Blaming the victim, follow-up.

As expected, I was not the only one providing some push back to the Nature Jobs article I discussed previously. Together, they make reasonable suggestions, both towards the supervisor, and the university. The first one by D. A. McDonald acknowledges that supervisors should be open aware of all aspects of their graduate students' lives ("what they do when they are not in the lab"). The second one by D. Mehta and K. Vavitsas point out institutional resources that can help tackle one of the root problems ("providing more courses and resources to train principal investigators in management and leadership"). I wonder what the participation rate would be for UoG faculty if the university would offer these types of courses?
