(Blog post on behalf of Richard Freeman, UCL, acting for ESRC).

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) are keen to understand the experiences and issues faced by early-career social scientists. Therefore, they have commissioned a survey from researchers at the UCL Institute of Education to enable improvements to be made to existing support for early-career social scientists before, during and after their doctoral studies. Since we do not wish to predefine exactly who is an early-career social scientist we intend leaving it to potential respondents to self-identify themselves as part of this group, as long as they have a doctorate or equivalent.

The survey can be accessed via and it should take no more than 20 minutes to complete.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact a member of the research team (details below). Many thanks in advance for all your help.
