Description:

This is study of gender differences in S&E faculty careers. Although women are still underrepresented in the applicant pool for faculty positions in math, science, and engineering at major research universities, those who do apply are interviewed and hired at rates equal to or higher than those for men, says a new report from the National Research Council. Similarly, women are underrepresented among those considered for tenure, but those who are considered receive tenure at the same or higher rates than men. The report contains other findings of interests and the study panel makes specific recommendations for both research institutions and academic societies.
