PITTSBURGH—In its August 2013 edition, The Scientist magazine ranked the University of Pittsburgh as the fourth best place to work in academia in the United States, an improvement from number 14 in 2012. 

“We are extremely pleased to be recognized as one of the best places to work in academia,” said Pitt Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor Patricia E. Beeson. “As an institution, we strive to remember that placing a high value on scientific research means valuing those who conduct it.”

The Scientist polled more than 1,200 of its readers who identified as full-time scientists, who rated their organizations in 37 criteria in eight categories: job satisfaction; peers; infrastructure and environment; research resources; pay; management and policies; teaching and mentoring; and tenure and promotion.  Pitt scored exceptionally high in both pay and infrastructure and environment, according to the magazine.
