Report on Retaining Postdoctoral Researchers with Families Released by NPA

Modified: June 30, 2017

The Center for WorkLife Law at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law has partnered with the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) on its latest report, Parents in the Pipeline: Retaining Postdoctoral Researchers with Families. This report is part of an effort by The Center for WorkLife Law to ensure that parents—and mothers in particular—have an equal opportunity to advance in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

Parents in the Pipeline highlights the parenthood leak in the STEM pipeline and what institutions can do about it. Additionally, the NPA has developed several family-friendly resources, including A Postdoc's Guide to Pregnancy and Maternity Leave, a guide for women who are pregnant or planning for pregnancy during their postdoc, and its companion, A Postdoc's Guide to Paternity Leave, for expectant postdoc fathers. Check out the report and guides!
