Can PhD become rich?

Solving Europe’s complexities in a constantly changing world requires an understanding of the past and the present. Do you want to explore how texts, ideas and cultural objects move through time and space and question their role in new contexts? Then you can join as a doctoral student at the Radboud Institute for Culture & History.

As a doctoral student, you will write a doctoral thesis, attend the Humanities Graduate School, which includes courses of about six months, and you will do six months of academic service at the Faculty of Arts at Radboud University. Your thesis topic and research question should align with the RICH research in which this position is embedded. A description of our research groups can be found here. We are looking for four PhD students.

Invest often

You can invest in the stock market. In addition, there are many other investment options available that could put you in a better financial position. Talk to experts or friends with investment experience before making a decision.

OKAY. What are your next expenses?

28:22 Michele: Yeah, I think my next biggest expense would be my food that I throw together like eating out and groceries. So I’m guessing my first month was $450, then my second month was $385, so I’m guessing about $410 right now. Also, I didn’t bring any furniture with me when I moved, so I got good deals on all of them. So my total for that was $170.
