I've just accepted an offer to do a 4-year PhD at King's College London, which is funded by Cancer Research UK. I'll be working in the lab of the Department of Immunology, examining whether dendritic cells can be used in tumour therapy. This very much falls into my field of interest and I'm very thrilled about this fantastic opportunity, but there is the fear of the PhD taking over my life once I get started. Will I have time to keep up with what's happening in the world? Will I forget my spouse's name? How do I manage not to drown in the workload which I expect to be enourmous and manage my life?
I would very much appreciate advice on how to sustain a satisfactory quality of life as a PhD student - can anyone help me avoid some of the traps many before me have fallen into?
