Are PhDs rare?

13 funded PhD positions (Late Medieval/Early Modern Book Studies) in the MSCA REBPAF Doctoral Network

‘Re-intervention of Early Books: Pasts and Futures’ (REBPAF). European Commission network, which supports 13 doctoral students undertaking projects on late medieval and modern books. Successful applicants will register for PhD programs in the following institutions: University of Galway (3 positions), University of Antwerp (2 positions), University of Alicante (2 positions), University of Zurich (2 positions), University of Vienna (2 positions). ). ) and the University of Bristol (2 posts). All doctoral students recruited to this network will join a dynamic and unified international community of researchers; They also benefit from bespoke programs across the web and gain hands-on work experience in related cultural sectors as part of their training programme.

Eat and drink well

Does food intake significantly affect a student’s performance in the exam? Apparently yes. It makes us think twice about snacking on those fast food chicken nuggets and king-size burgers.

It goes without saying that a balanced diet keeps us healthy, but for a graduate student about to take an important exam, a healthy diet helps focus. Remember not to skip a single meal, not only for the obvious nutritional benefits, but also to avoid a major drop in your blood sugar. You definitely don’t want that, especially not before the big test!

Doctoral students are learning doctors.

PhD means “Doctor of Philosophy”.

Philosophy is the study of knowledge and the nature of knowledge.

What is the best age for a doctorate?

The best age for a doctorate is three years ago. Second time is now the best. In fact, the best age to get a PhD is when you can complete it. The sooner you finish your PhD, the more life and career you will have with it, but there is no optimal age.

Depending on the subject, a master’s degree can shorten the time needed to complete a doctorate. If your discipline’s doctoral programs are structured to assume you have a master’s degree before entering, then yes, you will get a doctorate faster.

What did you learn about the lab experience? Where are the surprises?

I was surprised by the warm and friendly atmosphere that prevailed in every laboratory I visited. Everyone was focused and engaged in their research, but always made time for social interaction, even if it was just discussing weekend plans or heading to Koerner’s Pub on quiz night.

My greatest achievement is the breadth of the field of biomedical engineering and the diversity of research within the UBC School of Biomedical Engineering. Almost any researcher with a scientific/technical background will find a wide range of applicable research within the UBC School of Biomedical Engineering to match their skills.
