In Australia, getting between AU$19000 and AU$25000 tax free per annum in molecular biology.

Is pretty good, but could be better!!

in the uk, it depends who your sponsor is.

If you're doing your PhD in something that you have proposed yourself, you have to find a supervisior who will take you on, and find all your own funding. Fees are around £4000 a year.

My PhD is sponsored by the EPSRC (engineering and physical sciences research council) so i get a 'stipend' every year that covers my living allowances, and the council pays my fees. Mine is about £12600 a year, its tax free which is a benefit, but stipends of up to 18000 a year aren't unheard of if your research in industry linked. Mine is cross disciplinary, so there are more opporunities for funding than others.

if you study in england, just make sure you do something useful and find a good sponsor!!

Florida Atlantic University: 20k, but you pay for health insurance and tuition
University of Miami: 25k, tuition and health insurance included
Albert Einstein College of Medicine: 28k, same as with UM
University of East Anglia: 14 pounds, no tuition, state health insurance
Hungary: generally 80k forints, no tuition, state health insurance

Here in south carolina most advisors cover tuition and on top of that we are given $20k to live off of. I teach an extra section of lab and get paid $27k right now in addition to tuition paid. Living expenses in south carolina are low as well, so I am living very comfortably for a phd student!

Ph.D Doctor of Philosophy –
Discuss and post questions about the Ph.D Doctor of Philosophy degree

My opinion.
Why we don’t have Philosophy of Physics ?
==========.
There is Classic Mechanic and Quantum Mechanic,
but there isn’t Philosophy of Physics. Why ?
=======.
1.
In thermodynamics particles are "mathematical points",
2.
In QT particles are "mathematical points",
3.
In SRT particles are points.
4.
In QED particles are points.
5.
The energy, impulse, linear and angular momentum in physics
is also a " mathematical point".
6.
Then one "mathematical point" ( particle) interacts with another
"mathematical point" (energy, impulse . .etc ) the physicists say:
" The Quantum theory and micro-world are paradoxical."
===============================.
Physics: Particle and its shadow Math Point.
Our Earth moves straight and rotates around itself.
Let us take an infinite small point and suggested
it also has these two kinds of movement.
What will be happen ?
1
An infinite small point moves straight and its trajectory
shows us a straight line ( SRT)
2
An infinite small point changes its straight direction
( for example near Sun) and its trajectory curves ( GRT)
3
An infinite small point can rotate around itself. (?!)
Here is hidden a puzzle. (!)
Stupid question:
Does anybody ever draw point in his life?
!!!
Take pen and make point.
What do you see ?
Point, - you say.
And I see point, which has geometrical form of circle ( c/d=pi=3,14).
And even the smallest point will have geometrical form of circle
And even an Infinite Smallest Point will have geometrical form of circle
4
The SRT talks about an infinite small point which moves
in the Emptiness. (!) Which geometrical form can have this point ?
The Third law of Thermodynamics says in the Emptiness (!)
( in the Cold Emptiness ) an infinite small point cannot have volume.
It means an infinite small point must have geometrical form of circle
5
According to SRT this circle – particle cannot be firm,
it must be elastic. (!)
6.
In 1915 Einstein connected Mass with Geometry.
Maybe now, in 2010, somebody will try to understand the interaction
between an Infinite Small Particle and Geometry.
============================.
P.S.
In an Italian railway station.
It was more then two hours 'till the departure of the train.
I went to the café and ordered a cup of coffee. Soon two men
and a very beautiful, slim woman took a place opposite me.
They ordered something to drink and one of the man opened
a case of violin and took out a bow. He began to explain
something about the bow, carefully and gently touching it.
Then another man took this bow and also enthusiastically
continued this conversation. For half an hour the bow was passed
from one hands to another followed with enthusiastic discussion.
And the beautiful woman looked at bow, at both these men without
saying a word. For half an hour I watched this group with admiration
and excitement. What a class! What a cultural level!
What a beauty!
And now let's imagine the bow pressed into a "mathematical point"
and the musicians speak seriously about a "mathematical point"
which must produce a sound from a violin.
Everybody will say I describe an idiotic situation.
Well, I agree.
But why doesn't anybody say it to physicists when they observe
an elementary particle as a "mathematical point" , without paying
attention to its geometrical form.
#
If physicists think about a particle as a " mathematical point"
the result can be only paradoxical. And I am sure if somebody
takes into consideration the geometrical form of particle the
paradoxes in Physics will disappear.
We will have Philosophy of Physics.
#
When Feynman said "I think I can safely say that nobody
understands quantum mechanics." it was only because nobody took
into consideration the geometrical form of a particle.
==========.
Best wishes.
Israel Sadovnik Socratus
===============.
=============================.

~£13000 in the UK ($18500) but thats not counting fee's whcih are usually about 2500-3500 so that's pushing it into the 20k zone. I voted 15-20k though
