1. Gender Mix Revolution In Graduate Veterinary Science 
From: Jeremy King (jking2clemson.edu) 
 
The B section of the May 25 (2007) Chronicle of Higher Education contains an 
intriguing article on the evolution of the gender mix in doctoral veterinary 
medicine programs:  from 8% in 1969 to 77% today. Besides this dramatic 
evolution, perhaps the most interesting thing reported was the current lack 
of understanding about why or how this evolution happened.

2. Archana Dubey Named Blewett Scholarship Winner for 2007 
From: WIPHYS June 22, 2007 
 
Archana Dubey of the University of Central Florida is the winner of the 2007 
M. Hildred Blewett Scholarship.  She was selected from a field of 
well-qualified applicants by a subcommittee of the Committee on the Status 
of Women in Physics.  Archana is a theoretical physicist who is currently 
Lecturer at the University of Central Florida in Orlando.   She will 
investigate the electronic structure of oxyhemoglobin.

The Blewett Scholarship award was made possible by a generous bequest from 
M. Hildred Blewett, a particle accelerator physicist who died in 2004.  The 
scholarship consists of a one-year award of up to $45,000 which can be used 
toward dependent care, salary, travel, equipment, and tuition and fees.

3. KITP TO HOST PROGRAM ON DYNAMO THEORY 
From: WIPHYS June 22, 2007 
 
The KITP at UCSB is hosting a program on Dynamo Theory from May 5 - July 
18 2008. The coordinators (Chris Jones, Dan Lathrop, Steve Tobias, and 
Ellen Zweibel) are soliciting an interdisciplinary group of theorists 
and experimentalists who work on dynamos from the lab to the cosmos. 
Please see the KITP website (www.kitp.ucsb.edu) to apply.

4. Tenure Track Faculty in Space Physics, University of Alaska Fairbanks 
From: WIPHYS June 22, 2007 
 
The Geophysical Institute and the Physics Department at the University of 
Alaska Fairbanks seek applicants to fill a joint tenure-track position in 
space physics and/or aeronomy. The position offers opportunities for 
research at the Geophysical Institute as a member of the Space Physics and 
Aeronomy Group and carries the responsibility for teaching as a faculty 
member in the Physics Department. The appointment is intended at the level 
of assistant professor. Appointments to higher rank may be considered for 
qualified candidates. The successful applicant will pursue externally funded 
research in physics of the thermosphere, ionosphere, and/or magnetosphere. 
Areas of research that are currently pursued by the Geophysical Institute's 
Space Physics and Aeronomy Group include space plasma simulations, 
ionospheric modeling, optical and radar observations of the ionosphere and 
aurora, rocket experiments, and data analysis of spacecraft- or ground-based 
observations. Research facilities include an instrumentation 
laboratory, machine and electronic shops at the Geophysical Institute, 
the Poker Flat Research Range with rocket launch facilities, the Davis 
Science Center, the Lidar facility, and NSF's Poker Flat Incoherent 
Scatter Radar (PFISR), and the Arctic Region Supercomputing 
Center. Opportunities exist for collaboration with other groups within 
the Geophysical Institute, such as Atmospheric Sciences, as well as 
other units of the University, notably the School of Engineering.
