11 February. International day of women and girls in science

While women represent 57.5% of researchers in training, these figures are reversed during the postdoctoral stage until reaching a minimum in research professor (24.88%) figures. If we take into account the distribution of the scientific staff for research areas, the percentage of women in natural resources and agricultural sciences represents a 23.98% and 41,44% respectively. From IREC, and aware of this situation, we want to make visible those women who work in these areas contributing to scientific progress and the Betterment of society.

  • In the IREC work 75 people, 34 of them women.
  • Of the 73 doctoral theses defended in the IREC between 2006 and 2017, 42 are women.
  • However, only 4 of those 20 researchers of template are women.
  • Currently 2 of 5 researchers with postdoctoral long-term contracts are women. The two are precisely access contracts to the Spanish system of science, technology and innovation of the UCLM on which weighs a great uncertainty in their future because of the infrafinanciacion of the University by the autonomous Government.
