Trends in Faculty Positions and Their Impact on U.S. Science.
Atkinson, Richard C.
The impact that trends in faculty positions may have on science in the United States is examined in this paper. Evidence is presented that indicates that there is a need to create new junior faculty positions on our university campuses. Three possible complementary approaches to alleviating the shortage of positions available to the increasing number of young faculty are discussed: voluntary early retirement, voluntary mid-career change, and Senior Scientists Research Grants.
