Employment and Career Development
Eurodoc’s Career Development working group assumes that doctoral careers in Europe become increasingly more varied. Over half of doctoral graduates are now leaving academia immediately following graduation and many more after initial postdoc positions. The doctorate is not the developmental milestone in academia that it used to be. Many countries know further qualifications (such as habilitation, junior professorship, higher doctorates, Docent) to prepare young researchers for academia, which has implications for institutions in providing access to training.
