Investing for Early Career PhDs (Video Course)

taught by Emily Roberts

Course description

This course teaches graduate students, postdocs, and PhDs in their first Real Jobs how to passively invest with confidence. Passive investing is the most effective, least expensive, and most time-efficient method of investing, and it's perfect for busy PhDs(-in-training) who don't want a second job managing their investments but also don't want to sacrifice returns.

The benefits you will receive by working through this course are:

  • Knowledge of investment vehicles and strategies
  • A determination of your readiness to invest
  • The ability to pick an account type, brokerage firm, and investments
  • Confidence that you have made the best investing choice for you
  • Not having to spend a bunch of time managing your investments
  • Freedom from analysis paralysis!

Notice that I did not say: Make tons of money right away; get rich quick. It's not that kind of course!

The course will launch on April 27, 2018 with eight modules and will be priced at $249 ($199 is the pre-launch price). Based on feedback from students inside the course, I will continue to add modules at no additional cost to current students.

If you are one of the first 20 students to register, you will also receive a free 25-minute coaching session with me upon completion of the course.

My mission is to inspire and empower early-career PhDs to make the most of their money. I engage with students and postdocs through the Personal Finance for PhDs talks and my websites, Grad Student Finances and PhD Stipends. I started delivering seminars about personal finance for PhDs-in-training shortly after my PhD defense in fall 2014.

My passion for personal finance is rooted in my experience as a grad student, and I speak to my audiences as a more experienced and knowledgable peer. When I first started in graduate school, I knew that living well on a grad student stipend would be quite challenging, so I continuously learned and refined my money management strategies throughout my PhD.

I received a PhD in biomedical engineering from Duke University in 2014 and a BS in physics from Harvey Mudd College in 2007. I live in Seattle, WA with my husband, Kyle, who also holds a PhD from Duke University, and our daughter.
