POST-CONFERENCE ROUNDTABLES: Sunday, July 1 14.00 – at the SDU building (room TBA)

Participate in roundtables with your peers to discuss subjects that truly matter to PhD student in a welcoming, non-judgemental, and collaborative environment. Three roundtables will be organized around the following topics.

Managing the relationship with the advisor/supervisor – chairs: Anil Isisag, Anuja Pradhan, & Luciana Velloso

Advisors/supervisors play a major role in our Ph.D. years. This session will focus on students’ best practices when managing the relationship with this key person (s) to maximize research support, encouragement, job placement, ongoing collaboration, etc. Managing the relationship may also include building a supportive team when this relationship is weak or becomes strained.

Planning your day/organizing your time – chairs: Maíra Lopes, Isabela Morais, & Maja Golf Papež

The Ph.D. years differ in intensity and expectations. This session will focus on students’ best practices around juggling time to meet Ph.D. program milestones (e.g., required papers and/or exams, working on dissertation), publish, and manage self-care and other important commitments such as to family and friends. 

Planning your career for the first 5 years after the Ph.D. – chairs: Hanane Driouich, Alison Joubert, Laetitia Mimoun, & Lez Trujillo Torres

The Ph.D. years are foundational for what can be a long, rewarding career. This session will focus on students’ and new faculty’s best practices around tenure requirements (e.g., research, teaching, service), job market negotiations, and selecting a school or career that suits your short and long-term objectives.
