The Impacts of Postdoctoral Training on Scientists' Academic Employment
Su, Xuhong
Journal of Higher Education, v84 n2 p239-265 Mar-Apr 2013
This article examines the dynamics of postdoctoral training affecting scientists' academic employment, focusing on timing and prestige dimensions. Postdoc training proves beneficial to academic employment--more so in less prestigious departments than in top ones. Postdoc duration is subject to diminishing returns. The benefits of training vary across scientists with different demographic characteristics. (Contains 4 tables, 1 figure, and 4 notes.)
