Labor Day: NSF's Portrait of the Workforce

Back to article | Note about images

The number of U.S. jobs that require S&E skills is growing faster than the labor force as a whole.

According to the latest statistics from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the number of U.S. jobs that require science and engineering skills is growing faster than the rest of the labor force.

Here we see a graduate student at one of NSF's Engineering Research Centers, the Georgia Tech/Emory Center for the Engineering of Living Tissues, as she exposes cells to mechanical forces in order to measure their migration rates across surfaces that imitate blood vessels. This research is aimed at creating living replacements for artificial materials used for implantation into the human body, and at fostering tissue regeneration.
