Survey of the Charité and DZHW on your PhD/doctorate
The Charité and the German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies (DZHW) are currently jointly surveying doctoral students and doctorate holders on study conditions, career plans as well as their living conditions in general. The survey is part of the National Academics Panel Study (Nacaps), a longitudinal study aiming at better understanding career trajectories of doctoral students and doctorate holders. You can find important information about Nacaps in this flyer.
