So, I was procrastinating the other day and decided to compile data on where N. American tenure-track asst. professors of ecology (or allied fields like fish & wildlife) hired in 2016-17 got their PhDs. Basically, did they all get their PhDs from UC Davis, or what?* Because you can’t throw a rock over there without hitting an ecology grad student.**
Anyway, before I post the results, I’m curious what you think I found. Take 30 seconds and answer the following questions! I hope you do better than the people who responded to my silly Twitter polls on this topic. 😉
This is not a scientific poll, obviously (especially since I kinda gave away the answers on Twitter…). Just a hopefully-fun conversation starter.
*Just kidding, I didn’t really wonder this.
**Please don’t actually try this. 🙂
