In the first edition, panelists will discuss the challenges of pursuing a PhD, dealing with stress, and career planning. The session will be live from 15:00 to 17:00 on October 29 on ScienceNet.cn.
Panelists for this edition include two influential Chinese experts on academia: Zhang Haixia from Beijing University and Ma Zhen from Fudan University.

Science Talks is a non-profit community initiative by CACTUS that was started in Japan in 2013. It serves as a platform for continuous exchange among academic researchers, science policymakers, government representatives, and their stakeholders (private sector and non-profit organisations). Science Talks will expand to China this year with this collaboration with ScienceNet.
