faculty positions for spouses

Sat Aug 13 12:36:37 EST 1994

I am gathering information on what other universities have done to 
accomodate spouses of biology (or other science) faculty members.  Any 
information on the situation at your university would be much appreciated. 
 For example, are any couples splitting or otherwise sharing a single 
position, have new positions been created, and if so, what fraction of 
full time are people appointed at?  Also, what problems have arisen during 
negotiations for such arrangements or after they have been made?  How many 
faculty members have left a university because their spouse has been 
unable to obtain a position?
