National Postdoc Survey

Greetings Postdocs!

The National Postdoc Survey Team would like to say a huge thank you to the nearly 6,300 of you who responded to the 2019 National Postdoc Survey!

Data collection is complete and analyses are underway! Check back for updates in 2020!

2019 National Postdoc Survey

Thank you for visiting the official website of the 2019 National Postdoctoral Survey. This survey was conceived and developed by postdocs to benefit all members of the postdoctoral community, and is a follow-up to the 2016 National Postdoc Survey, published by McConnell et al. This survey is meant to capture the experiences of classical postdoc fellows and scholars in temporary training positions, post-PhD.

The information collected in this survey will facilitate identification of important issues within the postdoctoral community, informing and equipping those who advocate for policy on behalf of postdocs everywhere.
