Title: Climbing The Academy Ladder In Brazil: Physics
Author: Cotta M.A.

Abstract: In the last few years, the main Brazihan funding agencies, CNPq and CAPES, have introduced gender awareness projects. This initiative is a starting point for changing the percentage of women at all career levels in physics, but particularly at the top. The change in the percentage of female researchers at the different levels so far has been quite mild; the most likely reason is that the decision committees consist mostly of male researchers. We show that prejudice is still present in the evaluation process. The average number of publications of the female researchers is 72% higher than for the male researchers at the entrance level, indicating that it is harder for women to enter into the research system. © 2009 American Institute of Physics.
