U.S. military lacks citizen researchers for nanoscience

from the selective-service dept.
According to an article from United Press International ("Lack of scientists hurts nanoresearch", by K. Hearn, 5 June 2001) research in nanoscience at U.S. military laboratories is being hampered a shortage of U.S. citizens trained in physical sciences and by social attitudes about foreign-born scientists. The U.S. military requires that researchers in its laboratories be U.S. citizens. The article also notes that in a speech in April, James Murday, head of the chemistry division at the Naval Research Lab in Washington, said other nations, Singapore and Germany especially, were also having trouble finding qualified scientists to conduct nanoscale research.
