Dear University of York,
I would like to obtain recent statistics [over last 10 years if possible] for the number of York doctoral students who enter academia as a faculty member [as opposed to those who enter the administrative side of academia] after receiving a PhD. I would like this data broken down by department if possible. I would also like the data to distinguish between the percentage of doctoral students who find temporary employment as adjuncts versus the percentage who find permanent long-term positions.
Mr John Fox.
