1. Women at Work Museum
> From WIPHYS of December 3, 2003

Those of you who attended the APS Centennial in 1999 will
remember the wonderful Women Doing Physics photo display
assembled by the Committee on the Status of Women in Physics.
Some of the photos were featured at the recent opening of the new
Women at Work Museum in Attleboro, MA. The full display will
be on view during their next opening on February 28 on Math,
Science, Engineering and Technology. The exhibit will celebrate
the achievements of women throughout history and show how
math, science, engineering and technology expand career options.
The museum is located on Route 123 at 35 County Street,
Attleboro, MA (open Saturdays and Sundays - call 508-222-4430
to check for hours).

2. IUPAP Launches Pilot Program for Women
> From WIPHYS of December 3, 2003

We are launching a third edition of the pilot program to fund the
attendance of women from developing and eastern European
countries at regional conferences and schools this fall. We propose
funding 25 women at a maximum cost of $800 each. This would
require $20000. Please, circulate the information below.

We need to receive applications for these grants by February 29th,
2004. Recipients will be chosen by the IUPAP Working Group on
Women in Physics in March, and we will notify people by April
15th, 2003. Only women physicists from Eastern Europe or
developing countries may apply. For those applying for this grant
we will need the following things:

1.Your complete contact information
2.Year since your PhD (or undergraduate degree for graduate students):
3.Brief description of the conference or workshop you wish to attend
4.Brief statement of how attending the conference or school will enhance
  your career
5.Letter of recommendation from one colleague
6.A breakdown of the amount of money (up to $800) required to attend.
  (Ex: airfare - 400., lodging - 200, per diem - 200 (local transportation
  and food)

Send all information to Jackie Beamon-Kiene, beamonaps.org by
February 29th, 2004

4. Faculty Position, Dept. of Physics & Astronomy, Johns Hopkins University
> From WIPHYS of December 2, 2003

The Department of Physics and Astronomy of the Johns Hopkins
University anticipates making a series of faculty appointments over
the next few years. The department is seeking candidates who will
enhance its efforts in astronomy, condensed matter physics and
particle physics, or build bridges between the disciplines. The most
immediate interest is in the area of astronomy and astrophysics.
The successful candidates will be expected to teach effectively at
the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The appointments will most likely be at the level of Assistant
Professor, but more senior candidates may be considered in
exceptional cases. Applicants should send three letters of
reference, a curriculum vitae and a bibliography to

 Faculty Search Committee
 c/o Ms. Pamela Carmen
 Department of Physics and Astronomy
 Johns Hopkins University
 3400 N. Charles Street
 Baltimore, MD 21218.

To receive full consideration, applications must be received by
February 1, 2004. The Johns Hopkins University is an Equal
Opportunity, Affirmative Action Employer and encourages
applications from women and minority candidates.

5. Faculty Position in All Subfields of Astrophysics, Johns Hopkins University
> From WIPHYS of December 2, 2003

The Department of Physics and Astronomy of the Johns Hopkins
University invites applications for a tenure track faculty position in
astrophysics. The department will consider applicants in all
subfields of astrophysics. The appointments will most likely be at
the level of Assistant Professor, but more senior candidates may be
considered in exceptional cases. The successful candidate will be
expected to teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate
levels.

Current faculty are active in developing astronomical
instrumentation (particularly for space-based platforms),
observational astronomy across a wide range of wavelengths, and
theory. Current research interests include planetary astrophysics,
the interstellar medium, stellar populations, high-energy
astrophysics, active galaxies, galaxy formation and evolution, and
cosmology. Johns Hopkins is a member of the Sloan Digital Sky
Survey and ARC consortia and is playing a leading role in the
National Virtual Observatory. It is also the operations center for
the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer and was the lead
institution in the development of the Advanced Camera for Surveys
on the Hubble Space Telescope. The department cooperates
closely with the adjacent Space Telescope Science Institute.

Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, together with a
bibliography and a brief description of research interests and goals,
and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent by the deadline
below, to:
  Astrophysics Search Committee
  c/o Ms. Pamela Carmen
  Department of Physics and Astronomy
  Johns Hopkins University
  3400 N. Charles Street
  Baltimore, MD 21218.

To receive full consideration, application materials must be received
by February 1, 2004. The Johns Hopkins University is an Equal
