New UCLA Samueli Faculty Lectures

UCLA Samueli School of Engineering has initiated a Future Faculty Lectures program for advanced PhD students and post-doctoral scholars to visit UCLA to present their work.

The UCLA Samueli Future Faculty Lecture Series supports travel and lodging expenses for PhD students and Postdoctoral scholars interested in faculty positions in engineering. Candidates will be evaluated based on their research statement, teaching statement, and statement of contributions to diversity. Samueli Engineering is committed to enhancing the diversity of the faculty, graduate, and undergraduate student populations.

ADVANCE PhD GRA Funding Available for Michigan Tech Students

The Michigan Tech NSF-funded ADVANCE Initiative seeks a PhD student to participate in conducting research on faculty gender and career issues including diversity, equity, and inclusion, particularly in STEM disciplines. Up to three years of graduate RA support with tuition and stipend is available (including summer semesters).

The ideal candidate is an incoming PhD student with a master’s degree or a current PhD student in their first or second year. Discipline or degree program is open, but the student should have or be willing to take courses in survey methods and quantitative analysis. Current familiarity with diversity and inclusion research in STEM is advantageous but not required. Optimally, the research done under the ADVANCE programs will form the core or a substantial portion of the student’s dissertation.

To apply, please submit a cover letter indicating your current academic level, your CV, and a statement of interest regarding diversity and inclusion in STEM via email to Prof. Adrienne Minerick. A multidisciplinary team of faculty will be reviewing application materials, so please try to minimize technical, discipline-specific jargon. Start date is as soon as possible but no later than August 19, 2019.

Student Poster Competition at Michigan Tech June 15-17

Michigan Tech is hosting a local symposium on computational modeling and image processing of biomedical processing between June 15-17, 2019. 20 invited speakers are coming to campus for this symposium. In addition to scientific talks, we are also trying to build some networks for future collaborations among participants.

Also, the symposium will host a student poster competition. If your students are working on research related to themes of the symposium (i.e. modeling/imaging/analytics/data science of biomedical applications), please encourage your students to participate.
