                  Landed! Catching up on live Oz #phdchat scroll back in the cab. Thanks to everyone, esp @EvaAlisic for
thesiswhisperer   a great session :-)                                                                                         7/3/2012 11:15
                  Totally missed #oz #phdchat with @thesiswhisperer + @evaalisic tonight. 2.5yo would _not_ go to
tseenkhoo         sleep. #grrr                                                                                                7/3/2012 11:03
                  in NZ a website to search for funding called breakout, but your institution needs to belong to get access

                  cathay pacific funded travel to my 1st international confernece via community travel grant- research
ai1sa             was with a not4profit agency #phdchat                                                                       7/3/2012 10:16
                  even when giving a paper, and all funding is by my uni where i study, the uni where i work now has a
ai1sa             problem releasing me !!! #phdchat                                                                           7/3/2012 10:06
ai1sa             @IClaudiad sad but true, also when studying internationally some exclusions occur #phdchat                  7/3/2012 10:04
                  RT @thesiswhisperer: My top tip. If you are cashed up enough and doing lots of travel, check out
Glenda_C_         special deals from Unis - like lounge membership #phdchat                                                    7/3/2012 9:51

                  @witty_knitter only with dept approval and it's not easy , at least at ANU. But get u re part time , is a
dooolism          life choice I guess #phdchat                                                                                 7/3/2012 9:27

                  That was my first #PhDchat. Thanks everyone, and especially @thesiswhisperer & @EvaAlisic - really
PhDgirlVietnam    helpful stuff!                                                                                               7/3/2012 9:21

                  Alternative funding for conferences again quite important for part timers as many traditional sources
IClaudiad         are not open to us. #phdchat.                                                                                 7/3/2012 9:16

                  Seriously consider tip about "non traditional" options for funding conference travel#phdchat ! Will

                  RT @witty_knitter: @thesiswhisperer @boredpostdoc the thing I liked best about @evaAlisic's TW post

RhythmicDeets     @EvaAlisic Nice to meet you! Thanks for co-hosting #PhDChat tonight. #High5toEva                              7/3/2012 9:12
BoredPostdoc      @EvaAlisic Good idea if you can afford to fund it yourself though. #phdchat                                   7/3/2012 9:10
                  Ride to work seems shorter this morning thanks to all taking part in #phdchat. Thanks to @EvaAlisic &
IClaudiad         all! Loads to read as I was late.                                                                             7/3/2012 9:10
                  Hi all, I need to go... :-( Thanks for the great chat! And hope to see you at lots of confs & international
EvaAlisic         exchanges etc :-) ! #phdchat                                                                                  7/3/2012 9:10
orientalhotel     @EvaAlisic Thanks for running #phdchat good tips all round. Plotting my next o/s adventure….                7/3/2012 9:09
                  @thesiswhisperer @dalereardon Personally, going to conference without presenting is waste of time &
yusunbin          money. Students short of both! #phdchat                                                                       7/3/2012 9:09
                  @EvaAlisic unfortunately things are not very organized in Italy; I am searching now abroad for
lygidakis         opportunities #phdchat                                                                                        7/3/2012 9:09
                How did I come into #PhDChat so late tonight... was the time changed... or is daylight savings now over
RhythmicDeets   in Melbourne. #Confused #PhDChat                                                                           7/3/2012 9:09
                @EvaAlisic @hanimutm @RhythmicDeets True. But a LOT of funding schemes I've seen will only give
BoredPostdoc    you money if you get an oral. #phdchat                                                                     7/3/2012 9:09
                @witty_knitter understandable cuz f/t tend to not work more than a couple of hours so they need APA
dooolism        to survive ! #phdchat                                                                                      7/3/2012 9:09

EvaAlisic       @BoredPostdoc (not for you but for PhD students in your field I mean) #phdchat                             7/3/2012 9:08
                #phdchat Hi/bye Aussie phdchatters I was late, working 10.5 hr teaching & prep day. Can take weekend

                @BoredPostdoc Maybe try to attend anyway and organise something with international PhD's, that
EvaAlisic       way you can still build a network. #phdchat                                                                7/3/2012 9:07

                @RhythmicDeets @hanimutm @EvaAlisic Sure it can be valid research, but in my field, it wouldn't get

                @BoredPostdoc @hanimutm @EvaAlisic If you make Lit Review connections not previously
RhythmicDeets   investigated, it can be cutting edge research. #PhDChat                                                    7/3/2012 9:06

                @hanimutm @BoredPostdoc @EvaAlisic It depends how you analyse/write up the Literature Review.
RhythmicDeets   Can be valid research too. #PhDChat                                                                      7/3/2012 9:03

                @hanimutm @RhythmicDeets @EvaAlisic Exactly. The abstract would probably be rejected outright in

                @EvaAlisic @KezNoo The Fulbright Scholars program? I know that funds US/Australian travel both

EvaAlisic       Now that is a real pro tip! By @orientalhotel: Learn about funding via people's online CV's #phdchat     7/3/2012 9:03
drdzwol         #phdchat @EvaAlisic thanks evac it has been really useful tonight for me. Things to think about          7/3/2012 9:03
                #phdchat I write 'fan' emails to authors of articles I'm impressed with, introducing myself. Have made
lindathestar    friends thus way #networkingtip                                                                          7/3/2012 9:02
                @EvaAlisic @RhythmicDeets Also highly unlikely that an abstract like that would even get approved for
BoredPostdoc    presentation by organisers. #phdchat                                                                     7/3/2012 9:02
                @KezNoo And I have heard of the American-Australian foundation/association, but haven't looked into
EvaAlisic       it.. #phdchat                                                                                            7/3/2012 9:02

hanimutm        @RhythmicDeets @BoredPostdoc @EvaAlisic #PhDChat. Most conferences want data to b presentd               7/3/2012 9:01

                Have to leave #phdchat. Have to go back to my day job that pays the bills. Just used up a lunch break
ScientistMags   for this.                                                                                                7/3/2012 9:00
                Another way I found funding was looking at the CVs/past grants lists of people who work in my area.
orientalhotel   Lots of that online now #phdchat                                                                         7/3/2012 8:59

drdzwol         myself :)                                                                                                   7/3/2012 8:44
riotk           @orientalhotel @EvaAlisic Impressive. How did you find the sources? #phdchat                                7/3/2012 8:44
                Often foreign embassy websites will list funding/study opps for students e.g. this is french one
orientalhotel #phdchat                                                                               7/3/2012 8:44
                @thesiswhisperer We'll miss you!! Have a good trip!! Maybe we're still going when you arrive ;)

riotk             @thesiswhisperer @rmit Hooray for 37! Also just, thank you. I'm a big #fan #phdchat                        7/3/2012 8:43
                  I got my first postdoc by talking to someone at a conference. They called me 3 months later and asked
BoredPostdoc      me if I wanted a job. #phdchat                                                                             7/3/2012 8:43
                  I also found that there are quite a few smaller funds who want to help out students to go abroad
EvaAlisic         (Dutch though..) #phdchat                                                                                  7/3/2012 8:43
                  One third of graduates working in low-skilled jobs: I wonder what the figure is for
keith_wilson      PhD graduates? #highered #phdchat                                                                          7/3/2012 8:43
                  There's an expectation in my field that you'll attend at least 1 overseas confy during your PhD
BoredPostdoc      candidature. Make the most of it! #phdchat                                                                 7/3/2012 8:42
EvaAlisic         My funding tip would also be to try several sources @orientalhotel #phdchat                                7/3/2012 8:42
                  lol! RT @thesiswhisperer: AmandaMichelle I was born in Tasmania! Lovely place. Scar where they took

                  @ScientistMags switcheroo - I am trying to do less industry/government conferences and more

EvaAlisic         @jochau Chatting with incoming students and academics is a good approach yes! #phdchat                     7/3/2012 8:41
                  @EvaAlisic My best funding tip was not to try and get all the money from one source. I used 6 grants
orientalhotel     for my first o/s trip. #phdchat                                                                            7/3/2012 8:41
                  @riotk average age of PhD students @rmit is 37 though, you are not alone with these issues at least

EvaAlisic         @cdtavijit Wow, now that is an example of being determined! #phdchat                                       7/3/2012 8:40
                  #phdchat I find it helps to talk to OS academics and students who come to visit- they can link you up

                  @riotk same - I remember asking about doing a PhD at uni orientation day and being laughed at

EvaAlisic         Should we be talking some more about funding? Or other questions about getting abroad? #phdchat           7/3/2012 8:38
                  #phdchat what I find most difficult is connecting to consultants who write in your field. Don't want to
drdzwol           be pushy                                                                                                  7/3/2012 8:38
                  @thesiswhisperer If you're THAT cashed up, drop in on conferences that attract industry and
ScientistMags     government interest as well as academic #phdchat                                                          7/3/2012 8:38
                  @thesiswhisperer And remember...Qantas Club membership can be a tax deduction if your travel is
BoredPostdoc      "work related". #phdchat                                                                                  7/3/2012 8:38

                  @EvaAlisic As you said, adding the country+young researcher is a great tip too =D And I try to have the

                  My top tip. If you are cashed up enough and doing lots of travel, check out special deals from Unis - like

                  @orientalhotel that's a common reason I've heard. Not seen as useful or important. The point is, it's

                  @cdtavijit Nice, makes me think of the one I used in Australia "opportunity for young researcher?" or

                  @MickMorrison There can be many reasons why people don't take to social media. Privacy concerns,

                  @ScientistMags @SSTVW I second that - sometimes finding the best lists is hard - insider knowledge.

                  @dadaisland it can take the form of both - trading papers with people a good way to build conversation

reneewebs         in person rather than via email #phdchat                                                                  7/3/2012 8:19
                  @thesiswhisperer @reneewebs Yes can be v formal, and also I find European academics sometimes
orientalhotel     much less engaged with email #phdchat                                                                     7/3/2012 8:19
                  @riotk that's great - and probably the kind of person you want on your panel too: approachable
thesiswhisperer   #phdchat                                                                                                  7/3/2012 8:19
MickMorrison      @riotk that's great, more students should do that. It can be intimidating asking though! #phdchat         7/3/2012 8:18
                  I'm in my first year and was worried about hierarchies and doing the wrong thing without knowing I
riotk             was doing it #phdchat                                                                                     7/3/2012 8:18
                  @reneewebs @orientalhotel I did not know that #phdchat - but I always use honorifics the first time I
thesiswhisperer   email someone and see how they reply                                                                      7/3/2012 8:18
                  First time #phdchat here. Newish tweeter too. How to find the right conferences? Beyond conference

drdzwol           #phdchat thanks guys still new on this thing. Enjoyed eva's video on using tweet                          7/3/2012 8:18
EvaAlisic         @riotk That's a great example :-) well done! #phdchat                                                     7/3/2012 8:17
EvaAlisic         @thesiswhisperer agreed! #phdchat                                                                         7/3/2012 8:17
                  I recently approached a senior academic re a panel proposal through email and she agreed to join my
riotk             panel #phdchat                                                                                                 7/3/2012 8:17
EvaAlisic         @reneewebs I think I would always start formally yes #phdchat                                                  7/3/2012 8:16
                  @thesiswhisperer Normally I will google site specific search and related keywords like collaboration,
cdtavijit         international, exchange etc #phdchat                                                                           7/3/2012 8:16
                  @drdzwol @evaalisic it's amazing what people will offer if you just ask I find (fyi, if you include
thesiswhisperer   #phdchat others can 'see' you)                                                                                 7/3/2012 8:16
                  @orientalhotel agree, European academics usually prefer to be addressed 'Prof, Dr, etc" whereas
reneewebs         Aussies are cool with first names #PhDchat                                                                     7/3/2012 8:15
                  Anyone who felt shy at first and overcame it wants to share tips? I think I would always look very
EvaAlisic         seriously at enthusiastic email #phdchat                                                                       7/3/2012 8:15

                  You just have to try and stay in the same circles as best you can, attend the same conferences,
MickMorrison      seminars etc if possible (2/2) #phdchat                                                                        7/3/2012 8:13
                  #phdchat @thesiswhisperer @EvaAlisic ... I have used twitter to do that too ... cool way to engage with
njhoughton        an abstract of the abstract !                                                                                  7/3/2012 8:13
                  @ScientistMags I use twitter like that all the time. Thanks to twitter I had great breakfast companions
thesiswhisperer   today at ANU :-) #phdchat                                                                                      7/3/2012 8:13
                  I also think that academics really do like it when a PhD student is pro-active about visiting their group (I
EvaAlisic         do)! #phdchat                                                                                                  7/3/2012 8:13
                  Re intros be aware of different hierarchies in diff academic settings. I found europe more conservative
orientalhotel     & sometimes email not ideal #phdchat                                                                           7/3/2012 8:12
                  IMHO, a supervisor should support PhDs with making connections, they should link you to others
MickMorrison      (despite being busy!) (1/2) #phdchat                                                                           7/3/2012 8:12
EvaAlisic         @ScientistMags Great tip! #phdchat                                                                             7/3/2012 8:11
thesiswhisperer   @cdtavijit where would you find such information usually? Departmental websites? #phdchat                      7/3/2012 8:11
                  @thesiswhisperer I've used Twitter as a means of networking before arriving at a conference and avoid
ScientistMags     early awkwardness. #phdchat                                                                               7/3/2012 8:10
                  @orientalhotel You know, it's never occurred to me to do that! But it's an excellent idea, esp if you
thesiswhisperer   need them in a hurry #phdchat                                                                             7/3/2012 8:10
                  #phdchat @npmaven ... I have journals from 2 yrs ago that are only now becoming useful - at the time
njhoughton        full of weird 'stuff' ( and dead-ends)                                                                    7/3/2012 8:10
                  Yes good points @cdtavijit and @orientalhotel! When you do 'cold' emails: do them very carefully,

                  @EvaAlisic I wonder how many PhD students feel confident to reach out via email? I can imagine some
thesiswhisperer   feel shy... #phdchat                                                                                      7/3/2012 8:09
                  If your supervisor is enthusiastic, they can help with introductions. But also other seniors at your
EvaAlisic         department may help with that #phdchat                                                                    7/3/2012 8:08
                  @thesiswhisperer for me I try to search for their past records. If they have hosted someone there's a
cdtavijit         chance. Then often cold email #phdchat                                                                    7/3/2012 8:08
                  From facebook Z. Doyle suggests: "a letter of introduction gets you access to libraries you wouldn't be

                  Maybe a good tip is: Which international people do you already know? Did you exchange emails about
EvaAlisic         literature with someone? #phdchat                                                                         7/3/2012 8:06
                  conferences, including student conferences, are very important for #PhD networking (I hope you don't
MickMorrison      mind me jumping in!) #phdchat                                                                              7/3/2012 8:06
                  Actually generally did my introductions 'cold' , myself! But in an incremental way: which started with
EvaAlisic         chats at conferences #phdchat                                                                              7/3/2012 8:05
                  I did a number of things: thought about academics & research groups I really liked first..then chatted
EvaAlisic         with a few (senior) people.. #phdchat                                                                      7/3/2012 8:04
                  I'd imagine that many people find the idea of approaching people at other places to host them
