By popular demand: Here is "The Academy," my circle of scientists, researchers, and Ph.D. students. Please note that this does not represent the full population of the circle. There's some 290 people in there right now, and only 250 names can be shared at one time through the new shared circles system.

Also: If you'd like to be added to The Academy, please let me know!

Maggie Koerth-Baker shared a circle with you.

I would like to be added please :) I'm a post-doc at Cardiff University. Thanks! :)
What's your specialty, +Vincent Knight? Just want to make sure that I've clarified that it's just science, social science, and research engineering Ph.D.s (As much as I do love English majors.)
You can add me...postdoc @ u of alabama at birmingham...studying genetics/mol bio of blood disorders
As a scientist, I appreciate you making this list available. Thanks :)
I have a PhD in Science and Mathematics Education with specializations in Physics and Engineering Education. I focus heavily on how people learn in Mathematics and Science.
Thank you! I knew being lazy would pay-off. I kept delaying the task of manually seeking and dragging profiles into circles (great an effort as it is).
Thanks a bunch, Maggie. I really appreciate this!
Thanks, I was wondering why I suddenly started gaining a following. Cool.
How about MS in Criminalistics candidate, hoping to start on a PhD in Archaeology/Paleopathology in 2 years?
This is so cool. I hope good things come of this. With such advances in science across the spectrum, science really needs to be connected across different disciplines.
Thanks for sharing; can add me I'm a prof. of geology, with interests in natural resource usage, mineral science, geochemistry, isotope studies, plate tectonics, & earth history.
+Maggie Koerth-Baker, I'd love to be added! I'm an assistant professor of psychiatry at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School doing research on tobacco use and dependence. Thanks for creating this circle and sharing it!
+Maggie Koerth-Baker so you said there's 290 in the list and only 250 released in the first circle. Any chance you're collecting the new names and plan on releasing a 2nd circle?
I'm a grad student in chemistry studying nanomaterials, available for adding :)
I'm a first year PhD student at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities studying Family Social Science and specializing in Marriage and Family Therapy.

My research focuses around families' interactions with mental illness and the social service delivery system. I'm also interested in family formation with assistive reproductive technologies (working with the Family Communication Project:, trauma, poverty and social justice issues.

Here's my professional blog:
Add me into any appropriate list, please. I am a Ph.D. neuroscientist studying psychiatric genetics and psychopharmacology, with particular expertise in hallucinogens and interest in social aspects of pharmacology. Thanks!
Would love to be in the circle, and can you split out the other 40+ as a "part 2"?
I'm interested to see what you post to the Academy circle. I'm a medicinal chemist doing discovery research in the pharmaceutical industry.
I'd like to be added too. (still undergrad, but am actively doing research and applying to PhD programs next year). also a heavy poster to Quora's science sections at

Is there room for 1 more? I'm an experimental psychologist at UC Santa Barbara.
I'd like to be added to this circle .... I'm a science educator who is promoting the public understanding of science via a global science video competition .... with 42 days left till the upload deadline, I'd love to see some G+ scientists or science bloggers enter the 2011 competition.
This seems very interesting! Can I join, too? I've just finished my Ph.D. in computer science (human-robot interaction) at the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo and I am going to work at the Google R&D Center in Tokyo from this November.
I am very happy with my newly filled out Science circle. Thanks you so much for sharing your circle.
I'm a scientist :)
Also, does anyone have a mathematics/mathematicians circle to share?
Add me to your academy circle, please. I study complex system science. Thank you.
You're added to The Academy. And YOU'RE added to The Academy. You're all getting added to The Academy! /oprah
But I didn't see anything under my chair! ;-P
I am a PhD candidate. I study architectonics of feather and beak and other cornified or mineralised bird parts.
Thanks for sharing this list. I'm a materials physicist currently working on graphene and other nanomaterials, and wouldn't mind being added.

Should we start a second accademy circle for those beyond the 250 Mark?
The trouble is that Google+ doesn't tell me which 250 were shared and who got left behind. And I don't have time right now to compare the two lists and figure it out.
+Maggie Koerth-Baker if you happen to have been adding the extra people (requests to join - people like myself) to your own Academy circle, then if you share the complete circle again publicly (so now with more than the original 250), this is fine - people can add the 'new' circle to their existing academy circle and it G+ ensures it syncs automatically i.e. it will only add the new people to the circle. So everyone wins :) Thanks!
Ph.D candidate (still ABD...groan) and visiting professor of communications and media studies here...
Hi. I'm a PhD student in Physics. Can I join this academy?
PhD candidate in CS! You can add me if you wish :)
