PhD Unplugged

The coaching podcast for PhD students

Welcome to PhD Unplugged
Juggling all the different tasks in your PhD can be tough. How to start when work is piling up? How to perform well when there is so much pressure? How to relax when work is always on your mind? How to make plans when the future is uncertain?

In 𝐏𝐡𝐃 𝐔𝐧𝐩𝐥𝐮𝐠𝐠𝐞𝐝, we bring together PhD students and professional coaches. Every podcast episode, we will talk about common struggles and how to overcome them.

Episode 4

Doing work that is personally meaningful is an important source of motivation for many PhD students. At the same time, having great passion and being intrinsically motivated for the job can also lead PhD students to overinvest in their careers. In this episode, we speak to PhD student Anastassia Vivanco Carlevari and former editor of Harvard Business Review, Karen Dillon about ‘how to measure your life’.
