I have been writing blog entries under this blog for many months. The aim was to give insight into issues faced by students during a PhD. I am hopeful that some of the entries may have been useful to some of you considering starting a PhD or in the middle of a PhD.
Jobs.ac.uk is now looking for some one to replace me and contribute to the blog with the general theme of a life of a PhD student. If you are passionate about passing on helpful information or like to write about your experiences, you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The entries do not have to restricted to PhD. They may examine wider topics such as job search, academia, research etc. The main aim is that the reader may be able to get something useful regarding PhD and related issues. Although some of my entries were related to my research subject, the entries should be general enough so that a person from outside the subject may also find it interesting or useful.
Many of the graduate students are also interested in examining different career paths after their degrees. It will also be useful if you consider writing about different career options which you may come across because of your research or conversations with others. You can discuss all of this and more in your email to email@example.com. They may ask you to write a sample blog entry just to get an idea of what to expect from you.
Thank you and happy blogging!
