So, let’s get down to business.
“(…) generally, you should run from laboratories where a PI is referred to as Doctor X and not by his or her first name” 1.I’ve found this to be a more US-oriented recommendation, as in Chile, we generally don’t refer to our supervisors by their first names, but also, not as Dr X. “Prof” is something we usually use. Nevertheless, the point remains: if everyone is your lab must refer to their supervisor as Doctor X, you should be cautious.
