Physicists show bias against female job applicants

There's an interesting article about a recent study published in PNAS about the effect of gender on job applications at Physics World.

It would be nice to think that mathematics is immune from this but some of the reasons I that have heard for not considering certain applicants for jobs, not to mention the Fields Medal tally, suggests that we can improve. Something to keep in mind next time we hire.
