PhDs in LA was founded in 2013 by Dr. Karen Crozer and is a support group for doctoral students and graduates in the greater Los Angeles area.

Since August 2013, this group has held writing, networking, and social meetups in West LA and has been primarily organized by Dr. Julia Raz.  In November 2014, Dr. Raz took over as the sole organizer of the group. The current organizer, Whitney Burke, PhD Candidate, has since taken over the role as of April 2016.

Whether you are in a Ph.D. program, have recently graduated from one, or completed a degree many years ago, this group can help you meet engaging scholars from all fields and find colleagues who can write with you, help you revise your CV, and laugh with you about the quirks of the academic life over a nice glass of wine.

All universities, majors, and statuses of Ph.D. completion are welcomed.

The road to a Ph.D. and academic job can be taxing, but you don't need to do it alone.
