[Canada] Postdocs dissatisfied

Canadian survey respondents complain of low pay, meagre benefits and lack of careers training.

Nearly one-third of postdocs in Canada are ambivalent about or dissatisfied with their experience, a survey finds. For The 2013 Canadian Postdoc Survey, the Canadian Association of Postdoctoral Scholars and Vancouver-based non-profit research organization Mitacs polled 1,830 postdocs at 130 institutions in academia, government and the private sector. Nearly half were dissatisfied with benefits such as insurance or leave time, about one-third with training opportunities, and more than one-third with pay. Postdocs must negotiate for pay and benefits and seek out extra training themselves, says survey co-author Robert Annan, vice-president for research and policy at Mitacs. - Nature 502, 399 (2013), 16 October 2013
