COACh is a grass-roots organization based at the University of Oregon that works to increase the number and career success of scientists and engineers through innovative programs and strategies. This survey is designed to find out more about your career experiences and concerns and your work environment as a postdoctoral associate.  Your responses will also be used to help COACh further its research on ways to improve the careers and productivity of scientists around the world. If you decide to participate you are giving consent to COACh to use your answers and comments for our research.

The survey is anonymous, does not ask for names or contact information and will take about 15 minutes to complete. All raw data will remain with the researchers at the University of Oregon and will not be shared. Any information you provide will only be presented in an aggregate and summary manner. We ask for some demographic information to help understand patterns in the data, but extreme care will be taken to ensure that no individual can be identified in the reports, including grouping of responses across demographic categories with fewer members. You may, of course, only choose to answer the questions that you desire. Your decision whether or not to participate is totally voluntary and will not affect your relationship with COACh.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Geraldine Richmond, Department of Chemistry, 1253 University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403, (541) 346-0116. 
Thank you for helping COACh.
