Women as a percentage of full-time, full professors with science, engineering, and health doctorates, by employing institution: 1993–2013
NOTE: Criteria for research I institutions based on 1994 Carnegie classification.
Women in full-time, full professorships
Women's share of full-time, full professorships has more than doubled since 1993. Despite this increase, women currently occupy only about one-fourth of these senior faculty positions. Women's share of full professorships is similar at the nation's most research-intensive academic institutions and at all 4-year colleges and universities.
Women are more likely to hold full-time associate and assistant professorships than full-time, full professorships, in part because older cohorts of academically employed doctorate holders in science, engineering, and health are disproportionately male.
