Indicator 10.1Research workforce by discipline, Universitywide, 2010-11
In 2010-11, funded research projects provided employment for more than 28,000 full-time-equivalent personnel. This represents 29 percent1 of the total UC full-time-equivalent workforce, including student employees.
A diverse community of faculty, other academics, postdoctoral researchers, students, professional researchers and support staff contribute to UC's research enterprise. Student researchers (primarily graduate students) contribute significantly to research in all disciplines, comprising almost one-third of the paid research workforce in the physical sciences and technology fields.
The employment shown above includes only staff and students directly paid by UC or an externally funded research program. It does not capture the effort of faculty and students who engage in research in the normal course of their work or the staff who provide administrative, facilities and equipment maintenance support as part of the overall University mission. In most disciplines without significant external research funding, such as the arts and humanities, this work contributes the lion's share of the total research effort.
