Hey Twitter, remember the Young Post-Doc Precarious?
You can now buy The Young Post-Doc Precarious on a mug, or as a sticker, or on a t-shirt. (Heck, if you want it on a duvet cover, give me a shout and I'll make you a higher-res version! 😂)…

Are you a post-doc precarious? Cheer yourself up with a cushion or a travel mug or a postcard!

Are you a PhD supervisor whose student is about to graduate? Give them a glimpse at their future!

There's even a white version to go on black t-shirts!

I am the very model of a young post-doc precarious:
I have a PhD and my accomplishments are various.
I've publications numerous, a contract for a monograph;
Today's writing output has been a single tortured paragraph.
I fill out applications for jobs temp'rary and permanent:
Will your first-rate department be my unemployment's terminant?
I do impact, outreach, I am a public intellectual,
My tweets and rants and diatribes are passionate, effectual.
In lack of tenure-track professorships like in days halcyon,
I'll get my research funded - yay! - on ko-fi and on patreon!
In short I'm unemployed but my accomplishments are various:
I am the very model of a young post-doc precarious.

People have asked me how write how I outline a paper. I use a couple of methods. First one is asking questions.
Note how the questions I ask may end up becoming sections of my chapter. Also, as I assemble my paper, I write memorandums for each one of these questions.… this process makes it easier for me to build the entire paper.
Another method is using the IMRAD approach (Introduction, Materials/Methods, Results, and Discussion) - this PDF has helpful suggestions on what goes in each section… Even when I do empirically-based papers, I find IMRAD somewhat hard to follow closely.
