The analysis compares career paths and research performance for post-docs with and without a stay abroad. We look at the sectoral mobility (whether the postdoc remained in the university sector after the grant), career advancement and a number of aspects related to research performance such as productivity, citation impact, journal impact, international cooperation and international cooperation. The analysis includes postdoctoral scholarships financed by the DFF in Natural Sciences in the period 2001-2009, where we examine outcomes 6-8 years after the stay abroad. The sample includes two types of postdocs, individually funded postdoc fellowships (individual postdocs) and postdoctoral grants that are embedded in larger project grants (embedded postdocs). Overall, we find that both postdocs with and without prolonged stay abroad have fairly high research performance during and after the grant from the DFF.

Productivity, measured either in terms of counts or fractional articles, is highest among postdocs with a prolonged stay abroad, while the average citation impact is highest for postdocs with little or no stay abroad.
