Postdoc Survey

In order to develop quality standards for the postdoctoral training phase, the University set up a working group in autumn 2010. With the aim to provide empirical facts to support the committee's work, a survey was conducted among postdocs to assess their actual conditions of work and research and their professional perspectives.

The results of this survey are summarised in the postdoctoral report titled "On the Situation of Postdoctoral Researchers at Friedrich Schiller University of Jena" (in German). It formed the basis for the "Recommendations for Improving the Professional Situation of Postdoctoral Researchers at Friedrich Schiller University of Jena". You will find the full report here (in German).
