Session Abstract

In January 2012, the AHA Professional Division put together several workshops under the rubric "The Malleable Ph.D."  One of them, "Finding and Loving a Government Job," was very well attended, but after it ended panelists and audience members expressed some frustration that its hour time limit meant that questions went unasked and unanswered.  Thus, and in response to popular demand, the PD will reprise the session in expanded form, allowing the participants to say a bit more about their history Ph.D.'s and their government jobs and providing audience members with a chance to converse at length with the panelists.
