URL:onlinephd.org
  • Wide variety of resources for many career stages
  • None

Whether you find yourself contemplating going to graduate school to earn a science Ph.D., are in the thick of your Ph.D. work already, or are a postdoctoral fellow, Online PhD has a number of resources that are pertinent to you. The website brings together a large amount of information collected from a variety of sources in order to help site visitors navigate the entire Ph.D. process. The site’s content is broadly organized into eight pages on the site: resources for scientists, current issues, outside academia, postdoc resources, employment and tenure, professional skills, organizations, and Ph.D. blogs. While not all of those topics (or even getting a Ph.D., for that matter) are unique to science, the website and most of the resources are geared toward scientists. These resources include everything from articles on topics such as mentor-mentee relationships and work-life balance, to links to job-listing websites.
