Nature is encouraging postdoctoral researchers working in academia in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to respond to its first-ever survey dedicated entirely to postdocs, a crucial but often marginalized segment of the scientific workforce. The survey, now accessible at https://go.nature.com/3fDup2u, addresses issues at the heart of the postdoctoral experience, including job satisfaction, career progression, working hours and financial compensation.
