Career memes of the week: PhD

17 Sep 201355 Shares

Following the news that Ireland has seen an increase in research post-graduates in recent years, according to Dr Lisa Looney, Dean of Graduate Studies at Dublin City University, we present career memes in honour of those pursuing a PhD.

Looney recently spoke to Siliconrepublic.com about how post-graduate education in Ireland is changing, tailoring PhD supports, and moves to scale up a more structured approach.

A PhD – doctor of philosophy – is the highest post-graduate academic degree universities award candidates who have completed at least three years of graduate study and a dissertation. In other words, PhD candidates work with a thesis supervisor to produce a body work that is comprised of research they have carried out, analysed and written up themselves.
