Principal speaker

Dr Eva Selenko


What is a PhD? How to make it a success? And... what next? How to land a career in academia? Academic journeys can be multifaceted, nonlinear, unexpected and wonderful - but they are never as straightforward as the final document of a PhD or CVs imply. That said, there are still certain elements that make or break good research and help you getting published. The challenge is to find your own approach and happiness, growing your passion and enthusiasm, while becoming better and better in doing good research.

Join Eva for a chat and reflection about PhDs and academic career journeys and discuss your own experiences and plans for the next stage.
