X 3, like others, yes to all. In fact I received my bachelors in pre-veterinary science and I’m currently attending school. Details I have yet to mention, paid my entire route thus far by myself AND I have a sever TBI as a result of a crash 5 years ago. Picture to prove it, on the lefty < < < <
And you RG? Do you have a degree to stand behind?

Has anyone here ever produced scientific work, applied for a grant, submitted a paper to a peer-reviewed journal? Have you ever read a paper, met a scientist, or even been to university? Or is this all based on the rubbish you’ve been told by the media? I don’t suppose I have to point out that there are few journalists capable of understanding the studies they report on, most don’t even attempt to accurately represent the findings, and many distort them deliberately.[/quote]
Like jakerz, yes to all. And I am one of the harshest critics of science and ‘experts’ BECAUSE I HAVE DONE ALL OF THESE THINGS. [/quote]
I didn’t know B.S. students were now writing research proposals for grants and receiving authorship credits in journals. Care to list your publications?
…what, ever heard of interns? You think most PhD’s are writing research proposals themselves and running the test themselves? No, they come up with ideas and have their interns/students do the hard work and slap their name on there as support or co-authors if they helped come up with the idea.
I, as well as five other students I work with have been in several journals because of our efforts on research papers. As well, we get paid to write the research proposals for the entire department…because we work in the research proposal office.[/quote]
Just curious, what field are you in?
It is a big deal, most of the people in the department are PhD students and Grad students, but they still hire interns that show “aptitude.”
Not talking about being the primary author.
My dissertation research is funded by NASA right now, and I know my advisor would have to have A LOT of faith in anyone other than a senior PhD candidate to write a proposal for something like that. I just don’t see a professor trusting some undergrad working in a research proposal office to write a grant proposal that could be the deciding factor in whether or not he gets tenure.[/quote]
Not saying my situation is the rule, I always figured it was the exception. Like I said we’re interns. We’re not first authors, however we do help with IRB and help with proposals where needed. And, we get credit in the journals, but definitely not as a first authors.
