Metrics, men and mole rats (2 of 3)

April 26, 2012

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary, University of London displays the Athena Swan Bronze Award on its website, demonstrating its commitment to the advancement of women in science. Of 76 academic staff in the school, 10 are female. Three "roles" currently performed by female academics are "at risk" in Queen Mary's current round of restructuring, and two female researchers are being "offered" teaching and scholarship positions. These women have strong publication records, grant income and high teaching loads. Thus, we question whether reviews in the school have been "fair and transparent" and followed "due process".
