of people holding doctoral and candidate of science degrees are theoretically willing to change jobs if offered the opportunity to take part in a large-scale project that is important for the country.
In reality, only 3% of highly qualified academic personnel are planning to move to a new job (for various reasons) in the near future.
These data were obtained during a nationwide survey of researchers holding doctoral and candidate degrees as part of a Monitoring of the Labor Market for Highly Qualified R&D Personnel study, the most recent wave of which was carried out in 2014 by employees of the HSE Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge (ISSEK). The results of the monitoring study will be published in an international book entitled ‘The value of doctorate degrees on the labour market: research and non-research careers’. The book will present the results of a survey of degree holders in the UK, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Japan, the U.S., and Russia. The book will be published by Springer in the first half of 2015.
