And in my lab science field, given the ratio of materials expended in training/experiments that don't work to data generated by even the best undegrads, faculty who have students in their lab are basically paying in grant dollars for the "privilege".
Quote from: artalot on October 17, 2023, 11:14:19 AMWe have a program where juniors and seniors can get research funding and even a small stipend, but the faculty get nothing. It can be useful if students are working on a part of your own research; otherwise there is no reason to do it.
Quote from: Kron3007 on October 23, 2023, 03:31:53 AMThanks for all the feedback everyone.I have long thought that there should be a small amount that goes to the supervisor's lab/group to help offset the costs. Obviously it would likely not cover the true/full costs for many of us, but there should be something. I was hoping that perhaps this is common and I could use that to help support the pitch, but it seems it is not. Anyway, I will likely continue to do them for the students' sake. I have also used this to recruit grad students with good success, kind of like a test drive. However, I do think even a token amount would increase faculty engagement.
