Take Part: UC Survey About the Career Paths of Immigrants in Science & Tech

Robin Savinar, a researcher at the University of California Davis, has asked me to circulate to my readers the following request for survey respondents.

Researchers at the University of California Davis are conducting a brief anonymous survey about the career paths of high-skilled immigrants in the United States who work in science and technology.

Your response is very important. By sharing your work experience you will advance research about how professional achievements vary by immigration status, country of origin and gender. For example, we want to learn whether the type of visa a person has when they arrive to the U.S. (TN, H-1B, F, etc.) affects their earnings and chances for permanent residence over time.

Canadians and Mexicans represent a modest but critical part of science and technology professionals in the U.S. While immigrants from all countries are welcome to participate, we want to make sure Canadian and Mexican perspectives are included, especially those with current or former TN or H-1B visa experience.

Anyone who currently works in STEM fields and resides in the U.S. is eligible to participate.

Your answers will be completely anonymous, and will be combined with other respondents’ answers.

 The survey takes 10-15 minutes to complete.

 We appreciate your time and consideration!
