Hello I will defend in a couple of weeks and I have been asked to do experiments that are not directly adding to my thesis (I can force it and add If I wanted but not really critical). Normally PhD candidates in the final stage are given a time to work on their PhD thesis and in my situation I am expected to attend all the meetings and still do very active research. Finally I wrote an email to my Prof that I cannot do any more experiments until I finish my thesis. His idea was to extend it, but my thesis is already extended due to project deadlines and I am already talking to companies for job interviews and I do not want to extend it anymore. So I wrote an email about it. Shouldn't the deadlines be for out lives instead of project deadlines which never end? Professors wants to keep the senior students as long as they can since they know they work hard an produce data really fast. But thats it, I am done. Thanks for listening.
