Resource List for Help
Not every day of your career is going to be a good day. And sometimes, there might be a very bad day, because of work, because of co-workers, or because of personal life. You do not have to go through these times alone – there are people at each university whose job it is to help. The links below should provide you with a starting point to finding the help you need, to get back to having good days. You can also contact Dr. Nadine Afram (within the NCCR) to help you navigate the links below, or to report a broken link.
(Ombudsperson: An ombudsperson provides a safe, comfortable, and confidential environment for you to discuss your concerns or complaints outside formal university channels. The Ombudsman cannot impose solutions, but identifies options and strategies for resolution.)
Getting a PhD is not just hard work. It can be hard on your health.
