Tracing ISP Graduates 2014-2017

Abstract [en]

The International Science Programme (ISP) at Uppsala University provides long-term financial and collegial support to institutionally based research groups and scientific networks in chemistry, mathematics and physics in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

During 2014-2017, 259 PhD students have graduated from 43 ISP supported research groups and networks. This report aims to find out where these graduates go after graduation and if they are contributing to increased competence at their academic institutions or making use of their skills in other sectors or other countries.

In all, 250 out of the 259 PhD graduates where traced with their present whereabouts. In line with previous ISP tracer studies, this study shows that 95% of the PhD graduates are employed in their home countries (89%) and regions (6%). A large majority (94%) is working at universities or research institutes, many holding positions as lecturers or assistant professors. Twelve graduates (5%) are currently working outside their home country and regions, most (83%) at academic institutions in these countries.
