L’accès à l’emploi des docteurs en sciences de la vie : caractéristiques individuelles et effets de structure

Abstract : We study how a sample of doctoral graduates in the life sciences entered the labour market. We test some hypotheses, encountered in the literature, regarding the determinants of entry into academia vs the private sector. The estimation of proportional hazard models leads to three main results : (1) although the importance of the graduaates' publications should not be underestimated, the main criteria on which their enrolment was based seem to have involved more sophisticated indicators than a simple measure of their academic productivity; (2) those who joined the private (business) sector did not do so by chance, or as a second-best option; this choice was the outcome of a well-planned project; (3) In both academia and the business sector, the success of a candidate's doctoral research project was found to depend largely on the quality of his/her supervisors, the reputation of the research group or lab involved in the Ph.D. thesis, and the means placed at the candidate's disposal.
