Online lecture: Career plans among PhD students - are there gendered differences?
Fewer women than men progress into tenured positions and become professors after finishing their doctoral education. Why is that?
In a project at the Faculty of Science, Lund University, Sweden, they wanted to investigate whether PhD students of different genders alter their career plans differently during the doctoral studies.

Change per se is not a ‘failure’ but institutional practices and culture may impact individuals and groups differently. This was a first attempt to understand the career motivations and potential obstacles for all doctoral students at the faculty. Our invited speaker will present the project results and then we open up for a joint discussion on how to move forward.

Johanna Stadmark is a researcher at the Faculty of Science at Lund University and works at the Department of Geology mainly in projects addressing environmental challenges such as eutrophication, acidification and carbon cycling. She is in the steering group of WINGS (Women in Great Sciences) since 2009 and an active member of the equality boards at the Faculty of Science at Lund University and of the EDI committee of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).
