Campus screening of the PHD Movie 2

UiS Doctoral Community is delighted to invite all UiS Doctorate Candidates and Master Students for a free camping screening of the PhD Movie 2.

You might have seen the comic Piled Higher and Deeper about life in academia? Now it is time to see the movie! Stipendiatene i Norge and UiS Doctoral Community will cover the cost of screening the movie and will provide drinks and popcorn. Watching this movie is a unique opportunity to learn about all the specifics of being a PhD student in a fun and entertaining way. If someone is wondering why the Phd Movie is worth spending time on watching it, check out the synopses and some of the reviews of the movie below.

Synopses and reviews

The PHD Movie 2 looks at themes of competition in research, overcoming writer's block, and finding your voice. Winston is now an integral part of Prof. Smith's Lab. However, the current economic situation has put the lab in peril as research funding levels are at an all-time low. The group must travel to an important academic conference and square off against a rival research group as they compete for results and grant money.

Meanwhile, Cecilia's advisor declares he is going on sabbatical, which means she has to finish writing her thesis or be stuck in grad school another year.

"It's Awesome." -Shaun, grad student, Caltech

"We can use films [such as The PHD Movie] to start a conversation about how to nurture the practitioners and purveyors of science."-The Journal Nature
