New study finds bias against female lecturers among student course evaluations, the Economist reports.

A research duo finds that science and technology graduate students who turn away from academic careers do so because of changes in their own interests.

CNBC reports that the genetic counseling field is expected to grow as personalized medicine becomes more common.
