Quiet PhD rumbling – still getting nowhere

March 28, 2012

Quick update on my progress with the project funds and the department of Biology at UiO. I’m basically stuck. Although, my case has been poorly handled by the department, the legal advisor from the union doubted that legal action would get me anywhere. Overhead cost can be a high maintenance bitch that leaves you with – nothing. (Yes, I’m a girl too.)

My advise to other PhD-students: Take control of project funds, bitch about it if your supervisor either forgets to or won’t let you in on your projects economy – and be sure to spend it all while you still can.

I’m going to have a talk with somebody on the department board about how PhD students are treated in cases like mine. Still angry, but too busy to let it consume much of my energy right now.
