  • Abstract

    The present study has been conducted as a sub-study of the WiNbus study “Academic Career and Family” within the scope of the project “WiNBus – An Online Panel among Young Academics in Germany” funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The partial study investigated the compatibility of professional career and family life of young academics. The study focused on how conflicts of objectives between professional and private commitment can be managed as well as on the influence of the structures of the academic system on the careers of researchers. This dual perspective on structural and actor-specific characteristics made it possible to obtain information on success or failure to integrate both aspects of life, and to identify the relevant support opportunities.
