Culling the (science) herd?

  1. NIH adds to the hiring boom by allowing high F&A rates and for allowing F&A to stack from multiple grants, enabling universities to take out bonds on buildings, fill them with soft money positions, reap the F&A to pay back the bonds and repeat. I’d attribute a good part of the mid-90s boom to that.
