PhDs and PostDocs on welfare state research, Bremen, Germany

For further details see here: http://www.socium.uni-bremen.de/ueber-das-socium/stellenausschreibungen/de/?block=215

My usual caveat applies: I am more and more worried about the sheer quantities of PhDs produceed, especially in the German system. Instead of permanent, stable positions, much of (excellent) research is financed by temporary projects implemented through PhDs and, to a lesser extent, PostDocs. This is not a sustainable model, even counting that some people use their PhDs for pursuing careers outside academia.

Reverse Engineering a Regression Table: A simple (?) introduction for social scientists

I have drafted a small presentation how to read a regression table. It is mainly meant for (qualitatively working) social scientists and students who do not want to take a full stats class, but want, at least, to get the gist of quantitative articles, papers, reports etc. The idea is to improve passive literacy in quantitative articles. Feedback is welcome!

You can find the presentation here: RegressionTable
