Thursday, October 19, 2017
AGI’s Geoscience Student Exit Survey has been conducted with graduating students completing their bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral geoscience degrees for the past 5 years. AGI followed up with approximately 1250 recent graduate respondents. This follow-up survey investigated their career path up to September 2017, the factors they consider when choosing a job,
and the skills and knowledge gained since entering the workforce. This survey collected 332 responses (27% response rate)--163 bachelor’s graduates, 101 master’s graduates, and 68 doctoral graduates.

Currents #119 investigated the representation of women in geoscience faculty positions in the United States. To extend that conversation of gender representation in the geosciences, NSF’s 2013 restricted-use data file integrating the National Survey of College Graduates and the Survey of Doctoral Recipients was used to look at the representation of women in the geoscience workforce as a whole. These are longitudinal surveys that follow individuals through their careers.

Thursday, August 17, 2017
Between 2006-2016, the percentage of female geoscience faculty increased from 14 percent to 20 percent of the geoscience academic workforce. The largest growth was seen at the Assistant Professor rank with an increase of 11 percentage points. The increase of women in geoscience faculty positions over the past decade may seem small, but considering an academic may remain in the career for 30-40 years, this steady growth shows the inroads women have made into academia.

Presenter

Roger Lamb has twenty plus years of consulting experience in contaminated land assessment remediation and environmental hydrogeology. He specializes in the development of real-time high resolution understanding of chemical releases and hydrogeologic conditions. This information is used to improve project outcomes by reducing project costs, increasing stakeholder engagement and guaranteeing a sustainable approach and wise investment of resources. During his career, he has have performed pioneering work in the area of TRIAD approach-type site characterization of LNAPL, DNAPL, VOC releases and buried waste. He was the first consultant in the world to apply high resolution investigation tools to remediation design/implementation.
