stealthpooch@HelenHickson I got the teaching job just by asking the uni, and writing jobs throughproposals to journals (build a relationship) #phdchat2/1/2012 9:12:17thesiswhisperer @waginski many students, including myself, have this problem. Sometimes unis offer special scholarships based on PhD performance #phdchat2/1/2012 9:12:31BoredPostdoc@waginski That's always going to be the case. Scholarships are on academic merit andEXTREMELY competitive b/c of limited funding #phdchat2/1/2012 9:12:41lizith@lindathestar thanks for the welcome Linda #phdchat2/1/2012 9:12:57lindathestar@PJ_Weatherill Thanks, useful tip #phdchat2/1/2012 9:13:00thesiswhisperer @PJ_Weatherill @lindathestar great tip - I can vouch for that too.
