YESS BSS Follow-up survey on COVID-19 effects on early career researchers in BSS

Last year, YESS BSS sent out a survey to explore the impact of COVID-19
on early career researchers in our faculty. The outcomes were discussed
with the faculty board and YESS BSS made recommendations (see also
mindwise-blog here). We are now entering the second year of living and working under COVID-19 regulations and we think it is important to follow-up with early career researchers and make new recommendations to the board. We would therefore like to invite you to complete the follow-up survey.

How do early career researchers at BSS experience work during COVID-19?

Read the Mindwise blog by YSS BSS members Tina Kretschmer, Anita Keller, and Laura Baams on how early career researchers at the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences experience their work situation during COVID-19. The blog summarizes a survey carried out by YESS BSS in mid-April 2020, the response of the Faculty Board, and contains a call to the faculty to address concerns regarding declining research progress and mental health.
