Abstract [en]

This paper explores why some Swedish female mathematicians decide not to work in academia. The stories of four women were merged into one narrative. Sarah describes the life as a female PhD student in a mathematics department as a positive experience. The reasons why she decided not to stay at the university were (1) the difficulty of getting a job, and (2) her wanting to work with applications and problem solving more than developing theory.
