The Changing Dynamics of PhDs and the Future of Higher Educational Development in Asia and the Rest of the World
Jambor, Zoltan Paul
Online Submission
Industries in developing countries could counterbalance the western monopoly on higher education by investing more in research at local universities and consequently improving the local human resources talent pools and the overall world rankings of the local universities. What is more, with the perceived lack of necessity for university faculty to possess PhDs, it should not go unnoticed by any applicant as it may well be that his/her citation/publication index holds the actual key to being employed. On the whole, all parties involved need to be increasingly conscious of the changing situation in order to maximize their productive potential in the modern environment of higher education. Five appendices are included: (1) Ecology and Evolutionary Biology; (2) Fixed-term Associate Professorship in English--College of Arts and Sciences, The University of Tokyo (3) Faculty Position at UCC/Tyndall (06/06/09); (4) Postdoctoral Research Associate Position at the University of Pittsburgh; and (5) Research Position--Spoken Dialogue. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
