Abstract

The scientific community addresses several critics regarding the hiring process of scholars. Inbreeding is at the heart of these critics: using their social ties, the applicants have a higher probability to get a job if they are local. We propose two explanations of the tendency to local hiring. On the one hand, hirers have difficulties to evaluate the applicants' skills. On the other hand, PhDs holders, as any other individuals, have a tendency to be embedded in a territory.
