Today’s post is from Prof Faye Hicks. Faye is a hydrotechincal (civil) engineer with 30+ years of experience and the Author of “The Art of Scientific Writing”, a blog where she provides advice for university students in Science and Engineering. I hope you’ll like her post as much as I did. Enjoy!
I’ve noticed recently that a lot of people make their way to this site while searching for advice on how to write to a potential PhD supervisor. I’ve also noticed that many of the letters/emails that I personally get on this topic are actually irrelevant to me, poorly written, or both. So, I figured it might be a good idea to put a little bit of advice out there to help students who are trying to get into a PhD (or Masters) program. All the same principles also apply for those seeking post-doc supervisors.
