Invitation to participate in the ESF-Science Connect career tracking survey of doctorate holders

CALL FOR 2018 CAREER TRACKING SURVEY OF DOCTORATE HOLDERS

UNIVERSITIES AND RESEARCH PERFORMING ORGANISATIONS
ARE INVITED TO TAKE PART IN THIS SURVEY


ESF-Science Connect invites expressions of interest from universities and non-university research performing organisations, to take part in the next ESF Career Tracking Survey of Doctorate Holders. This project builds on the 2017 Career Tracking Survey of Doctorate Holders , as well as on the earlier work of the ESF Member Organisation Forum ‘European Alliance on Research Career Development’ ( EARCD ) and on the ESF 2015 pilot study Career Tracking Survey of Doctorate Holders .

WHAT IS INVOLVED ?

A peer reviewed online questionnaire will be used in order to provide participating organisations from across Europe with anonymised data on their doctorate graduates, including their employment situation and skills utilisation patterns, satisfaction levels, mobility and relevant demographic data. The survey will explore doctorate career trajectories up to seven years after PhD completion.

WHY SHOULD YOUR ORGANISATION PARTICIPATE ?

  • To better understand the occupational and mobility patterns as well as satisfaction levels of your doctorate graduates
  • To collect data for your monitoring and planning purposes to improve doctoral education and career advice
  • To take part in a joint initiative and discussions on standards, measures and intended outcomes of doctoral training schemes and career development

ONLINE QUESTIONNAIRE

  • Developed by the ESF-Science Connect team composed of Higher Education researchers, survey methodologists and project coordinator
  • Bottom-up approach: partner organisations are actively involved in adapting the questionnaire to their needs
  • User-friendly with around 40-45 concise questions in the core questionnaire, with up to five organisation-specific questions

DELIVERABLES

  • Organisational reports for each partner, including anonymised data on their doctorate holder population
  • General report with aggregated trends across all participating organisations
  • Possibility of supplementary comparative studies among interested partners (inter-institutional benchmarking)

PARTNER RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Prepare a contact list of doctorate holders for the agreed period after PhD completion, including first and last names, a valid email address and the date of PhD completion
  • Provide feedback on the methodology, questionnaire, analysis and progress of the project
  • Make a financial contribution of funding towards the project

INDICATIVE TIMELINE

The overall project duration will be 12 months. Consortium building will take place during February-April. Survey launch is planned for October 2018.
