[68.01] Hidden Losses: Alternatives to Faculty Careers in the Sciences among Doctorally-Prepared Women

E. Seymour (U. Colorado)

Elaine Seymour draws on a number of the recent and ongoing studies of her research group to address the issue of why doctorally-prepared women in the sciences may not elect to enter a faculty career. She discusses aspects of faculty life and of career alternatives that inhibit this choice and make other alternatives more attractive, and how late-stage doctoral students and early career female scientists reach these decisions.
