PhD-day 2014

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and the Science Library invites its Ph.D. candidates to a day of motivation, inspiration and dissemination. You will have the opportunity to get feedback on how to manage your Ph.D. studies, and at the same time reach out with your research by exhibiting a poster in the foyer of Vilhelm Bjerknes' House. Read more about the poster session and submit your abstract with this form. Dean Morten Dæhlen will award the best poster with a prize! There will be a BBQ at 15:30. Starting at 16:30 we invite you to a talk by creator of PhD Comics, Jorge Cham!
