ERG SES J, ERC/ WERA Round Table
Round Table coorganised with WERA
Doing a Ph.D it is a unique research experience. For many candidates it’s the beginning of their career as professional academic researchers and one of the most important learning processes.
Doing a PhD is an enterprise that consists of different stages, each presenting different characteristics and its own challenges. A Ph.D. demands substantial work and involves different talents; different kinds of theses and different approaches makes the task even more difficult.
From the selection of the research area to the public defense of the thesis, collecting and analyzing data, producing results, writing the thesis, the Ph.D candidate has a long way to go.
Researchers-in-training constantly have to grapple with feelings of uncertainty and isolation whichrepresent an added burden to all other challenges.Managing these emotions can compromise making consistent forward progress.
This roundtable intends to discuss the different challenges Ph.D. students face during the several phases of their journey and help demystify, understand and tackle some of the hardships associated with the achievement of a doctorate.Roundtable:
