Human Resources Contributions to U.S. Science and Engineering from China. SRS Issue Brief.
Johnson, Jean M.
This issue brief presents trends in the flow of Chinese graduate students in science and engineering to U.S. universities, their contribution to U.S. academic research, and their subsequent employment in the U.S. highly skilled labor force in postdoctoral appointments and other employment. While graduate students, Chinese students who earned a science and/or engineering (S&E) doctorate (21,600) in the United States between 1986 and 1998 conducted basic and applied research at U.S. universities and helped teach students in science, mathematics, and engineering. After earning their degrees, Chinese postdoctorates have contributed to research at U.S. universities and elsewhere. Chinese-born scientists and engineers are part of the U.S. technical labor force, particularly in business and industry. (ASK)
