On Ph.D Education and Research (4)- MIT vs. Harvard

 

 

 

I spent almost my entire adult life (9/1950-2/1955, 2/1958-date) in Cambridge, MA and

 

received my B.S. and M.S. from MIT, and Ph.D from Harvard and taught at the latter

 

since 1961. The two schools are separated by less than two miles from each other.

 

Students from each school can take course from the other school and receive credit for

 

work done in the other school. In science and technology, the two schools have many

 

cooperative degree programs and colleagues often work together (NOTE: in the medical

 

science and technology they have a joint Ph.D and M.D. program and its most illustrious

 

graduate is David Ho, 何大一, the inventor of AIDS cocktail medicine, and foreign

 

member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering)

纳米世界的追梦人———记元培计划03级本科生范犇
 
   “我的心里一直有一个纳米的梦。”北京大学元培计划03级本科生范犇这样描述自己的梦想。
  正是这个纳米梦,推动着他在纳米的世界里不断探索,最终发明了“控制转移碳纳米管阵列技术”,被哈佛大学查尔斯·烈波教授录取为博士研究生,并且获得了全额奖学金。
  最初的梦想
  高中时的范犇就对化学很感兴趣。一本科普书———《纳米世纪》使他萌发了最初的纳米梦。
  刚读高一时,范犇就被选为化学奥赛的种子选手,备战2003年全国化学奥赛。他自学了有机化学、无机化学等大学化学基础课程。经过努力,范犇在竞赛中获得一等奖(第4名),北大和清华同时向他伸出橄榄枝,范犇最

思维的乐趣。感谢王鸿飞博客让我第一次看到这个概念,它一针见血的让我明白自己最近一阵狂热,痴迷,甚至于癫狂的原因。引文如下:
 
第六,是提供思维的乐趣。如果知识和思维没有乐趣,那么我们就不要去追求她。如果一个人不知道追求知识和思维的乐趣其实在绝大多数时候都是better than sex,那就让他在生活中去多买伟哥,只追求sex吧。
猛男子注:better than sex(比性还爽),sex(性)。
 
说实话,昨天我突然意识到最近几天的狂热有点太过了。先开始是有点担心自己是不是已经做出了让人看来奇怪的行为,说出了些不着边际的话。接着又担心这种热情会不会很快褪去,如一场闹剧一般匆匆收场。最后才开始思考,是甚么让我这般狂热。的的确确是思维的乐趣,的的确确是“better than sex”。
 
思维的本身是有乐趣的,而不仅仅是思维的结果。我是一个希望把所有事都想透的人,对一切涉及事物本质的理论有着无比的兴趣。看透一件事的结果绝对是无与伦比的美妙。看透了一个游戏最本质的内在规则,无疑能使你永远处于最有利的位置,轻而易举的取胜。就好比对着

HOW TO DO RESEARCH 3 – PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH

 

I am most gratified by the response to my two blog articles 'How to Do Research?' and

'More on How to Do Research'. In the space of one week a total of 1500+ persons have

read the articles. In the spirit of practicing what I preach, but at the risk of self-promotion,

let me give you an example on how my recommendation on 'finding a good research

topic' benefited myself. For convenience I repeated the recommendation here:

 

“GO FIND A REAL WORLD PROBLEM THAT A GROUP OF PEOPLE IS EAGER

TO SOLVE, THAT HAPPENS TO INTEREST YOU FOR WHATEVER REASON,

AND THAT YOU DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT. MAKE A COMMITMENT TO

SOLVE IT BUT NOT A COMMITMENT TO USE TOOLS WITH WHICH YOU

HAPPEN TO BE FAMILIAR' (But you should really read this rule in the context of the

whole article)

How to do research? And Related Issues of Ph.D Education

 

 

 

'Can you tell me how to do research?',

 

'Please tell me what topics should I pick to do my ph.d.thesis? '

 

are two questions I periodically receive from young researchers and students in China.

 

There are two difficulties associated with answering these two questions.

 

1. The first question is open-ended. To answer it honestly and accurately will require several hours of explanation. In fact, the process could take several years of face-to-face interaction between an advisor and a ph.d student. This is really what a ph.d. education involves. It is not the number of courses taken or the number of papers published. But something about the quality of and taste in research. I'll have more to say about this point below in connection with trying to answer this first question here .

我的归国历程
  ——在“2004年第五届北美留交会”上的演讲

周怀北

  女士们、先生们:

  早上好!今天我很荣幸有机会在这里给大家讲述自己回国创业两年半的经历
和感受。

  我是2002年4月份选择回国创业的,而且是选择全家一起回国,来到中国武
汉大学当教授。回国之前,我把房子和车子都卖掉了。我的夫人很抱怨,因为我
当时在一个非常不错的公司工作,有很多股票,公司的很多人后来发了财。但是
什么事情都不是十全十美的,所谓有得有失。在中国发展的过程中,机遇很重要,
时间很重要。在这两年多的时间里, 在学校领导和省市有关领导的支持下,我
创办了一个高科技研发中心和省留学人员创业园, 目前还带了二十多个硕士和
博士研究生,从事无线通讯和软件工程方面的研发。

  我在1990年,也就是14年前,到美国学习、工作的。出国10年之后,我第一

Except for three years of full time work in industry I have spent my live in academia in  the US.  Even though I had only worked for one university in my entire career, I did spent semester long sabbaticals in residence in UC Berkeley, U.Texas Autstin, Imperial College in London and short visits to countless scholarly institutions around the world. Thus, it might be worthwhile for me to describe for my Chinese sciencenet readers my 40+ years experience and contrast them wherever appropriate with practices in China. Of course, the types of universities in the US are enormous. I am talking primarily of research universities. Excellent purely teaching college, such Williams College in Wiliamstown, Massachusetts, Swarthmore College in Philadelphia, Pa, etc. are not included. Lastly, what I describe below are my personal experiences and should not be construed a

一直没开写,之前是太忙,现在又是太闲。昨天组会上听谢老师讲的时候,冲动终于爆发,不可抑制。可能源自我对谢老师学术上的欣赏吧,突然感觉心里的那团火又重新燃烧了起来。我意识到应该用文字记录下一个最普通的人对人类最高成就的冲击。她是我走的一条路,记录着点点滴滴心得感受;她又是我精神的一条线,引领着我鞭笞着我坚持在这条最困难的路上走下去。无论结果如何,想与这些文字一起成长,从幼稚懵懂到将来的成熟睿智,直到斯德哥尔摩那个神圣如信仰的领奖台。。。
 
摘要: 这是个大男人blog。从身边人的blog中,多看到的是一些精致细腻的小女人文章。鉴于我骨子里大量的女人性格,特此提醒自己:只用大字,只记大事。大字无婉约无矫情,大事非小事非情事。
关键词: 男人,大器,粗犷,哈佛,科研,远见,效率,责任,真理,诺奖。。。
