Isolated in the Lab: Examining Dissatisfaction with Postdoctoral Appointments
Miller, Jennifer M.; Feldman, Maryann P.
Journal of Higher Education, v86 n5 p697-724 Sep-Oct 2015
Dissatisfaction with postdoctoral appointments is associated with demographics, career goals, types of research, postdoc-advisor interaction, and program quality. Rather than a simple inverse relationship to dissatisfaction, the effect of program quality depends on the postdoc's autonomy to shape a research project, interaction with an advisor, and the advisor's commercialization-related activities.
