Tipps on doing your PhD from people that know what they are talking about
In the 39th iteration of our Desk Reject Podcast, you will not be hearing from the usual Desk Reject team and you will not be hearing our usual German conversation about the plights and trepidations of PhDs. This episode is very near and dear to the Desk Reject teams' hearts as we have managed to get the hosts of the "This IS Research" Podcast into our virtual studio to share some of their wisdom with us and our listeners. Nick Berente, Full Professor of IT at the Mendoza College of Business, and Jan Recker, Nucleus Professor for Information Systems and Digital Innovation at the University of Hamburg, will use this hour to share a cornucopia filled with valuable insights for any aspiring or current PhD students. No matter what field you are (planning on) pursuing your graduate degree in, Nick and Jan provide you with insightful answers to our burning questions on:
- What makes a good or great PhD candidate
- How to choose your PhD program
- How to think about your researcher identity
- Why you should aim for a community of support rather than the envy trap
and much more
We would be remised if we didn't make you aware of the incredible "This IS Research" Podcast that will fill your empty hours of waiting for the Desk Reject team to release their monthly episode with a wonderful backlog of great content. You can find their podcast in any and every podcast player of choice
