CSWP Web-Based Survey

One of the larger challenges facing physicists today as they seek to achieve their career goals is the "two-body problem"-the difficulty of finding jobs for two scientists in the same location. Since many physicists are partnered with other scientists, creative ways to overcome this problem can enhance their success, especially that of women in physics. The APS Committee on the Status of Women in Physics has prepared a Web-based survey to document the scope of the problem and to discover creative solutions that have been tried by different institutions. All those who have experience with this challenge are urged to visit http://physics.wm.edu/survey and fill out the questionnaire. The responses will be kept entirely confidential, and summary results will be reported to the physics community when the survey is complete.
