Postdoctoral Education at the University of California, San Diego.
Robinson, Thomas E.
This paper presents the results of a comprehensive study of postdoctoral education at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). The purpose of the study was to determine the basic facts about postdoctoral education at UCSD, so that those entrusted with academic, administrative, and legislative responsibilities regarding postdoctoral education could better cope with associated problems. The findings include: (1) Of the 214 postdoctorals identified, 54% are in the physical and biological sciences, 36% in the health sciences, 6% in mathematics and engineering sciences, and 4% in humanities and social sciences. (2) Principal investigators and department chairmen involved in postdoctoral education feel strongly that postdoctorals should be recognized as a part of faculty workload and included in resource allocation and planning activities. (3) The estimated level of magnitude cost to the university for supporting postdoctoral education is $500,000, or an annual average per scholar of $3,600 in the health sciences and $1,500 in the nonhealth sciences.
