Career Profiles

The AAS Committee on the Status of Women in Astronomy (CSWA) and the AAS Committee on Employment have compiled dozens of interviews highlighting the diversity of career trajectories available to astronomers both inside and outside of academia. The interviews share advice and lessons learned from individuals on those various paths.

Below is our list of participants, with links to the blog posts showcasing their responses (if there's not a link, it just means the response hasn't been posted yet — stay tuned). Some are external links pointing to the CSWA Women in Astronomy blog or the AstroBetter blog.

If you have recommendations for additional participants, please email the person's name, email address, and field of work to Laura Trouille Northwestern University.
