This resource collection includes the findings of Nature’s two global surveys of postdoctoral researchers, published in 2020 and 2023. The 2023 survey polled more than 3800 postdocs working in academia and industry. They share the highs and lows of life in the lab, how COVID-19 has impacted their careers, and how they are using AI technologies at work.
