Patterns of Researchers’ Social Mobility and Scientific Capital: Russian Case

Changes in financing structures of science and education foster the restructuring of scientific personnel market and its mobility. The author presents a conceptual model of scientists’ social mobility that reflects its dependence on the social processes that take place in an academic community and their connection with scientific capital. This model allows a complex analysis of doctorate holders. There are core trends in scientists’ social shifts in the professional sphere (inter-sectoral, institutional, international, etc.), their second employment and their shifts in specialization.
