I am a member of a research team at the University of Southern California 
examining how and why individuals choose careers in the sciences.  Among 
those we are interested in interviewing are college professors in the 
following areas:  Physics, chemistry, biology, geology, engineering, and 
computer science.  We are particularly interested in interviewing female 
professors.  Our survey takes about half an hour to complete and can be 
administered via e-mail.  Respondents will be paid for taking part (some 
participants will be asked to view a 45 minute PBS video about science 
careers; these participants will be paid extra).
Any interested individuals can contact me at my e-mail address,
