Junior staff want more grant-applications help from institutions.
US junior research faculty members want more grant-seeking support from their institutions, an annual survey has found. Results of the Tenure-Track Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey, administered by Harvard University's Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, were released on 15 November. Todd Benson, COACHE assistant director, says that addressing key concerns such as grant management could help institutions recruit and retain junior faculty. COACHE shares survey results among participating universities to help them improve internal policies, he says.
