On-line course: Supervision of doctoral theses

The process of doing a doctoral thesis requires the student a continuous effort that is often full of difficulties, as evidenced by the high drop-out rate. The role of supervision from both the tutor and the supervisor is essential to ensure that the doctoral student succeeds. In spite of this, there is no specific training on how to respond and face the difficulties that usually occur in this process. Objectives: To understand the different factors that hinder the process of a doctoral thesis. To understand the main competencies that the novice researcher must develop and the most usual incidents related to each of these competencies. To gain awareness of the different profiles that the sup

PhD Career Paths

This project overviews the personal and career trajectories of the social scientists and scientists whose lives we followed for 4-7 years. Individuals began participating as either doctoral students or post-PhD researchers, and were in one of two universities in Canada or one of two universities in the UK. By the time the study ended, they were scattered across 37 institutions in a range of sectors (academic, public, para-public and private) in five different countries.
