The aim of the project „Functions and Consequences of Unemployment in Researchers' Careers“ is to explore the – field specific – impact of unemployment in researchers’ careers on research practices, the ways in which research activities are continued during unemployment, and on the continuation of careers. We will identify the conditions under which a successful continuation of an academic career is possible despite unemployment, and the mechanisms that link unemployment and the subsequent research career.
Tasks include participation in the conceptual preparation, conduct and analysis of the planned empirical studies (qualitative interviews, qualitative content analysis) in Germany. It is possible to develop a dissertation topic on the basis of the data collected in the empirical studies. Further information on the project can be obtained from Jochen Gläser (Jochen.Glaser@tu-berlin.de).
