Don’t you see that flying saucer over there? No, I don't see it. Why not? – “because it’s not my problem.” Douglas Adams, from The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Think back for a moment on how you found your first grad school mentor or thesis advisor. How did you get to work in that lab? In my university, one needed to earn an MS before the PhD. I was in my first semester and was looking for an advisor, a lab to work in, and an interesting problem to solve in not more than 18 months of research – just about the time I thought it ought to take to do the MS coursework.
