The UC ADVANCE PAID Recruitment Data Analysis Project is focused on developing and analyzing a common data bank of information on faculty searches. The purpose of the project is to analyze search activity at key stages of the process to understand more about why women and under-represented minority hires continue to lag PhD availability in the natural and behavioral sciences, as well as in engineering and computer and information science.
