Hutton Women in Science

Being a scientist is a way of making a difference and improving people’s lives. It is generally accepted that research and scientists are crucial in providing solutions to global challenges like climate change, or food insecurity. However, science is not always considered as a potential career and women in particular remain under-represented in many science areas.

This booklet hopes to help address the imbalance by describing the role of 21 of the 204 female scientists and technicians who work at the James Hutton Institute. It highlights some of the vast array of interesting, rewarding and appealing jobs and careers there are in science and social science. The work is often in other countries, typically with a very international community of colleagues and partners. Some of the women featured here have moved across or between science disciplines as opportunities and interests have evolved, while others have chosen to become specialists in their field.
