Welcome to the Schneider group information page. Additional information on the Group can be found on Bill’s website.
This repo is a collection of org mode files created within emacs and shared on github. It is intended to be used as a portal for sharing information about the group. You can either read it through git or download to your own computer. As you get more experience with all these mysterious things, contribute (“push”) new/updated information to the repo.
New Group members
Some tips on getting started in the Group can be found on the New-Group-Member page.
For information about computers, software, scripts, etc. used in the group, please visit Group Resources page.
Schneider’s group regularly attends the CoMSEL Supergroup meetings, as well as holding weekly Group meetings and topical Subgroup meetings. The schedule is shared on a Google Calendar. Additional one-on-one meetings with Professor Schneider can be arranged as needed.
Dissertations are available at GDrive/Group/Dissertations.
Policies and Procedures
Group members are encouraged to present their research at conferences. Information about attending conferences can be found on the Conferences page.
Group members are expected to publish as part of their degree or post-doctoral work. Information about publishing in the group can be found on the Publishing page.
Before a scientific paper is published, it goes through peer review. Information on the review process can be found on the Reviewing page.
Be nice to everyone in the group, and leave the group better than you found it.
At the end of (June and ) December each year Schneider would like an “accomplishments” report to use as a basis for a one-on-one discussion about research progress, future research directions, graduation plans, and post graduation plans. A Google template of the report is available here. (Create a copy before typing in this!) Someone needs to create an org version!
Work Week and Time Off
Graduate school is generally not a 40 hour a week job, at least if you hope to graduate before funding runs out. Work hard and have fun. Some people are early birds, some are night owls. Whatever the case, try to be in the office between the hours 10 am - 4 pm, when most meetings are held. The University has a number of holidays, plus you are “officially” given two weeks a year of vacation. Be courteous and let your coworkers and supervisors know when you’ll be out of the office.
When you are sick, please stay home. No one in CoMSEL is interested in sharing your germs.
Group computers are hosted by the Notre Dame Center for Research Computing. Information on computers is available here.
We are a handsome/beautiful bunch, as documented in photos….
