RSVP for luncheon with Profs. Jim Beatty and Amy Connolly on Seeking dual careers in academia

On Friday, April 29, 2016, SWiP will be hosting a luncheon with physics professors from the department Jim Beatty and Amy Connolly. Both are married to a fellow academic (in physics and outside of physics) at Ohio State. They’ll discuss how they handled the job market in the search of two coinciding academic jobs (a common scenario in the so-called “two-body problem”). Please RSVP by Wednesday, April 27th if you would like to receive lunch! If you miss the deadline, feel free to bring a lunch and attend the discussion. We hope to see you there!
