RT @thesiswhisperer: PhD students are so “focussed on academia” that they have not learned how to “team well” with others and collaborate.

@JeffreyKeefer @thesiswhisperer I’m wary of that – maybe in Hum/SS but in STEM often impossible not to team.
@JeffreyKeefer @thesiswhisperer Or to put it another way – as your infrastructure and oncosts raise so do the need for collaboration skills.
@JeffreyKeefer @thesiswhisperer I think the PhD system (at least in UK) prevents you as a student to team with others.
@JeffreyKeefer @thesiswhisperer have worked in teams all my life (healthcare,teaching, research). PhD most isolating of all.
