Desk Reject: der PhD-Cast

Im podcast "Desk Reject: der PhD-Cast" unterhalten sich die 4 Nachwuchsforscher Sopherl, Sasha, Didi und Boris über alles was angehende, derzeitige oder bereits promovierte PhD oder Doktoratskandidaten beschäftigt. Unter anderem werden Themen angesprochen wie: - Wieso überhaupt einen PhD oder einen Doktor machen? - Mit was möchte man sich beschäftigen? - Mit was beschäftigt man sich tatsächlich? - Wie geht man mit der Einsamkeit und Ängsten um? - Wie vereint man Forschung mit Lehrverpflichtung? Wir finden uns, mehr oder weniger, regelmäßig in, mehr oder weniger, derselben Konstellation im Keller der Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien ein, um unsere Halbweisheiten mit der Welt zu teilen. Disclaimer: Wir übernehmen keine Haftung für den Wahrheitsgehalt unserer Aussagen und raten Zuhöreren davon ab, wichtige Entscheidungen aufgrund unserer Ratschläge zu treffen.

episode 41: The Final Countdown


About late-stage PhD prayers and panic attacks

The hosts can hardly believe it, but at least two of them, Dieter and Alexander, are moving into the final quarter of their PhD studies at breakneck speed. At the same time, Philipp is trying to speed up his own timetable to match the formers'. Each phase of the PhD comes with its own set of opportunities and challenges. While the hosts have learned a lot over the last 3-4 years, much of which we shared with our loyal listeners in this podcast, there still is so much more that they have no clue about. Hence, in this episode, the hosts minus Sophie decided to tackle the topic of "late-stage plans", sharing among other things:

  • What, if any, of the hosts' perspectives have changed over the years
  • What the hosts are planning to accomplish in the final 1-2 years of their graduate studies
  • What the hosts definitely plan to avoid
  • What the hosts wish that they will be able to look back upon once they have completed their degree As you may have noticed from the description - we recorded our episode in English once again. We believe there may be more listeners out there that would appreciate what we have to say but don't understand German, as opposed to listeners that don't understand English. But let us know what you think via Instagram, Twitter or good ol' e-mail: deskreject.podcast@gmail.com
