Competition Success Rates by Career Stage

NB: Except for certain competitions, CIHR does not collect information on an applicant’s career stage. In the data below, the applicant’s age was used as an approximate facsimile to career stage.

Within-sex success rate (%) M 11.40 11.60 14.53 15.40 14.91
F 12.16 11.46 12.56 12.06 5.88

Note: The n-value is very low for Senior Investigators (over 65); therefore, the data should be interpreted with that in mind.
