Senior Women: Physics & Astronomy Departments

CSWA would like to expand their recent study of Senior Women in Astronomy departments to include those in Physics & Astronomy departments. At this time we are only considering departments in the US with a PhD program.

I need your help to compile these data. If you work in a Physics & Astronomy department (in the US with a PhD program), could you please send me a list of senior faculty (tenured professors only) with a designation for male or female? For any joint appointments, I would also need the fractional commitment of that individual to the Physics & Astronomy department.

These data should be for the entire department, not just the astronomy component of the department. Note: assistant professors, research professors, junior members, part-time instructors, soft-money researchers, postdocs, emeritus faculty, etc. should NOT be included in this list.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions and comments.
