How to choose your topic

  • As many already know, studying for the physics GRE and getting accepted into a graduate program is not the final hurdle in your physics career.
  • There are many issues current physics graduate students face such as studying for their qualifier, deciding upon a field of research, choosing an advisor, being an effective teaching assistant, trying to have a social life, navigating department politics, dealing with stress, utilizing financial aid, etc.

How to choose your topic

I stumbled on this and thought it was a nice read. It's on a Molecular Cell publication but it discusses the topic of choosing scientific problems in a way that is applicable to most of the sciences
