Today I signed a contract with the university. I now officially have a scholarship to continue by PhD!
Really, it’s more like a fellowship, there is a teaching obligation (which I’ll start after the northern summer) and what I’ve signed is a work contract.
In any event, I’m obviously really happy about this. I’ve been doing the PhD for two and a half years already, so I probably won’t keep going for the possible four years of the contract, but it’s going to make a big difference.
Tomorrow, when Andrea gets back from Wisconsin, I think we’ll have a little celebration.
