Establishing the diversity of researchers eligible for early career fellowships
The Royal Society commissioned CRAC to analyse existing data about staff in UK HE institutions in order to develop a diversity profile of those eligible for its early career fellowship schemes, principally postdoctoral researchers. The report provides such profiles against which the Royal Society can compare the diversity profile of those who apply to these schemes and obtain awards, to understand how inclusive they are. It also reveals a range of significant trends as the population of these researchers has changed over the last 10 years.
