Improving skills and career possibilities during PhD
Hi, I've just got my Master's Degree in Molecular Biology in Italy, and I've felt quite uncertain what to do after. I might go for a PhD, but I feel a career in SI would be a suitable alternative for me. I've always been drawing since I can remember, using many different techniques and gaining also some expertise in 2D and 3D digital drawing, and scientific subjects (especially biological ones) are among my favourite.
I know I surely need more practice and training to improve my skills. I was wondering, in case I start a PhD (my most plausible destinations being England or Finland), what I could do during that period to still have the chance to possibly purchase a career in SI when I finish, including keeping drawing and training my skills on my own.
