I'm a PhD student now!

  1. Sep 25, 2006 #1
    It's official! As of 1st of October I'll be granted a part-time assistentship, which will enable me to start my PhD. A bunch of research groups have already expressed their interest, but my first choice will remain theoretical particle physics.

    This means that I will also have to teach the exercise sessions for a couple of courses : Solid State and Radiation Physics, Electrodynamics and Special Relativity and finally Quantum Mechanics. Classes start next week. I've already had a few meeting with the professors involved and I must say that the atmosphere is really good. I like it already :biggrin:

    Congrats man. I hope you get a good monthly pay. If you don't, try IWT, they pay very good and your lunch is FOR FREE :rofl:

    Maybe later, it's certainly an option. This year this wasn't possible because the deadline was to close to my graduation.
