I will be getting my Ph.D. in computer science in several months, from a US university.
Over the course of my research I have stumbled on a number of interesting directions that I didn't have time to pursue.
Now that my Ph.D. is coming to an end, and I will be leaving (hopefully for a postdoc), I was wondering if it's a good idea to put some of these research directions into a grant proposal with my advisors?
My questions are:
- Is this a good idea, especially given the fact that I will not be affiliated with my current institution anymore?
- Is this a good career move, at this point, or should I postpone this to another time?
