More-senior researchers are more likely to publish in hot areas when they are supervising a younger scientist.

STEM gender gap needs rethinking: Men and women just as likely to earn doctorate degree
ZME Science
Many scholars who still seek to explain why more women leave the science, technology, engineering and mathematics pipeline than men are stuck in old times. If in the 1970s, men were 1.6 to 1.7 times as likely as women to later earn a STEM Ph.D., by the 1990s the gender gap had closed and both sexes are as likely to complete their education. Efforts to bridge the gap and promote gender diversity have thus been fruitful. There's still gender gap in STEM among those who first enroll in college, with roughly three times as many men than women.

US stem education is still mediocre
Tech Cocktail
A recent Pew Research Center survey suggests that the American public might be a bit deluded about the quality of our STEM education. 29 percent of Americans still rate our K-12 STEM education as above average or the best in the world, as do 16 percent of scientists.

STEM requires innovation and public/private partnership
The Hill
The American economy continues to produce jobs in science, technology, engineering and math. According to a 2014 report by the General Accounting Office the nation's job growth between 2004 and 2012 was nearly expressly due to job creation in STEM fields. Non-STEM jobs remained about the same in number over that time span. While the percentage of students earning degrees in STEM fields has increased over the past decade, America still lags behind other nations in global measures of academic performance and lacks the trained workforce to meet the growing job market.

Forbes
If you place a job ad and throw a bunch of keywords into it, how long do you think it's going to take the average jobseeker to figure out that s/he needs to cut and paste the same keywords into his or her online application?
