Screening of The PhD Movie

UiODoc is proud to announce a public screening of "Piled Higher and Deeper" aka "The PhD movie 1". This is a movie inspired and written by Jorge Cham of After the movie we'll offer pizza and soft drinks.

We will screen the movie at the big screen of Auditorium 1 at Vilhelm Bjerknes' hus (UiO Science Library). You can see the movie trailer, and here is the synopsis from IMDB:

Life (or the lack thereof) in Academia. 'Piled Higher and Deeper (PHD)' is a live-action adaptation of the popular web comic strip by Jorge Cham. With humor and heart, the film follows the personal journeys of two graduate students as they struggle to find their place in the confusing (and often hilarious) world of high-stakes Academic research. Along the way, they learn that the academic journey is as much about finding truth in books and experiments as it is about finding truth in yourself. Filmed on location at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), the film features real scientists and researchers (including two MacArthur 'genius' award recipients).

Everyone is welcome!

After the movie we'll be providing FREE pizza and soft drinks! Feel free to join us and mingle with your fellow researchers! If you would like to have pizza, please register your interest. Note: registration for pizza will close at 12:00 on 09.03.2016.
