Forschung, Lehre und Selbstverwaltung

Our recent DZHW-Brief examines how scientists organise the various professional tasks assigned to them. Traditionally, they assume three central responsibilities: teaching, research and academic self-administration. However, there is always discussion as to the extent to which the proportion of these tasks are balanced. On the basis of the DZHW Scientists Survey 2016, we examine how professors and junior faculty staff balance their working time dedicated to central tasks such as research and teaching.

Bezahlt oder unbezahlt? Überstunden im akademischen Mittelbau

Our new article in Forschung&Lehre examines the role of overtime work for junior academic staff. Scientists are often assumed to be intrinsically motivated and that overtime work is therefore integral part of their scientific self-image. But what role does overtime work actually play for junior faculty scientists? The DZHW Science Survey provides insights and shows how overtime hours are most frequently accumulated where part-time work is contractually agreed upon.
