Jennifer, 30

Will be laid off from a university research lab in April.

Jennifer had been working for three years as a research specialist at a university in Baltimore studying alzheimers and stroke in rats. She was informed in January that funding for her research would end in April. Since then she has applied to over 30 positions within her university (as well as many outside the school), but has only received one offer for a part-time position with no benefits. She and her husband are attempting to make payments on a house they bought together in Columbia three years ago, but have as yet been unable to re-finance.
