And remember that doing a postdoc abroad puts a whopping constraint on one's
ability to explore and exploit thoroughly what is already a monumentally
tough job market back here in the states.  More often than not, the plan and
practice is "I'll do a second postdoc back in the USA so I can get a
job...(insert genuflection here)".

          We recognize this problem and will make adjustments in the
          new program to permit "job" trips as well as funding
          following the foreign experience.
