Author: MA Ying

Drawing on the concept of advantage accumulation, this paper explores reasons for a lower level of occupational accomplishments of female S&T personnel, through the analysis of gender differences among doctorate graduates in their interest in academic research, research ability, and occupational aspiration. Research data show that female doctorates had lower interests in academic research, as well as reduced ability and occupational aspiration from men's. These differences would accumulate and create bigger gaps in women's future occupational development, and influence their occupational status and accomplishments. This paper suggests that female S&T personnel ought to establish clear occupational goals and enhance research ability in order to attain higher occupational accomplishments. Meanwhile, related formal agencies andn institutions should pay more attention to existence of gender issues.
