Yes, we did it! After a hundreds of working hours we proudly present the final report of the first Leibniz PhD survey. More than 1,000 doctoral researchers participated in the survey launched by the Leibniz PhD Network in November 2017. Overall, we achieved a high response rate of 40,5% indicating an overall interest in the topic. The analysis represents the first detailed and quantitative description about the working conditions of doctoral researchers in more than 90 Leibniz Institutes and Research Museums. We thank the authors, the members of the survey working group and all people involved for their commitment and valuable work in the development, conduction and analysis of the survey. We invite you to study the results in detail within the full report or its executive summary. On this site, we will also present insights into the data on a weekly basis in our “Chart of the week” series.
