REU in Marine Science at the University of California Santa Barbara

A Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) summer fellowship is open at the Marine Science
Institute, University of California Santa Barbara. Duration is 12 weeks, June 3-Aug 29, although
these dates can be somewhat flexible to accommodate academic schedules. We invite applications
from qualified, highly motivated undergraduate students from U.S. colleges/universities to
participate in a 12-week lab and field based summer research experience. The fellow will be
involved with an NSF-funded project on the use of particulate organic matter by marine suspension
feeders, and will do a project likely focused on some aspect of trophic relationships in kelp forests
off the California coast. The student will learn ecological and biochemical methods to explore this
topic, and will be required to write a report, in the format of a scientific paper, and give a
presentation on their project at the end of the summer. Travel costs to and from UCSB will be
covered, and the student will be provided with a $500/week stipend for living expenses. This is an
intensive full-time commitment and any work or educational activities outside the program must be approved.

Eligibility
You are eligible if you are an undergraduate student who has completed at least two years of study
towards a bachelor’s degree, and you will still be an undergraduate in the fall after the summer
program. Students from underrepresented groups and institutions with limited research
opportunities are especially encouraged to apply. Experience with scientific diving is desirable but
not required. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. and its
possessions. The University of California is an equal opportunity employer and educator.

Check it! GRAB Peru Expedition May 2014

Dear Colleagues in Environmental Studies ,
Do you have a taste for travel and adventure? Do you enjoy being challenged both physically and intellectually? If so, we are inviting you to become a member of our GRAB Peruvian Mountaineering expedition, scheduled for May 18-June 2, 2014. In the true spirit of experiential education we have designed a trip to the Cordillera Blanca that incorporates a unique blend of service, cultural immersion and alpine mountaineering. Over the course of two weeks, the expedition will explore the high Andean city of Huaraz, participate in a homestay and service project with the traditional villagers of Jerush, and summit the glaciers atop Maparaju peak, with the assistance of burros and native Peruvian mountain guides. Together we will explore a culture and landscape that is rapidly disappearing under pressures from industrial development and climate change.
If this sounds like an experience you could benefit from and contribute to please attend the information session this Thursday, February 27, at 5:00PM at the GRAB office in Plank 117. The expedition is open to all members of the Gettysburg College community, including family. NO MOUNTAINEERING EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED! This expedition has been designed to be accessible as possible. The experience is so valuable that the College is generously subsidizing the cost of each participant. We will be able to work with individuals if further financial assistance is needed. If you cannot make the information session or would simply like to discuss the trip in more detail please contact Rachel or myself and we will be happy to meet with you and answer your questions. Attached is the expedition description, which is also found on the GRAB page of the college website. The deadline for sign-ups is March 17th and space is limited, so if you are interested in joining the expedition please don’t wait to get in touch! Sincerely,
Danny Williams ‘14
Rachel Dinsmore ‘15

Dear Professor John A. Commito,

My name is Katie Drumm and I am the Summer Staffing Director for the Fund for the Public Interest, a national non-profit that runs campaigns on environmental and social justice issues for groups like Environment America, U.S. PIRG and the Human Rights Campaign. Right now we’re hiring students for summer jobs on our campaigns. We are holding information sessions and interviews at Gettysburg on 2/25 and 2/26. I was hoping you could help spread the word to students on your list, I imagine some of them will be interested. There is a blurb below with all of the information, can you please send it out?

We would also love to come make a special announcement in your class(es). Please respond back as to which class or classes would be best.

Thanks for your consideration!

Impact issues that matter this summer with the Fund!

The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country. We run campaigns for the Human Rights Campaign, USPIRG, and Environment America. This summer we will be in over 50 cities, working and lobbying to help win environmental and social justice campaigns.

Last summer our staff helped stop toxic gas drilling, worked to end subsidies for junk food, and built support for equal rights for all Americans- all while building valuable leadership skills. Currently, we have paid positions open on our campaign staff in each of our locations. We require that interested candidates are hard workers and have excellent communication skills.

As a member of our staff, you will fundraise, build membership for our partner groups, and educate and activate citizens on pressing issues. You will also have the opportunity to organize press conferences and build coalitions with other non-profit organizations. While on staff, you gain knowledge of pressing concerns our country is facing, learn how to effectively generate public support, and obtain a firm understanding of the political process.

We will be holding information sessions and interviews at Gettysburg on Tuesday, 2/25 in room 230 in the Union and Wednesday, 2/26 in room 126 in the Union at 10 am, 2 pm, 4pm and 6 pm both days.

To apply, please visit www.JobsThatMatter.org or call 1-800-75-EARTH (753-2784).
