Why Ph.D.? – Breaking the myths and misconceptions about Ph.D. and a guide to become a successful researcher

August 11, 2023 @ 10:00 am11:00 am

Studies have indicated several misconceptions about Ph.D., its journey, and opportunities post-Ph.D. This leads to students, despite having the ability, often not pursuing Ph.D. or many leaving India in search of Ph.D. opportunities elsewhere. Likewise, for young Ph.D. researchers also, it is important to clear misconceptions. We have embarked to address this by directly engaging with students. Keeping this in mind, in this talk, I will walk the students through (1) What is Ph.D., (2) What the general myths related to Ph.D. are, (3) Global opportunities, in general, post-Ph.D. in India, (4) Why one should do Ph.D., and in the end (5) Who should peruse Ph.D. More details of the content can be found here (first 20 mins): and here:
