Survey on the work situation of Early Career Researchers at the University of Göttingen under pandemic conditions

Repost from the Newsletter of the University – UniNews 12.2 ( 11.12.2020)

The Diversity Research Institute and the Center of Methods in Social Sciences at Göttingen University are currently preparing a study on the work situation of Early Career Researchers in pandemic times.

The link to participate in the survey has been sent to all Early Career Researchers.

The aim is to identify possible effects of the coronavirus pandemic in reinforcing inequalities regarding equal opportunities and compatibility of academic studies/research/work and personal/family life. If such effects are identified, the data will be used to shape targeted measures to counteract them.

We hope and ask for broad participation in the survey.

If you are an Early Career Researcher at the University of Göttingen and have not received an invitation to participate in the survey, please contact Stephan Schlosser at
