                               Public Meeting

                Trends in Early Life Science Research Careers
                                Lecture Room
                    National Academy of Sciences Building

                      10 A.M., Saturday, April 13, 1996

       The National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences is
  conducting a study of trends in the early research careers of life
  scientists.  The purpose of the study is to document these trends, to
  explore their implications for individual young researchers and for the
  health of the biological research enterprise, and to develop
  recommendations to remedy whatever problems are revealed in the
  committee's work.   Examples of the trends of interest are the
  lengthening of time spent both to obtain the doctorate and in
  postdoctoral training, and the shift in employment opportunities from
  academe to industry.

       The study committee invites data or insights from life-science
  researchers, especially young investigators.  Persons interested in
  making a short presentation at the meeting are asked to contact Al Lazen
  at the address below.  Email contact is preferred.  Speakers will be
  selected to make up a balanced array of opinions or on the basis of the
  potential utility of their data for the committee's purposes.  Persons
  who wish to attend but not make a presentation are welcome.  However,
  seating may be limited and such persons should contact Al Lazen before
  the meeting. Persons who are unable to attend the meeting but who wish to
  submit brief statements are invited to do so.  The NRC cannot pay for the
  travel of participants.
