CUNHA, Rocelly; DIMENSTEIN, Magda  y  DANTAS, Candida. Work and daily life of female psychology PQ/CNPq fellows. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.4, pp. 1766-1774. ISSN 1984-6657.

The objective of the present study was to understand the repercussions of the demands of scientific work on the daily life of Psychology PQ/CNPq fellows and the strategies developed to reconcile academic and domestic-family demands. We worked with a non-probabilistic sample of 85 women from the 204 PQ fellows registered at CNPq who answered the online questionnaire, and with a sub-group of 24 women researchers who answered the remote interview. The results indicate that the daily lives of female researchers are strongly affected in different spheres. In an attempt to conciliate, they resort to family support and/or hiring domestic workers/babysitters. For most of them, motherhood is not an obstacle to scientific excellence. On the other hand, in relation to love-marital relationships, there are conflicts due to academic demands, which negatively impact professional investments. We conclude that the daily life of the PQ fellows is crossed by the structural gender inequality, forcing them to develop strategies of conciliation, which have repercussions in the domestic-familial sphere and in the conjugal relationships.

Palabras clave : scientific excellence; gender inequality; daily life.
