Career Trajectories, Outputs and Success of Doctorate Holders

Course objectives

The overall objective of the Summer School is to support the research into research careers using data sets provided by RISIS. It will provide PhD students with feedback for their dissertation projects, support ongoing research projects on careers (e. g. PhD thesis or postdoc projects) with data, outline suitable data sources and advance the theoretical knowledge via discussions and exchange.

The Summer School will also make a broad range of RISIS facilities visible to a wider audience. The facilities will be presented in an integrated way, which means that the potential for multi-level analysis, which lies in the combination of different data sets, will be explicitly promoted and illustrated. The two demonstrator examples developed in the RCCF will serve as illustrative use cases for this purpose.
