No prize-worthy (early career) women? Part two

In the past we’ve compiled a list of awards and the gender breakdown of awardees. Today, we’re starting a list focused on early career investigator awards.

Elsevier/VSS Young Investigator Award – Awarded since 2007, to 9 men : 1 woman (10%); base rate estimated to be 30% using our most recent search of the term vision science in NIH RePORTER

Society For Neuroeconomics Early Career Award – Awarded since 2009, to 8 men : 3 women (27%); base rate estimated to be 37% using our current neuroeconomics number

Society for Neuroscience Young Investigator Award – Awarded since 1983, to 41 men : 9 women (18%), and awarded to 12 men : 4 women (25%) since 2007; base rate estimated to be 24% using our current general neuroscience number (current selection committee: 5 women, 3 men)
