This publication marks an important milestone for the work of the Leibniz PhD Network:
For the first time, we provide and analyze detailed data on the situation of doctoral researchers across all sections of the Leibniz Association. Among else we describe the doctoral researchers’ current working situations, opportunities for career development and experiences with supervision as well as work-life balance. The Leibniz PhD Network designed, conducted, and evaluated the survey in which over 1,000 doctoral researchers participated.
To physically unite all forces and proceed in large steps with the evaluation of the Leibniz PhD Network’s survey data, the Survey working group met in Berlin for a retreat at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW) on the 17th and 18th of August. The survey, with over 1,000 respondents, gives a first comprehensive overview of the situation of the doctoral researchers in the Leibniz Association.
The working group members have set the ambitious goals of delivering a first report by mid-September to the Leibniz Association and discuss the most important results at the General Assembly of the Leibniz PhD Network.
