 在与教员的讨论中, learn if their research program is a match for a student’s interests and preferred learning environment. 如果学生被已经确定的研究主管/导师接受, the student’s mentor will take responsibility for introducing the graduate student to other ongoing work in the discipline ongoing at Fisk and at our collaborating institutions.
  • In those programs where students are matched with a mentor/thesis advisor prior to matriculation, students will be expected to spend a defined minimum amount of time in that laboratory learning methods and reading relevant papers.
