出版社からのコメント

"In her new book, At the Helm: A Laboratory Navigator, Kathy Barker provides a handbook to guide new PI past some of the pitfalls and problems of starting and managing a research laboratory. She skillfully weaves material from interviews, scientific memoirs and management theory into a valuable and unique discourse on the many challenges facing the laboratory head, with practical guidance and suggestions for meeting these challenges.

… The major strength of the book lies in its near comprehensive treatment of the issues pertaining to laboratory personnel, and it is in these sections that the book should prove invaluable to inexperienced lab managers." --Trends in Genetics

レビュー

I wish this book had been available when I was setting up my lab! Packed with tips on the practical aspects of getting a lab up and running, it also carefully considers all of the emotional and philosophical issues critical to managing a successful laboratory. From offering advice on how to configure lab computers and strategies for time management, to suggesting wise ways to select lab personnel and avoid lab conflicts, Kathy Barker has taken a no-nonsense approach to all of the issues facing the starting principal investigator. Although I've run a lab for 7 years, I found numerous points that could improve our existing organization. Barker's humourous, readable style made this book a pleasure to read; I found myself nodding in recognition at the multiple quotations from current principal investigators. For those starting a lab, hoping to improve their own lab management, or simply interested in hearing what others in their position have gone through, this book is a terrific resource. -- Sally Kornbluth Duke University Medical Center This book clearly lays out guidelines for those making the transition from their training and bench work as graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to running their own labs. Written in a straightforward style, the book provides vital information needed to avoid common mistakes and get off to a good start... The chapter Choose Your People was particularly telling. Advice about the hiring process is covered comprehensively... What surprised me most about the book was that it was not just a list of basic management mantras. Each chapter in At the Helm includes anonymous voices from many researchers around the country expressing candid opinions, anecdotes and ideas. These quotes include real solutions to some of the unusual problems that one might encounter as a new principal investigator... I believe experienced managers will also find some useful advice in it to help keep their labs running smoothly. Nature Medicine

大学教員として(PIとして)研究を率いる立場になった方々が読者層。研究グループやラボの立ち上げのときに考えるべき事柄や悩むことについて、筆者やその他先人の経験をもとに丁寧に説明、アドバイスされているのが素晴らしい。雇用主との雇用条件の交渉方法、スタートアップ・ファンドがあるからといってポスドクや博士課程の学生を盲目的に雇うのが正しいことなのか、グラントプロポーザルを書くときの心構えなど、微に入り細に入り細かく詳しくアドバイスをくれるのが非常に役に立った。独立したばかりのPIにとって座右の書です。

Must have for all research lab heads 2002/2/22
投稿者 Steve M. Potter - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
This is a fantastic book. The author interviewed about a hundred new and seasoned lab leaders, and not only summarizes their advice clearly and succinctly, but also includes lots of anonymous quotations presenting a spectrum of opinions on any particular issue. And the book covers _many_ issues of interest to those setting up a lab, and those who wish to improve the way they run their lab. It focuses mostly on academic labs, but also presents some issues peculiar to industry. It really goes into every detail about people-managing issues.
Each chapter has tens of references to other useful books and articles. Kathy really did her homework. I can say nothing bad about the book. Get it.

Invaluable tool for becoming productive and efficient in your research lab 2005/8/3
投稿者 Amazon Customer - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
This is the book all grad students should read because this book discusses the things that you typically don't learn in grad school. The book is meant for new faculty, but anyone interested in learning practical lab management issues is encouraged to read this book. There is something useful in this book for both green rookies and experienced veterans.

There is nothing in the book that is earth-scattering information; most of it is common sense. But nowhere else have I seen such a variety of practical information on lab management compressed into one book. There are even a variety of quotes from other professors about specific situations that are quite enlightening.

The author includes many topics such as conflict resolution, time and management, recruitment skills, and general management skills. Of course none of these topics are covered in dramatic detail (and likely don't need to be) but each one is broken down into very manageable, independent sections. I found myself applying immediately the things I had learned, realizing ways I can supervise my students better than I had before.

The text is also geared more towards academic life sciences, but even as a physicist I found this book invaluable. Highly recommended to anyone working in a lab, and in particular to anyone charged with management responsibilities in a laboratory setting. The author is to be congratulated!

An outstanding primer to managing a laboratory 2002/6/12
投稿者 カスタマー - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
Scientific faculty are chosen for their ability to do science; not to manage it. Indeed, many young scientists fail precisely because they are unable to shift from the bench to the office. Kathy Barker's book provides a wealth of information for new investigators. The advice, gleaned from interviews with a great many scientists, from Nobel laureates to those that have failed miserably, provides an outstanding road map for those embarking on this critical new phase of their career. No postdoc will leave my lab without receiving a copy as a parting gift.

Fantastic for the new professor 2004/1/1
投稿者 Mohamed A. F. Noor - (Amazon.com)

I love this book and only wish it was published when I was first starting a faculty position. Definitely a biologist's perspective (and a lab-oriented one at that), but it covers many of the trials and tribulations of starting a new faculty position: setting up a lab, assessing priorities, making hires, managing committees, managing colleagues, etc.
The worst part of the job is often maintaining harmony in the lab (which, of course, we're never taught in graduate school), and Barker has great advice on building or rebuilding lab morale, dealing with lab member disputes, and the dreaded firing process. I recommend this book wholeheartedly!

Good book. Trivial at first glance, but actually useful. 2012/11/4
投稿者 Mock - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
I purchased this book when I worked as a graduate student in North America. I first started reading it then, but quickly put it aside, fairly disappointed, because it seemed to contain only trivial and obvious advice. Now, years later, working as a postdoc in Europe, I finished reading the book in its entirety. Lo and behold: it is a useful book indeed. In a nutshell, my opinion is as follows: what should be trivial information is actually not at all obvious to many advanced scientists, especially Principal Investigators (the main target group of this book). Thus, Kathy Barker's book contains many useful hints and suggestions for senior people at different stages of their career. For more junior people, the same hints and suggestions may prove useful on their way to becoming Principal Investigators.
