Finally male scientists will be able to get dates without leaving the lab.

What if the lab gets jealous? Not many dogs are into open relationships

My neighbors' labs will let practically anybody feel them up.

A compelling body of research is now available, from many leading academic researchers and from respected research organizations such as the National Bureau of Economic Research, the RAND Corporation, and the Urban Institute. No one has been able to find any evidence indicating current widespread labor market shortages or hiring difficulties in science and engineering occupations that require bachelors degrees or higher, although some are forecasting high growth in occupations that require post-high school training but not a bachelors degree. All have concluded that U.S. higher education produces far more science and engineering graduates annually than there are S&E job openings-the only disagreement is whether it is 100 percent or 200 percent more. Were there to be a genuine shortage at present, there would be evidence of employers raising wage offers to attract the scientists and engineers they want. But the evidence points in the other direction: Most studies report that real wages in many-but not all-science and engineering occupations have been flat or slow-growing, and unemployment as high or higher than in many comparably-skilled occupations.

> In general, men seemed to progress to senior roles - roughly judged by appearing as the last author on a paper - more quickly. On average, they also published 15-20% more papers than did women over the time span of the data, though there is wide variation across different fields.


Umm, author order can vary wildly between different fields.

In math and high energy physics author order is alphabetic.

The last author is sometimes the least important author, the corresponding author (to whom people should write with questions about the paper), or an honorary author such as the head of a research group who did no work on the project other than maybe getting it funding (executive producer).

First author can be most important or honorary.

I remember seeing a video online of a female scientist at work. I don't remember all the details, but she invented a very lifelike female robot. I'm not sure of her doctoral degree, but she was extremely passionate about her work and this robot.

It's very sexist to expect these women to bring their male peers exotic fruits to snack on.

Can't speak for other fields, but academic biology is either 50/50 or very strongly female, depending on subfield and career stage.

Was kind of a dumb idea to categorically eliminate half the population from the think tank in the first place.
