Clark University undergraduate research opportunity

Clark University seeks talented students to participate in cutting edge research on land change, vulnerability, and sense of place in New England. In summer 2012, we will continue our NSF funded Human-Environment Regional Observatory (HERO) REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program but with a new research focus. HERO Fellows will analyze the causes and consequences of the Asian longhorned beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis), an invasive wood-boring insect that is a severe threat to both urban and ex-urban forests in New England. The Asian longhorned beetle (ALB) infestation of central Massachusetts poses a greater stress on ecosystem services, as well as response groups ranging from federal/state resource managers to local residents, than any previous ALB outbreak in other localities in the United States.

  Our preference is for rising juniors and seniors (younger students with research experience will be considered), who demonstrate a curiosity and passion for human and environment interconnections. Students will be paid $4,500 for the eight weeks of full-time research, travel plus a substantial allowance for room and board, from June 4 to July 27. Students will work with faculty and graduate student mentors, get hands-on research experience and gain skills related to public speaking and working collaboratively with diverse peers.

  Attached please find our HERO-REU information sheet and the application form. Distributing this announcement to your students is greatly appreciated.

  Please note the application deadline of Monday, March 1st.  If you have questions about the program, please see the contact information in the application form, or contact me at the email address provided below.

  Thanks for your consideration!

Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Science Education

Subject: Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Science Education

Dear Academic Leader –

I hope this letter finds you well and that the semester is progressing nicely. The purpose of this correspondence is to let you know of an exciting new Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program at Ship that focuses specifically on science education (

The science-specific MAT is designed for recent college graduates, professionals, and returning/retiring military personnel, and who already hold a degree in a scientific discipline and who wish to teach science in either a middle school or high school. Completion of the 18-month program will result in both a Master’s degree and teacher certification through the Pennsylvania Department of Education (pending approval this spring). Students will complete a sequence of six courses to teach research-based principles of safe and effective science instruction as well as a twelve-week student teaching practicum. Students will also complete and present a research project and comprehensive teaching portfolio. Instruction will be delivered via a combination of periodic face-to-face sessions at the Dixon University Center in Harrisburg and online instruction. Thus, MAT students will have the opportunity to maintain their employment. Observations and co-teaching with experienced science teachers in the region are embedded throughout the program. 

                We had the good fortune of receiving a grant through the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) Chancellor’s Office to develop the program and we look forward to addressing the growing need in the Commonwealth and region for highly qualified secondary science teachers.

I would appreciate it if you could spread the word to your students about this new opportunity, and I would be happy to answer any questions that either you or your students may have at any time. We certainly do not wish to “poach” students from your existing post-baccalaureate programs, but rather to provide another option that might be more suited to their needs. More information can be found on the aforementioned website regarding admission requirements, application procedures, and informational sessions.

Subject: [NEES] Summer program: Food, Farm, and Sustainability at Hampshire College

Hello (and apologies for cross-postings),

I am writing to announce the inaugural Food, Farm, and Sustainability
Institute at Hampshire College, a six week summer academic program
designed for undergraduate students interested in sustainable
agriculture and food studies. Please forward this email to anyone you
know who might be interested in applying!

Overview: From June 4 to July 13, 2012, students, faculty, staff, and
alumni will come together as a living and learning community at
Hampshire College. Students will gain hands-on work experience with the
guidance of the Hampshire College Farm Center staff, learn through
inquiry-based projects mentored by faculty with a range of expertise,
and acquire ownership of knowledge through independent research
projects. The institute will follow food from its origin in the soil,
through plant cultivation and animal management, address issues in
public health and politics, and end up in the kitchen, breaking bread
and assessing the character of the food we produce and eat. There will
be numerous opportunities for community building through roundtable
dinner discussions with local farmers and food producers, a weekly film
series, and field trips to local farms emphasizing environmental and
community sustainability.

Tuition for the six week program is $3,400, including communal lunch
costs (students are responsible for breakfast and dinners as well as all
weekend meals). Lodging is an additional $800 for students who wish to
reside on campus. ?Hampshire recommends 8 academic credits for
completion of the 6-week program. Students are encouraged to check with
their home institutions for credit equivalent.

Online Application Deadline: March 1, 2012

Institute, please visit the website:
