NOTES: Numbers in parentheses correspond to the total number of positions in each group defined by discipline, type, and percentage of women in the interview pool. The next-to-last column shows the total number of positions by discipline and type offered to a woman. The last column shows the total number of positions by discipline and type for which we have complete information on the gender of the candidate receiving the first offer.
