Opportunity: The Sara Cooper lab at HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology in Huntsville, AL, has a Research Associate I position open. Applications are accepted though the HudsonAlpha system by following the ad link. Although a cover letter is not required it is welcome. https://hudsonalpha.applicantpro.com/jobs/738565.html.  https://hudsonalpha.org/why-work-for-hudsonalpha.

 

About: HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology is a non-profit facility with the mission to use biotechnology and basic biological research to make important discoveries, improve human health, stimulate economic development and inspire young people to seek careers in science. Located in Cummings Research Park in Huntsville, Alabama, one of the world's leading science and technology business parks, the four-story, 270,000 square foot building contains state-of-the-art laboratories for biological research and development in the areas of genomics, genetics and personalized medicine.

 

Lab Overview: The Sara Cooper lab is focused on the application and integration of genomic and metabolomic technologies to improve the human condition. Our lab has broad interests ranging across human biology and venturing into plant genetics. Our current focus is on the identification and characterization of genomic and metabolic alterations in cancer. We are particularly interested in developing novel targets for therapy and identifying signatures associated with patient drug response. We have ongoing projects in pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer, and glioblastoma. We work closely with other laboratories at HudsonAlpha and with our colleagues at neighboring institutions such as UAB. The Cooper lab is a fast-paced environment where we strive to apply cutting edge technology to solve the challenges of human biology. Applicants for this position will be expected to participate in the processing of samples for both metabolomic and genomic assays. Some experience in a biology lab environment is required and familiarity with data analysis (Excel or R), QC, and statistics is preferred. Experience with genomics or metabolomics is a plus, but not required for applicants with a strong desire to learn. Attention to detail, strong organizational skills, and good record keeping are critical. Good communication skills are also critical as the work environment and the projects are highly collaborative. In addition to contributing to the scientific endeavors, this position will involve some laboratory maintenance duties (e.g. stocking supplies, maintaining reagent stocks, cleaning and making solutions). The ideal candidate will be eager to learn new skills, proactive and self-motivated and seeking a position that allows exploration of a variety of projects.

 

Description: The Research Associate carries out research protocols as determined by the Principal Investigator and manager.

The Associate must be able to quickly adapt to modifications in protocol, changes in equipment or upgrades in software, as well as adjustments to the scope of research projects.

 

Research Associate positions fall among several levels that are generally progressive and reflect increasing proficiency. However, it is not to be expected that a Research Associate will continually promote upward. The assigned level depends on the complexity of actual duties and responsibilities and is not necessarily a reflection of tenure.

Research Associates may work directly with materials or with data.

 

Research Associate Level I: Entry level with the intent to develop laboratory proficiency. Hands-on laboratory work, executing research assignments according to protocol established by lead investigator in methodology.  Immediately reviews initial outcomes for quality and consistency.  Maintains an accurate and up-to-date laboratory notebook or tracks work as required by the project or supervisor.  Participates in general lab maintenance such as cleaning freezers, shared lab space and equipment, and stocking shared reagents and consumables.

HARTWIG MEMORIAL INTERNSHIP

Washington DC

 

Opportunity for Political Science students! Your school is one of the colleges and universities across the country whose students have been selected to participate in this year's essay competition, the winner of which will receive a $1,500 cash award to use during the tenure of an internship in Washington, DC.

 

About: Peter Hart, the founder of Hart Research Associates, established this award to honor the memory of Paul Frederick Hartwig, Ph.D. (1941-1997), former Union College professor of political science and senior vice president of Hart Research.  Fred Hartwig believed that it was very important for young Americans to be introduced to the nation's capital, the seat of the federal government and democracy.  He believed that seeing and being a part of what goes on in Washington would enhance young people's appreciation for government, engage them in America's ongoing public conversations and debates, and result in their becoming more informed and involved citizens and leaders.  This internship award is designed to promote and support this experience among college students from all liberal arts disciplines.

 

Description: The award is specifically for students who will intern in or around the nation's capital this summer.  While the student does not necessarily need to work on Capitol Hill or on a political campaign to qualify, the internship must be in the broad field of government, public policy, or politics.

 

To Apply: Obtain a copy of the application materials from the BSC Career Services Office. The deadline for submitting an application is March 26, 2018.

 

Notes: The Internship Award will be based on entries in an essay contest open to any full-time undergraduate student, regardless of academic major, attending a selected liberal arts college or university in the United States. The winner is responsible for finding and securing his or her own internship for the summer of 2018 at an institution in the greater Washington, DC, metropolitan area.  Although the internship may be undertaken in any of a number fields of endeavor, it must be of an appropriately serious nature to provide the kind of experience that students would be unlikely to find outside of the Washington area.

 

Examples of possible placements include working in the office of a member of Congress; doing research or other work for a public policy institute; assisting the efforts of a nonprofit public interest group; or working for a political or public relations consulting group.  The duration of the internship and the specific assignments it comprises will be determined by the individual and the organization for which he or she will work.  On completion of the internship, the student will be expected to prepare a brief written report for the internship award selection committee about what he or she learned from the experience.

The Program: Scholar learning and development happens through two interacting tracts. First, Scholars work as full-time employees learning through experience and work with health professionals. Second, Scholars learn together through monthly meetings that focus on social interaction, learning about faith and health, and coming together to learn through service opportunities with our partners.  The Program aims to… develop socially-conscious leaders… develop understanding of the intersection of faith and health… provide professional & career development… foster community among Scholars.

 

Who Are Scholars? Scholars are vital to the work of Church Health. They interact with staff and patients on a daily basis and bring a new sense of learning and compassion to the work we do. Like most who work with Church Health, many Scholars feel they are called to serve underserved populations. We are here for a purpose.

HORSESHOE FARM FELLOWS

 

Opportunity: Project Horseshoe Farm, a community-based nonprofit organization located in the rural town of Greensboro, Alabama. We are currently seeking interns, and believe that your students at Birmingham-Southern College would be interested in the hands-on experience in nonprofit management, education, and community-based health care that our organization provides.

 

About: Project Horseshoe Farm (HSF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded on the idea that we must come together as communities around our strengths to meet the needs of our children, seniors, and adults with mental illness. Based in the rural community of Greensboro, Alabama, we believe that by working together and sharing responsibility for helping the vulnerable among us, we can create stronger communities and places to live.

 

Through innovative programs such as adult day programs, an Enhanced Independent Living Housing Program, and health partnerships, our organization helps support and improve the health, and quality of life, of adults in our community. We also serve children in our community through a comprehensive K-12 after school program. Our interns are challenged to learn about and become engaged in our wonderful community as they help develop, manage, and serve Project Horseshoe Farm.

 

We are currently accepting applications for winter term. However, applications for spring and summer internships will be held and reviewed during our selection process for that internship in the months of December and February, respectively.

 

To Apply: Application Info/Deadlines: The most important thing to note is that the application for the winter internship is due on October 27th. We will be taking one to two interns for this term. Our January internship is typically one month long, and takes place during the Exploration Term. You may apply for multiple terms, and we will consider you for each term independently. If you do so, please indicate your preferences on the application form where indicated.

 

In order to apply, please complete our application form and return it along with a resume to fellows@projecthsf.org. The second part of the application process will include a Skype interview for selected applicants only — you will be notified about these decisions as they are made. Applicants will be contacted with a final decision no later than November 10, as we are aware that some students will be applying for multiple internships.

Please save your application as LastnameFirstnameHSF before you submit it to us.

 

Funding, etc: Please note that due to the budget constraints of operating a local non-profit, this internship is unpaid. However, we will be able to provide free housing and utilities, so all you will need to pay for yourself is food and gas money.

 

In addition, it’s worth noting that rural Alabama has just about nothing in the way of public transportation. Having a car is a necessity in order to get around. In order to have this internship, you will need to have a car in Greensboro. Either you can drive down to Greensboro or you could choose to fly to Alabama and rent a car for the term; however, then you’ll have to factor in the cost of a 10-week-long car rental if you apply for funding.

 

The Internship: A great first resource for information is Project HSF’s website (https://www.projecthsf.org/). The website includes a whole section dedicated to the gap-year fellowship. The internship will be quite similar to a shorter version of the year-long fellowship, so this section of the website is a great place to start. Exploring the section tabs, such as the “About ” tab, the "Gap-Year Fellowship" tab, and the "Learn More" section under the fellowship tab, will answer a lot of your questions about the internship and give you a sense of what your time with us might look like.

TEACHING ENGLISH IN CHINA

ESL Teacher

 

Opportunity: Are you interested in ESL teaching in China? If so, consider this important information. In China, the government agency responsible for the granting of Letters of Invitation is SAFEA (State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs).

 

Qualifications: SAFEA sets the following basic criteria for ESL Teachers: Hold a bachelor degree or higher. Be a native speaker.  Passport country is recognized as having English as their native language, OR hold an earned degree from such a country. Have 2 years teaching experience, OR Hold a degree in education, OR Hold a recognized TEFL/TESL certificate.

 

SAFEA has a program called TEFL in China, a 120-hour course not only providing the usual TEFL content, but with a strong focus on teaching in China. Chinese students are significantly different to western students in many regards, and social and cultural issues play a big part too, as well as differences in dealing with Chinese employers.

 

There are several TEFL in China training centers, but we are unique for one very special reason; our training center is run by HBUT (Hubei University of Technology) using experienced ESL teachers. We all very much understand the challenges a western teacher will face here, and we know how to deal with them. Moreover, we don't just teach TEFL; we show new (and even old) teachers how to be effective in this very different environment. How to enjoy teaching Chinese students; to understand their differences and what motivates them.

 

There are two parts to the TEFL in China course; one part online, and one part in-classroom. Candidates can arrange through us to take the online portion while still at home. This step yields an electronic certificate sufficient for the purposes of 3.iii, and allows a school or private institution in China to obtain a Letter of Invitation on behalf of the prospective ESL teacher. This allows for the obtaining of the all-important Z-visa to legally enter China to work.

A 7-day in-classroom portion will then be completed after the candidate arrives in China. Upon completion, the trainee then receives a hard-copy official TEFL in China certificate; the preferred TEFL certification in China.

 

As a university we have apartments available for our teachers, and can rent these to trainees during their stay at HBUT. The apartments are less than three years old, and fully self-contained including air-conditioning, kitchen with utensils, flat screen TV, PC with printer and free Wifi, and western-style bathroom.

 

Finally, HBUT provides ESL job searching assistance to all attendees of our courses.
