The First Edition of the Physics PhD Digest E-Newsletter
Welcome to the VERY first edition of the Physics PhD graduate program newsletter, The Ph
igest! Instead of sending individual emails every time something comes across our desk, we will compile news, announcements, professional development, employment opportunities and upcoming events in a streamlined email newsletter. We anticipate there will be enough content to send The Ph
approximately every other week, but we will send them no more than weekly when there are relevant items for you all. Of course, if timely items need to be sent to you before a full version of The Ph
igest is ready to go, we will send individual emails, but the hope is to collect everything in one place for you to minimize clutter in your inbox. We'll also be archiving all the emails
on our website. A big thank you to Sarah Perdue, Director of Communications, and Coco Kinzley for all of their help in making this happen and their continued support of this effort. We hope you enjoy the content below!
Date: September 28–October 23, 2020
