Survey of Science and Technology Career Paths

Anonymous Survey Of  Career Paths of Science and Technology Professionals

Take a Brief UC Survey About Science & Tech Careers
Researchers at the University of California Davis are conducting an anonymous survey about the career paths of science and technology professionals in the United States, with an emphasis on the greater San Francisco Bay Area.

Your response is very important. By sharing your work experience you will advance research about how professional achievements vary by immigration status, gender and race/ethnicity. For example, we want to learn whether the type of visa a person has when they arrive to the U.S. affects their earnings over time.
In order to compare success across groups, we must hear from diverse STEM professionals, both U.S.-born and immigrant.

Since biotech and pharma are large and growing sectors, we want to make sure your perspectives are included.

The survey is anonymous and all data will be studied in aggregate only. It takes about 10 minutes to complete.
The survey link is:

 We appreciate your time and consideration!
