Harnessing Postdoc STEM Talent
Postdoctoral Program Lead Kristene “Tina” Henne (ALI) has authored an article on postdoctoral researchers on the Illinois Science and Technology Coalition (ISCTC) Website. In the article Henne details the crucial need for postdocs as a vital component of the STEM Pool Talent.
With an estimated 60,000 – 80,000 postdoctoral researchers in the U.S., postdocs make up a significant, but often overlooked, portion of the STEM talent pool.
Illinois universities employ approximately 2,100 postdocs in STEM, not including the National Labs.
The number of postdocs at Argonne has averaged approximately 300 since 2011.
