Career Decisions and Career Paths of Young Researchers


Our interdisciplinary research project, “Career decisions and career paths of young researchers: An interdisciplinary, longitudinal project on the interplay between contextual demands and personal characteristics” (funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research) has started in 2013 and aims at:

  • a better understanding of careers of doctoral students and postdocs from the STEM-fields within both academic and industrial fields by using a longitudinal design
  • providing diagnostic tools (e.g., questionnaires, behavioral measures) to be applicable in career counseling as well as in personnel selection and development

Project partners are from different disciplines:


Christian L. Burk und Bettina S. Wiese
