Survival Workshop 1 Dec

Our next workshop is taking place on 1 Dec 2017. We meet at 5.30 pm at  Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Mikszáth tér 1., room 311.

– welcoming our new members
– presentations on all topics academic and non-academic. As early career researchers we follow various strategies to survive: we work for multinational companies, teach at language schools, volunteer at various institutions, translate, and occasionally do some research. This workshop is designed to offer a platform where we talk about everything and anything that a PhD student or PhD candidate does to make a living in Hungary PLUS research topics.
