Research and Lecture

  1. Oct 22, 2011 #1
    Hi, I want to Research and Lecture Theoretical astrophysics at a university when I'm older. I'm planning on doing a BSc (honours), Masters, PhD, and a ScD

    Do you need a Post Doc to research and do lecture? Apparently Post Doc are one of the hardest degrees ..

    A postdoc isn't a degree, it's a job title. Usually, after one obtains a PhD, one spends around 5 years working as a postdoc before becoming a lecturer.

    If I were you, I would take things one step at a time, and focus on your undergraduate degree.

    Indeed, you should focus on doing well in high school.

    Oh I didn't know it was only a job title, thanks!

    I need to ask you a question, I'm currently studying Khan Academy, Tutor Homework, ANU, and School work. Should I just drop Khan Academy and just revise on school work?

    You shouldn't let extra work get in the way of assignments. Are you getting excellent grades in your courses? Then you're fine. If not, work on them until you are - and then you can think about additional work.
