"How to make to the most of your Ph.D", serious of meetings for Women students forums of the Weizmann Institute
It does not matter at which stage of your Ph.D. you are, or what your field of interest is - you probably found yourself wondering many times: “how can I finish a great Ph.D.? How can I maximize the chances to shine out in the next stage of my scientificcareer?” Often people believe that publishing a paper in one of the top notch journals is enough – but it’s not. If you spend your PhD only doing whatever is required for publishing such a paper you might be missing out on other important aspects of success. In this workshop we will discuss what can be done to make the most of your Ph.D. I will give you some ideas from my experience and you can also share yours. I encourage you to use this opportunity to take responsibility for your career, meet new students at a similar stage and support each other.
