Americans think that the best scientists come from their best universities. To learn more, consider where the influential mathematicians from:
|got their degree in the USA||33%|
|got their Ph.D. in the USA||58%|
|working in the USA||68%|
The American scientific dominance relies partially on the ability of the USA to attract and retain the best and the brightest:
- 33.6% of European PhDs were attracted to faculty or research positions in the US.
- 55% of non-European foreign PhDs were attracted to faculty positions in the US.
- Only 10% of American Ph.D.s go work abroad.
