*Names in bold indicate Presenter

Organizer:  Valerie Bostwick, Kansas State University
Panel Chair:  Matthew Ross, New York University
Discussant:  Jung Bae, The Ohio State University

This session will explore how various aspects of the academic research environment can impact both scientific innovation as well as graduate students' job placement outcomes. The academic research environment can be quantified by measures such as: team size, field of study, gender and racial diversity, and network structure. The papers in this session use these types of measures to provide a richer view of the current state of research environments in academia and their effects on outcomes for both scientists and students. The session will touch on issues in both innovation and education policy research. The findings in this session are relevant to inventors and firms engaged in science, academics engaged in training future scientists, and to program officers making funding decisions.
