Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) will offer a semester-long, tuition-supported program for advanced STEM undergraduates majoring in science, engineering, or mathematics that features a significant, for-credit research experience guided by a WHOI scientist.
Florida State University is continuing its major interdisciplinary initiative in the broadly defined area of Coastal & Marine Research. During the 2014-15 academic year the initiative will be recruiting up to five tenure-track faculty members; the search is open with respect to rank. We invite applications from researchers active in coastal system research in the areas of geomorphology, hydrology, physical oceanography and air-sea interactions. Candidates with research interests that bridge across disciplines, including life sciences, are encouraged to apply. The search seeks to complement the existing strengths in coastal and marine research in the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science, the Department of Biological Science and the FSU Coastal and Marine Laboratory.
The Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science is seeking applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Geophysics. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree at time of appointment. The search is in the broad area of solid Earth geophysics and the area of specialization is open. Collaborative research with current departmental strengths in marine geology, climatology-paleoclimatology, geochemistry, hydrogeology, and structure/tectonics is encouraged. A well-qualified candidate will have a record that reflects a high level of research productivity.
Janice Huff, weekday chief meteorologist for NBC 4 New York, is one of New York’s most recognized forecasters. She is a meteorology alum and in 2002 was named a “Grad Made Good” by FSU. She stopped by the EOAS weathercasting studio to talk with students and share some advice for those looking to make weathercasting and meteorology their career.
The Weather Channel recently featured how Lincoln High School here in Tallahassee is using weather measurements from Weather STEM, a project created by EOAS alum Ed Mansouri, to keep students safe during practices and competitions. Ed has donated and installed automated weather sensors at over 20 schools in Leon county and will be donating one per county across Florida.
American Water Resources Association, Florida Section Student Research Poster Contest - Call For Abstracts
Florida Gulf Coast University will be the site of the 24th Annual Southwest Florida Water Resources Conference. This conference is hosted in collaboration by eight professional societies and public interest groups, as the premier event in water resources technical information in southwest Florida. The conference brings together researchers, managers, agency staff, consultants, and other interested parties to discuss ongoing scientific research and innovative projects, to share ideas, and to increase awareness of the issues of water supply, water use efficiency, waterbody protection, watershed health, and environmental sustainability facing Florida today.
This student research poster contest is open to all Florida students and students conducting research in Florida. We seek abstracts in any of a wide range of topics pertaining to the field of water resources.
The Deep-C Consortium has partnered with the Boys and Girls Club - Afterschool Program to provide four local schools with free ocean science presentations. So far, we have visited two elementary schools and it has been great to interact with the students. Volunteer assistants are essential to this program. Simply having more people allows us to expose the kids to more hands-on activities. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Brittany Pace at firstname.lastname@example.org.
