Data is the best way to start a good discussion. Therefore, the Leibniz PhD Network has founded the WG Survey, to monitor and understand the situation of doctoral researchers in the Leibniz association. Together with our partners in N2 we have developed a harmonized questionnaire and conducted the first joint survey in 2019. The data has be published and we are now in discussions with the Leibniz association on how to improve the situation of doctoral researchers.
We are always looking for new team members. You don´t need to know how to code. A majority of the work is evaluating the data and writing about it, a skill all doctoral research’s have. If you want to join just write an email to the working group coordinators: Nathalie John (email@example.com) and Jacob L. Gorenflos López (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Currently the working group is subdivided into three subgroup:
- Institute specific data analysis
- What influence do graduate schools have on a PhD?
- Presentation of the Survey data
We will be presenting the Survey data of the 2019 Leibniz PhD Net Survey online on the 15th of December at 2 pm. More details will follow soon.
