Cardiologist Wanted, must have strong Cleaning Skills

The effects of "the economy" has hit home with Academic Institutions.  Due to Budget cuts At the University of Iowa, faculty members have been ask to 'Adapt a space' in their department's hallways, bathrooms, common areas.  Seems that the custodial department has been hit with a round of cuts and faculty members are being asked to 'adapt a space'.

I know a gentleman who received his PhD in Philosophy from the University of Iowa about 20 years ago.  He was unable to successfully land a job in his field, so he became a custodian, also known in Academia as a maintenance engineer.  He liked the pay and the hours so well that he never sought another position.  He told me last year that he was going to retire in 2010. I hope he gets a Golden handshake!

    Jonathan,
    I think a little cleaning makes us all better people. They should keep the policy as the economy improves. The research may improve if all maintenance engineers were asked to adopt a research project by adding a viewpoint not normally seen in universities.
