Survey on the situation of professors at a technical university in Germany. Questionnaire (English version)

Geisler, Helena; Löther, Andrea; Steinweg, Nina

This English questionnaire is based on the German version (Geisler et al. 2022). The  German version was constructed by CEWS (GESIS—Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences, Center of Excellence Women and Science) for the online survey in the context of the study to evaluate the current situation of women professors at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The main focus of the online survey of all professors at KIT was the evaluation of the experienced work situation and working atmosphere. For this purpose, the general conditions of the professorship were surveyed, in particular the resources available, appointment/tenure negotiations and time allocation. On the other hand, the survey asked about satisfaction with the work situation, sources of stress and energy, and the experienced working atmosphere, in particular about experienced recognition, preferential treatment and discrimination.

In this document, the questions of the English questionnaire are supplemented by the notes on programming and coding and by references to similar (German and English) questions from other surveys in the field of higher education and science research.
