Short description:

A Road to Ph.D.: Supervision, Networking, and Autonomous Work is an online training session where the Ph.D. study process will be discussed, as well as the common challenges that can be faced. The interactive session will provide you with tips on how to create a healthy work routine and take care of oneself (and the different ways we can do that). The Ph.D. is a journey and it is important to learn, but it is more important to enjoy the process along the way and to learn what is expected of you and how to navigate this new level of studies.

Training topics:

  • Cultivating autonomy and self-motivation in your research journey
  • Overcoming common challenges faced by ECRs and finding solutions
  • Balancing responsibilities and maintaining a healthy work-life balance
  • Self-care during the Ph.D
