|Education Committee Commissions Career Satisfaction Survey|
The ASCB Education Committee has appointed a Subcommittee (Joan Brugge, Gerald Fischbach, Elizabeth Gavis, Arthur Lander, Dick McIntosh, and Frank Solomon) with the charge of determining the career progression of cell biologists and how that progression compares to a priori expectations. To that end, the Society has commissioned a professional survey firm, Belden & Russonello, to measure career progress, expectations and satisfaction within the ASCB membership.
The survey is being mailed to a random sample of 3,000 members (about 30%) of the ASCB. Designed for busy researchers, it is expected to take 10 minutes to answer. Members are urged to look for a survey in the mail and to answer and return it promptly to Belden & Russonello. All data will be aggregated; no responses will be reported, even to the Society, individually. A high yield is critical to producing robust data that will allow the Society to contribute to national policy with confidence on behalf of the membership.

AAAS Award for International Scientific Cooperation
NSF LExEn Interdisciplinary Research Program
Research is required to enhance understanding of the microbial systems on Earth, particularly with respect to their diversity and the mechanisms that allow microbes to survive and alter extreme environments.
Research projects of 2–5 years duration are appropriate. Funds available to support projects under this Special Competition are expected to total approximately $6 million. NSF anticipates making approximately 20 awards in fiscal year 1997 depending on the quality of the proposals received and availability of funds. Neither submitting to the present competition nor receiving an award from this competition will be a prerequisite for research proposals to future LExEn announcements.
Proposals submitted in response to this Announcement of Opportunity will be accepted from colleges, universities, and other not-for-profit institutions in the United States. Proposals should be prepared and submitted in accordance with the guidelines provided in the NSF brochure, Grant Proposal Guide (GPG) NSF 95-27. Single copies of this brochure are available at no cost from:Forms and Publications Unit National Science Foundation 4201 Wilson Blvd., Room P15 Arlington, VA 22230 Phone: (703) 306-1130 Email.
