Reys, Robert E.; Reys, Barbara J.; Shih, Jeffrey C. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2021
Some people pursuing a doctorate in mathematics education are interested in specializing in a specific area within mathematics education. In addition, people considering postdoctoral appointments often choose institutions that have niches or specializations aligned with their long-term career goals. These specialty areas are typically the result…

Rikap, Cecilia; Harari-Kermadec, Hugo – Studies in Higher Education, 2021
Between 2005 and 2015 a series of science, technology and innovation policies were deployed in Argentina among which academic research collaborations with industry was particularly fostered. This paper studies the effect of those policies on newer researchers, defined as those with PhD or postdoctoral scholarships, looking at their motivations to…

Rehbock, Stephanie K.; Pircher Verdorfer, Armin; Knipfer, Kristin – Studies in Higher Education, 2021
Followers' implicit leadership theories (ILTs) are core to understanding how leaders are described and as how effective they are perceived. While much is understood about ILTs in the business context, we know little about professorial leaders although effective leadership is key for performance and success in academia. To explore ILTs in academia,…

Siegfried, John J. – Journal of Economic Education, 2021
Undergraduate economics degrees awarded by U.S. colleges and universities were stagnant from 2010 (2009-10) through 2013, increased almost 14 percent from 2013 through 2015, and have subsequently stabilized at just above one percent annual growth.

Agbonlahor, Osasohan; Mendez, Sylvia L.; Bingham, Andrea – Online Submission, 2021
Understanding the career trajectories of PhD recipients is an important topic of investigation, particularly for foreign students who may work in a different country from where their degree was obtained. In the United States, approximately 70% of PhD recipients enter employment in industry, government, or academia upon graduation, while nearly 30%…

Chandran, Dinu S.; Kaur, Simran; Deepak, Kishore Kumar – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
Consequent to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, pedagogic changes were introduced in postgraduate courses in Physiology, where face-to-face teaching was replaced with synchronous virtual mode for leader-centered (seminar, symposium) and participant-centered (journal club, group discussion) academic activities. We hypothesized that the…

Main, Joyce B.; Wang, Yanbing; Tan, Li – Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Background: The number of engineering PhDs pursuing postdoctoral research scholar (postdoc) positions has steadily increased in the last 30 years. Postdoc positions are commonly thought of as a step toward academic careers. However, engineering PhDs are more likely to work in industry, which leaves open the question of the role of postdocs in the…

Mutambuki, Jacinta; Frey, Regina; Leonard, Denise – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
Many institutions are preparing graduate students and postdoctorals (future faculty) for effective teaching in undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Interestingly, little is known about beneficial features of teaching-development (TD) programs for future faculty after they transition into professoriate roles, and…

Burston, Mary A. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
A government report criticised Australian universities for low proficiency in commercialising epistemic production (research and knowledge). A critical omission was a comparable measure of academic productivity to substantiate whether underperformance correlated with the commercialisation value of research output or whether academic productivity…

Brodin, Eva M.; Avery, Helen – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2020
The aim of this study is to investigate how patterns of collaboration and scholarly independence are related to early stage researchers' development in two multidisciplinary learning environments at a Swedish university. Based on interviews with leaders, supervisors, doctoral students, and post docs, results show how early stage researchers'…

Barthelemy, Ramón S.; McCormick, Melinda; Henderson, Charles R.; Knaub, Alexis – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2020
The topic of women in graduate education has been central to many calls for action in increasing diversity and inclusion in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The field of physics has been particularly resistant to change in the significant overrepresentation of men, while also being similar to the field of astronomy which has a…

McAlpine, Lynn – Journal of Research Administration, 2020
An award as principal investigator (PI) is an aspiration for many post-PhD researchers. However, we know little of the actual journey from PhD graduation to achieving this goal. Using a qualitative narrative approach, this study explored how eight science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine post-PhD researchers (on contracts and…
