On January 24th, we hosted our very first Ph.d.-night at Deiglig Fyrhuset on campus Pilestredet. The topic was: “Strategies to survive a ph.d.” and we had three talented speakers who shared their insights from their perspectives as professor and supervisor (Silje Bringsrud Fekjær), former ph.d.-student (Ellisiv Lærum Jacobsen) and current ph.d.-student (Jon Magnus Eilertsen). We were anxious to see how many who would find their way to this event on a Thursday evening and were ecstatic to see that close to fifty of you (!) had made time in your schedule for free pizza, good advice and socializing with your peers.
We had a lot of fun and hope to do this again later in the spring semester, preferably in English. We got some suggestions for future topics, but always welcome new ideas and encourage you to write to us on firstname.lastname@example.org
