Statement of Purpose

This group exists simply because many of us find it useful to discuss the challenges involved in pursuing a scientific career. We have a lunch meeting once a month where we have discussed such topics as:

  • How to obtain fellowships
  • How to find an advisor
  • How to take advantage of conferences
  • Possible careers paths after graduate school:
    • Physics education
    • National Labs
  • Mentoring and Outreach within the university and in San Diego
This website is an effort to archive the discussion and advice that takes place at our meetings for anyone to take advantage of, and to encourage more women to choose UCSD for Physics grad school.
