From Start to Finish: A Practical Guide to Becoming a Scientist in Psychology and Neuroscience helps readers navigate the scientific disciplines of psychology and neuroscience. The text provides practical, real-world advice to a wide range of scientists and those who aspire to be–from undergraduate students mapping out initial career paths to established professors. The book helps early-career scientists develop a plan to pursue a meaningful and fulfilling career, discussing the relative strengths of different types of career outcomes, and carries them through tenure.

Readers learn practical tips for applying to graduate school, selecting a graduate mentor, and using post-doctoral education as a launching pad for a career. The text outlines how to get a teaching appointment or a research-based position at a university, and how to secure tenure in either setting. Readers learn how to apply for a grant, run a lab without graduate students, and establish a healthy work-life balance. Each chapter features an interview with a subject matter expert to provide a fresh perspective and additional advice.

Designed to help readers better understand the various career paths available to them, From Start to Finish is a valuable resource for anyone interested in developing and pursuing a career in the scientific fields of psychology and neuroscience.
