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.
