Supply and demand considerations will affect the labor market for doctoral scientists and engineers in the United States over the next 10 to 15 years. These changes will be due in some measure to projected slow growth in R and D funding, which will result in a lower growth rate in the demand for personnel with advanced R and D capabilities, the traditional strength of Ph.D. scientists and engineers. Thus, doctoral-level scientists and engineers, particularly those newly entering the job market, will be influenced to consider nontraditional job opportunities. At the same time, it is expected that projected decreases in the number of science and engineering enrollments in educational institutions will result in a shift from academic to nonacademic employment. If such a shift is realized, business and industry, the principal center of nonacademic employment of doctoral scientists and engineers, will assume increasing importance in the future utilization of scientists and engineers.
