The Toxicology Mentoring and Skills Development Training Program (ToxMSDT), housed at the University of California Davis, is a special opportunity for underrepresented undergraduate STEM science students to participate in a year-long toxicology training and mentoring program.
Funded by the National Institute of Health, the goal of this program is to attract diverse, high achieving undergraduate students from around the United States to pursue careers in biomedical research, especially in the field of toxicology. Successful applicants will be teamed with a mentor and visit the mentor’s work site, attend the annual Society of Toxicology meeting, engage in online learning modules, and present their program successes at the annual Capstone Event. Travel cost support for programmatic activities will be provided by ToxMSDT. This program supplements the regular academic pursuits of the ToxMSDT students.
The University of Lynchburg’s Westover Honors College is excited to announce the 2022 Virginias Collegiate Honors Council Meeting, themed “Reconnecting”. The conference dates are Friday, April 8 and Saturday, April 9, 2022. The meeting aims to unite Honors students from Virginia and West Virginia for interdisciplinary collaboration and community building.
VCHC seeks proposals from students of two- and four-year college and university Honors Programs across Virginia and West Virginia to showcase students’ innovative ideas and learning experiences, and also highlight the diverse opportunities in Honors education and activities around both states. Deans and Directors are also encouraged to register students who may benefit from attending and developing professional skills through peer interactions.
The Computer Science Department at the University of Texas at Dallas will conduct a ten-week summer research program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) for ten undergraduates from May 20 to July 28, 2022. The focus is on "software safety and reliability," however the technology skills learned by the students have general applicability to research and practice in their future studies.
In addition to work on assigned research projects at UTD, special seminars by industry advisors will be arranged to help the students better understand how software safety and reliability is adopted in practice for real-life applications. This also gives students a chance to directly communicate with practitioners to receive a first-hand account of the work environments and lifestyles in the industry.
The Research Apprenticeship Program (RAP) in the Office of Undergraduate Research is seeking 2 (two) full-time (20 hours/week) Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) for the 2022-2023 academic year. We are looking for candidates with some sort of teaching/mentoring/tutoring experience, as well as research experience. We are open to candidates from all disciplines, but candidates must be able to work effectively and compassionately with students from all backgrounds and disciplines since RAP is a multidisciplinary research program.
