Research Support for Science Faculty.
Blandford, Barbara; Dutton, Diane
This survey of the Higher Education Panel of the American Council on Education, conducted during September and October 1971, concerned the split of research funds between young and senior faculty at institutions granting Ph.D.'s in science and engineering. Each institution was asked, first, to indicate which departments, in a list of 17 selected science, engineering, and clinical fields, granted the Ph.D. Then, if a given department did so, the chairman of that department was asked whether, in his opinion, the split of funds between young and senior faculty was appropriate. If the chairman reported that he felt the split of funds to be inappropriate, he was next asked to indicate whether the split favored senior or young staff and to give his opinion as to the reason for the inappropriate split of research funds. This document presents the results of this survey. (Author/HS)
