Nature – Postdoctoral Research Survey

We hope everyone is staying safe. Please take a moment to take the following survey about postdocs during the coronavirus https://go.nature.com/3fDup2u.


From the original article (https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-01863-y):


Nature is encouraging postdoctoral researchers working in academia in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to respond to its first-ever survey dedicated entirely to postdocs, a crucial but often marginalized segment of the scientific workforce. The survey, now accessible at https://go.nature.com/3fDup2u, addresses issues at the heart of the postdoctoral experience, including job satisfaction, career progression, working hours and financial compensation.


The survey — created in partnership with Shift Learning, a London-based research consultancy — is available in English, Chinese, French, Portuguese and Spanish. “We’re hoping to hear from postdoctoral researchers from around the world,” says Karen Kaplan, the Washington DC-based senior editor of the Nature Careers section. “These scientists help form the foundation of academic research, but they don’t always get the recognition they deserve. We’re eager to hear what they have on their minds, especially during these difficult times.”


Closing Date: July 27, 2020
