UC San Diego will not fire pregnant postdoc from China who spoke out about data falsification pressure
- Li Jiang, a pregnant postdoctoral scholar from China, reached a settlement with the University of California, San Diego, earlier this month to extend her contract for six more months.
- Jiang, whose contract has been renewed multiple times at the university, nearly lost her job and her legal status in the U.S. after speaking out about data falsification in her lab earlier this year.
- After her revelation about the irregularities in January, Jiang said her supervisor told her that her research appointment would not be extended again.
- Her peers criticized the case, and the Agricultural Implement Workers of America (UAW) filed a formal grievance on her behalf on July 15.
- Under the settlement, Jiang will now be allowed to stay and continue her work at UC San Diego under a new supervisor and retain her health benefits for six more months.
- While she is set to resign after the “bridge appointment,” this will at least ensure Jiang does not lose her legal status in the U.S. while she is pregnant.
