The illustrated guide to a Ph.D

My brilliant scientist friend Evan shared this link which I thought was just too good to not share and should be appreciated by those of us who spent some time in academia: Matt Might, an assistant professor at University of Utah, created this hilarious “illustrated guide to a Ph.D” to help explain to “a fresh batch of Ph.D. students what a Ph.D. is.” The circle represents all of human knowledge and each colored ring symbolizes the level of education. Check out the full infographic for the payoff.
