Conferences, Fellowships, Forums and Networking Opportunities
- SBU Scholars in BioMedical Sciences - is accepting applications for the fourth year of the program. PhD graduate students early in their training career (after their qualifying exams, in the second or third year of their studies) will be selected to engage in clinical experiences and work on a small, clinically-relevant research project. Each student and their PhD advisor will be teamed up with a clinical mentor to design the project and set out the other experiences that the student will undertake in the School of Medicine (for example, going on rounds, attending clinical seminars, and interacting with patients). The mandatory component of the training will take place over the course of a year, but the interactions will hopefully continue to take place throughout the students' graduate studies. Five such student/teams will be selected. Visit https://medicine.stonybrookmedicine.edu/sbms/ for more information about the program. The application process is described on the website along with a list of potential clinical mentors and their departmental affiliations and research interests (although if more physicians would like to be included, please let us know). Applications are due by 5pm on June 10, 2016.
- Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology - The annual Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology is an international award which honors young scientists for their outstanding contributions to neurobiological research based on methods of molecular and cell biology. The winner and finalists are selected by a committee of independent scientists, chaired by Science's Senior Editor, Dr. Peter Stern. Researchers who are not older than 35 years are invited to apply. The winner will receive Prize money of US$25,000, publication in Science of an essay by the winner about his/her research, full support to attend the Prize Ceremony held in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in the USA, and an invitation to visit Eppendorf in Hamburg, Germany. Up to three finalists are honored, too! Application Deadline: June 15, 2016. Learn more at: www.eppendorf.com/prize
- Insight Data Science Fellows Program - Applications are now being accepted for this intensive seven-week post-doctoral training fellowship bridging the gap between academia and data science. Deadlines vary based upon location. For more details and to access the application link, visit: http://www.insightdatascience.com/
- SACNAS/National Research Mentoring Network - The overarching goal of the National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) is to change the face of the biomedical workforce by increasing the number of researchers from underrepresented backgrounds in the biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social sciences workforce by directly addressing the benefits and challenges of diversity, inclusivity and culture within mentoring relationships and more broadly the research workforce. NRMN is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health, National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). On the NRMN site you’ll find: Virtual mentoring opportunities based on your interests; Access to webinars; Research and professional development resources; News about diversity initiatives and programs; Access to best practices in mentoring. Get started on the NRM website: https://nrmnet.net/nih-notice/?utm_source=NRMN%20Partner&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=FASEBDec11_SACNAS or email questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Career Opportunities (Including Postdoc)
- SUNY Old Westbury - has a full-time, temporary opening for a plant biologist/plan ecologist for the 2016-2017 academic year. There will be a subsequent search for a full-time, tenure-track opening starting fall 2017 in plant bio/ecology during next academic year. If you are interested, contact Dr. Fernando Nieto at email@example.com
- Stanford University - The Precourt Institute for Energy and the Department of Management Science and Engineering at Stanford is considering applications for an assistant professor, tenure track position in Energy Systems. The faculty member would conduct research and teach in energy systems viewed as a whole, including technologies and human choices shaping energy production and consumption. Energy Systems research could include technological trends (e.g., advances in information and communication technology, enabled smart grids, microgrids, novel sensing and measurement abilities) and/or socioeconomic issues (e.g., human decisions in demand response programs, incentives for adoption of renewables or energy efficient appliances, smart-device control of home and business energy consumption, behavioral change, institutional barriers). An earned PhD, evidence of the ability to pursue a program of research, and a strong commitment to graduate and undergraduate teaching are required. A successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels and to build and lead a team of graduate students in PhD research. Applications should include a resume, brief statements of research and teaching interests, and the names and e-mail addresses of at least three references. Candidates should apply online at: http://soe-apps.stanford.edu/FacultyApplyMSaE-Precourt Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
- NETL uses a pool-based application process to identify and select interns and postgraduate researchers. This process allows for multiple hiring managers to review your application, in turn granting you a larger selection committee. However, there are times when NETL will post for immediate job openings. Visit http://orau.gov/netl/open-projects/projects.html to review and apply for available positions.
- Stevens Institute of Technology - Stevens Institute of Technology invites applications for a biomedical engineering faculty position in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry and Biological Sciences. We have an open tenure track/tenured position at the level of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor. The successful candidate will be responsible for initiating an externally funded research program and teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and will receive a competitive start-up package in support of his or her research. Candidates should hold a PhD in biomedical engineering, or a closely related engineering discipline, and have significant post-doctoral or prior faculty experience that is complementary to our existing strengths: http://www.stevens.edu/ses/bcb. Preference will be given to candidates with research interests or experience in biomechanics and kinematics, who might make use of our marker-less motion capture laboratory, or in cardiovascular or pulmonary engineering physiology. Interested candidates should apply online here and submit as a single PDF file: a cover letter, a statement of teaching philosophy, a research plan, a curriculum vitae and the names of at least three references. The review of applications will begin immediately.
