Information on Other Correspondence with Professor Krizek
Co-authoring a paper: If we are co-authoring a manuscript/report or preparing a proposal together, please review the following material and incorporate this material into drafts.
Reference letters: If you are seeking a reference letter from me for a fellowship, admittance into a grad program or employment, I am happy to help. My ability to prepare such a letter, however, assumes we have had at least two different types of interactions (i.e., a research assistant, a teaching assistant, you were a student in a class I taught or you have attended office hours a few times). If these don’t apply, I am sorry, I am unable to provide solid reference material on which to draw.
In order to help me better help you, please provide the following 5 things:
(1) a current copy of your resume, (2) a description of the program/job/fellowship to which you are applying, (3) the personal statement that you prepared for the program/job/fellowship (draft form is fine), (4) two paragraphs prepared by you (though written from my perspective) explaining how you advance the goals of the job, etc. (i.e., how great you would be for the position) and how our interactions are evidence of such (please insert such directly into this template and complete the other accompanying information), (5) a clear articulation of the deadline and all of the above material at least one week in advance of that deadline (however, 72 hours will do IF I am in town). Thanks for understanding.
PhD Advisees: If you are a prospective or current PhD student and I am your primary advisor, here are some guidelines to help get the most out of me.
