Description
Summary:This presentation is based on an investigation carried out in a public research institute of natural sciences in Hungary. The aim of the investigation was to explore the obstacles to career advancement of both female and male researchers and collect informations on their attitudes towards work-life balance and childbearing. The collected data has been analysed considering age, gender and scientific degrees. In the first part, the analysis focuses on two main topics from the results: motivations in returning to the labour market before the child reaches age six and drawbacks suffered in professional progress during this period. Some measures and opportunities related to childbearing will be suggested in order to facilitate childbearing. In the second part, further obstacles will be described to the professional progress of female and male researchers such as lack of self-confidence and the dual role of supervisors. The conclusion will show whether researchers establish a family at a later age or not, as well as their work-life balance and to what extent they are able to put it into practice.
