PhDs’ Employment Status

This is our annual survey that monitors the job placement, one year after graduation, of PhDs who have obtained their degrees at AlmaLaurea member universities.

These documents are currently only available in Italian.

The Survey provides a broad portrait of the of PhDs' placement in the job market, of the characteristics of the job found, including profession and salary, and on how the skills acquired at university are used in their job.
The rich informative value is ensured by integrating the statistical documentation from the survey questionnaire with that obtained from the Survey on the Profile of PhDs and with the administrative data transferred by the universities.
From 2021, the documentation is also drawn up referring to the survey conducted three years after obtaining a PhD.
