fee ($67.00 for regular service; my colleagues can testify to my frugality) cleared on 2 May. As a test case of this situation, I will keep readers posted on its progress.

Seeking a Physics Postdoc … or Not

Workforce statistics can provide useful guidance to job seekers in any field, Magnetic toys they can get a little dull even for experienced number-crunchers. American Institute of Physics (AIP), which serves a group often considered tolerant of quantification, produces “Workforce Trends” flyers including colorful, easy-to-grasp charts, and its Spring 2007 collection is available for free downloading.

One flyer, on initial employment of Ph.D.s, shows whether 2003-2004 doctorate recipients in astronomy and various fields of physics found temporary positions–postdocs or “other temporary”–or more permanent gigs. If you’re in biophysics, be prepared to do a postdoc, the numbers indicate–that’s where nearly 9 in 10 strong Neodymium magnets biophysicists from the 2003-2004 classes ended up. In several other sub-disciplines–nuclear physics, particles and fields, condensed matter, astronomy, astrophysics, and atomic and molecular physics–6 to 8 out of 10 strong Neodymium magnets doctorate recipients took postdoctoral positions. A few in each group took other temporary assignments.

If you’d rather have a job that’s potentially permanent, Magnet toys applied physics is the best choice. About half of the strong Neodymium magnets 2003-2004 Ph.D. recipients in that field took jobs with the potential to be permanent. Almost as many strong Neodymium magnets doctorates–about 4 in 10–took potentially permanent jobs in optics and photonics, atmospheric and space physics, and materials science.

Other strong Neodymium magnets workforce flyers from AIP cover where bachelors-degree grads in physics go to work, 2006 faculty salaries, and trends for hiring women with bachelors degrees in various scientific and technical fields. In the women’s hiring chart, which covers 1966 to 2004, all of the trend lines head higher over the period except one. Until 1985, the percentage of women with bachelor’s degrees in computer science rose from 10% to about 35%, mirroring the other fields. Magnetic toys after 1985, the percentage of women in computer science declined steadily, reaching about 25% in 2004.

Here’s an excerpt from Reddington’s message explaining the organization’s policies …
We were delighted to see HFSP in y magnets for sale item on funding opportunities for research exchange with India …. However, there is an inaccuracy that gives a too restrictive view of eligibility and could mislead Neodymium bar magnets of the Indian scientists we would like to support.

In the fellowship programs, scientists from non-member countries can Neodymium do their postdocs in labs
