ACS Webinar on the Glut of Doctoral Scientists

We don’t often post about upcoming events, but today two events have caught my attention: the New York work-life lecture by Alice Huang and, now, an American Chemical Society webinar, Doctoral Glut Dilemma: Are There Solutions?

Just as with the Huang event, what caught my attention is the personnel: If I were to select a panel to address this issue, these two–Georgia State economist Paula Stephan and NBER/Harvard economist Richard Freeman–would be right at the top of the list. Both have contributed to Science Careers articles (Stephan: Freeman), and Freeman has himself written for Science Careers on three occasions. Note, in particular, Beryl Benderly’s review of Stephan’s recent book.

The Webinar will take place tomorrow (Thursday, 8 November) at 2 pm. It’s free, but you need to register to reserve bandwidth.
