The Post Doctorate Compensation Survey

​Summary and list of data reported for Pearl Meyer's Post Doc survey.

About the Survey

Pearl Meyer offers compensation surveys covering your organization’s unique employee population segments. We have worked closely with the Post Doctorate Advisory Board to develop a survey focused on this unique category of employee – those in Post Doc assignments. The Post Doctorate Survey provides you with the most important compensation and employment practices information relative to Post Doc employees.

For your information, a Post Doc employee is defined as an individual holding a doctoral degree, received within the past five years, who has been awarded a fellowship, traineeship, or temporary employment for study/work at a post doctorate level, with an expected assignment length of one year or more. This individual will pursue a full-time program of advanced research and/or scholarly training with the expectation of, and the opportunity for, collaborative and independent research and publication of findings and acquisition of the professional skills needed to pursue a career path of their choosing.
