Welcome to the demo-site, please login using one of the 16 trial accounts, user name trial@xxx where the domain name xxx corresponds to one of the first 16 universities on our list (e.g. trial@monash.edu, trial@uq.edu.au or any other Australian domain). Password abcdef or use "Forgot password"

This is a sandbox environment, if you have come here by mistake, the production site can be found here. The main differences between the real and the demo-site are:
  • All e-mails get diverted to mailinator (e.g. p.parker@psu.edu -> p.parker@mailinator.com)
  • The server is wiped every day at 6:00 AM Middle European Time
  • Due to memory constraints, the researcher database only features 500 entries
Welcome to myphdidea.org! We are an online publishing platform founded with the purpose of connecting students at Master level with professors. For students, we hope to encourage a pro-active attitude towards graduate studies, where creativity and developing ideas of your own count more than career-minded pursuit of formal qualifications. For professors, we hope to give due credit to anyone dedicated to opening up science to new participants, on terms that are not basically one-sided.

If you have got an idea for a PhD project, please become a member and upload it! You can then request reviews from professors; both your idea and the expert reviews will be given a permanent digital home on our site. Our crowd-sourced student editor system assures a minimum quality level for all uploads, and respectful treatment of professors' time. Though aimed particularly at students in engineering and natural science, anyone with 2 years of study and an institutional email account can register.

If you are a first time visitor, the best point to start is the FAQ section.
