Statistics of the next generation of university teachers

Survey on the next generation of university teachers

Postdocs, senior postdocs, habilitations, junior professorships, junior research group leaders and the proportion of women among the professors

 

The GDCh collects data every two years with the support of the dean's offices of the chemical faculties at German universities to create the survey on post-doctoral qualifications, junior professorships and the proportion of women among professors. From 2020 (survey period 2019), additional data on postdocs 1 and senior postdocs 2 as well as junior research group leaders will be collected.

At the end of 2004, the GDCh collected data on post-doctoral qualifications, post-doctoral candidates and junior professorships at German universities for the first time. The proportion of female C3 and C4 professors was also asked. The results were published in the following April issue (2005, 2007, 2009 etc.) of the Nachrichten aus der Chemie.


We would like to thank all of the contact persons involved for their support.
Without you, we couldn't have been doing this survey every two years since 2004!

1 Postdoc in the sense of this survey: Academic staff who have less than two years of research experience as a postdoc (this does not have to be at their own university)
2 Senior Postdoc in the sense of this survey: Scientific staff who can already demonstrate more than two years of research experience as a postdoc (this does not have to be done at their own university)

Results of the 2019 survey

At the end of 2019, there were fewer post-doctoral candidates at German universities than two years ago. For the first time, the number of postdocs, senior postdocs and junior research group leaders was recorded. The number of junior professors is stagnating.
The proportion of women among professors continues to show a positive development. Despite a slight increase, however, this does not yet correspond to the proportion of women among the undergraduate or graduate students.

The complete results of the eighth survey can be found in the "Nachrichten aus der Chemie" issue 10/20 and here as a pdf.
