hi, if you want to do your PhD, if your heart feels right, then do it. Thinking about what kind of job to get with your PhD is good too but that shouldn't be the motivating factor.you are still young, if I were you I would do my PhD and worry about the job later because eventually things fall in place. They usually do. Best regards

hi. This is something my old supervisor told me, when he was doing his phd, he didn't get any results for the 1st TWO YEARS, it was that awful. Luckily things turned around and he was able to finish.

Yes you need that job. Tomorrow is 1st of May.

I have been through the difficulty of working fulltime and doing research part-time which turned out to be full-time, sleeping in the lab while my gels ran. I went straight to work in the morning after long nights in the lab. I have also seen people taking up to 4 years doing MSc by research (!!!) can you imagine.

My old supervisor once told me, do your master (or your PhD) because you want to do it, not because of how much time its going to take and how much money you are going to make.

but if your phd is important to you, if it's going to take more time, why not? Everything will be ok. Good luck.

thanks for your response. My area is biological sciences (molecular). This is from Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa: Citizens of non-European Union nations, born after 31 December 1975, who have attained a 2nd- cycle university degree or equivalent or who will complete it by 30 September 2007 for candidates to the Faculty of Arts or by 30 November 2007 for the Faculty of Sciences can compete for positions in the doctoral program. Everytime I read something like this, it gets depressing. I should look elsewhere.

hi everyone, I did not have a chance to go to university when I left school. At age 30 I did a 4-year BSc program, I was working, studying and taking care of my family. Now I am on a full scholarship for MSc but I am just a few years away from age 40. I will be finishing this Master by Mac 2008. I don't know why I feel lost now, it seems as if PhD scholarships/studentships are always for younger students. Or maybe I've just been looking in the wrong places. Does anyone know where I can find applications for phd position with no age preference? thanks
