Changes in Academic Career Dynamics in Germany

Wissenschaftliche Karrieredynamiken in Deutschland im Zeitablauf

WISKIDZ is currently in its second funding phase, which focuses on career trajectories outside the university system. Our analyses are based on linking dissertation data with information about subsequent employment.
