Surviving PhD

Doing research in the field that you are so passionate about sounds like a dream job, and yet, studies show that more than 50% of PhD candidates suffer from severe psychological problems including depression and anxiety. So, what makes PhD so stressful? What are the good and bad sides of it? What are the obstacles that one can face? In the next 6 episodes, members of Aita Bioarcheology team will share their experiences, with an accent on the struggles they had while doing it. The idea is to help grad and master students in this process of deciding whether they should apply for a Ph.D. but also to show to those who are struggling with their Ph.D. that they are not alone and that the struggle is real 🙂
