Some advice from an ex-PhD student in Sciences to present and future ones

Dr Pauline Fritsch is a blog writer who got her PhD in Neurobiology at the University of Fribourg in 2017.
Her aim is “to discuss about what helped her during her PhD studies in the hope that it can help other students and maybe inspire universities in what to do to help their students”.


The author is writing about the PhD students’ #mental health and about #soft skills (transferable skills) as according to her, these two subjects are partly overlapping.
