Краткое описание

Many scientists are married to other scientists, and of those, many are raising families. When both spouses are committed to a career in a scientific discipline, there will undoubtably be pressure on both for time at work. Committment to a family introduces more demands for time at home. Balancing both career and family is a challenge that is affecting many more scientists today than ever before. Unfortunately, it is usually the woman scientist who drops out or down when pressures become too great. One strategy to combine two demanding careers and children is for the couple to split an academic position. Both careers advance at the same rate, both spouses retain the prestige and benefits of having a tenure-track or tenured faculty position, and household duties can be shared equally.
