Postdoc parents: the National Postdoc Association is soliciting your opinion on a new survey

Are you a postdoc with children born during your postdoc years? Your participation is requested in a survey on postdocs’ experiences as new parents.  Researchers at U.C. Hastings’ Center for WorkLife Law are surveying postdocs who welcomed a child into their home during their postdoc years as part of an effort to advance institutional support for postdoc parents. The survey results will be used, in partnership with the National Postdoctoral Association, to develop and advocate for best practices to support postdocs who are new parents.

If you became a parent while a postdoc, you can participate in this survey so that the world can know more about the experiences of postdoc parents—and how to better support and advocate for your needs. All responses will be kept anonymous unless you explicitly consent to reveal identifying information in the survey.
