Dartmouth College Postdoctoral Association Survey (2015)

The purpose of this survey is to assess the relevance and effectiveness of the DCPDA, in addition to identifying relevant issues/concerns of postdocs at Dartmouth College.

The overarching goal of the DCPDA is to give all postdocs the opportunity to succeed according to their individual wants and needs. In order to effectively implement significant change towards the College’s regulations governing how postdocs are insured, paid, and treated in general, we need the numbers and data to support our agenda.

Happy Surveying!
