Subject: A survival guide for a PhD student

When you graduate, you will not have a job in academia.” This is the message that I received upon entering the University of Minnesota in 1994. This rings true in today's world, perhaps more so. Here I will share stories about how I survived grad school, fierce competition in the job market, and ended up being a tenured faculty at the university, while making some cool scientific discoveries along the way in X ray astronomy, the "little Homunculus" of eta Car, and development of a space based observatory. From this “unusual” journal club talk, I hope that grad students can pick up some tips to survive – or better yet, “to thrive” – in whatever they choose to do with their lives after grad school.
