Workshop on Careers in Chemistry planned for October 16, 2010(10 am - 3 pm) at Drexel U., event for undergrads and high school students, funded by NSF CAREER. Email Dr. Liz Papish (email@example.com) if you are a college or high school student and you want more info or plan to attend, workshop participation and lunch provided free of charge. RSVP by October 8th, 2010 to firstname.lastname@example.org, please include the subject line "NSF Chem Careers Workshop" on your email, indicate your name, college or HS and year (freshman, etc). Workshop is limited to 100 participants, so RSVP early.
Workshop will feature a panel presentation featuring different chemistry careers, including representatives from research universities and liberal arts colleges (schools with differing teaching/research emphasis), chemical industry and non-traditional chemistry careers (patent law, forensics, etc.). The panel members will also be at various stages of their careers, from graduate students and postdocs to newly hired and experienced professionals. The panel presentation will be followed by lunch and small round table discussions, so the students will have ample time to ask questions. We hope to give students a glimpse of the wide variety of chemistry careers, including what the various careers are like on a day to day basis and what education and training decisions allow students that like chemistry and science to enter these careers.

I am writing this letter in my role as director of a summer undergraduate internship program in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Medicine. The program, SUPERS@PENN, is designed for highly motivated undergraduates who are considering careers in academic medicine and specifically in biomedical research. This program is funded through an R25 award from the NCI and NIH. The aim of the program is to introduce bright and highly motivated students to diverse fields that study the effects of radiation in the treatment of cancer and in other biological systems. A second goal of the program, which is every bit as important, is to achieve diversity in the classes we recruit (with regard to race, ethnicity, sex and geography).
The program is designed to run for two consecutive summers, therefore we give preference to rising juniors in our first year class, who then have the option of returning as rising seniors for a second summer of training in our laboratories. More information about SUPERS@PENN can be viewed on our website www.med.upenn.edu/supers. Recently we completed the first summer of the program. 10 students from 9 different institutions scattered about the country participated. To underscore the types of individuals we are looking for: These 10 students came from biology, chemistry, biochemistry and bioengineering backgrounds. The mean GPA of this highly competitive group was 3.77 (with a high of 4.0 and a low of 3.42). More importantly their individual statements and letters of recommendation indicated their particular interest in pursuing a research career trajectory.
We would love to include Villanova in future mailings pertaining to the 2011 SUPERS@PENN program (the first of these will be sent out sometime in September). Please feel free to forward this e-mail the appropriate individual or individuals who are best suited to direct the appropriate students into the SUPERS@PENN program. Or you can send me their names directly to me, at this e-mail address.Thank You, best and warmest regards,
Stephen W. Tuttle, Ph.D., Program Director | SUPERS@PENN | email@example.com | 198 John Morgan, 3620 Hamilton Walk, Philadelphia, PA 19104 | office phone 215-898-0064

The deadline for submission of papers for the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Student Research Conference is coming up in one month: February 25. I’d like to request that you encourage students who might have written appropriate papers to submit for this conference. This is an opportunity for both undergraduate and graduate students to present their work in an appreciative and collegial setting; to participate in an intellectual exchange with other students and with faculty; and to compete for a cash prize. Papers from 2009 or this term, or written specifically for the competition are invited. In addition to essays, we also encourage submission of alternative forms of scholarship, including but not limited to original scripts, poetry or films with a particular feminist theoretical or critical foundation. If the feminist analysis is not overt in the creative work itself, the work should be accompanied by an essay that frames and explains the theory's application.
Please encourage your students to take part in this conference showcasing feminist concepts, theories, methods, and practices as either presenters or attendees. It's a terrific way for us to model what we do and to show the dynamism of Gender & Women's studies on campus. You might also consider giving your students an extra-credit option for attending either a student session on the day of the conference, April 8, or Lori Ginzberg’s keynote address on Elizabeth Cady Stanton: “‘A very radical proposition’: Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the Meanings of the Vote.” Every year, students who otherwise would not have participated exclaim at how glad they are that they did.
The call for papers and additional information can be found at: http://www.villanova.edu/artsci/gws/ecs_conference/ or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Students will have the opportunity to work closely with one of 25 faculty who are dedicated to the success of their students. Our research facilities include some of the most advanced instrumentation in the country. From our newly created NSF Center for Molecular Spintronics, to our W.M. Keck FT-ICR Mass Spectrometry Laboratory, to research programs in catalysis, protein engineering, drug discovery, and neurochemistry, we believe our department offers research in your area of interest. Additional highlights of our program include a generous $4,500 stipend for the 10-week program, full support for housing on campus and a partial meal allowance will be provided, on-site laboratory visits to gain exposure to industrial and governmental research careers, opportunities to interact with students in other REU programs at NCSU, and participation in a University-wide undergraduate research symposium at the summation of the program.
Additionally, the Research Triangle area, which includes Raleigh and NC State, is a wonderful place to live and visit, providing not just a high quality of life, but many important academic and industrial contacts for future employment. The Raleigh-Cary area is consistently ranked among the best places to live in America according to CNN Money.
We would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to apply to our program. Although March 16 is the deadline for applications, it is highly recommended that you submit an application as soon as possible. Offers will be extended throughout the application process and all positions could be filled prior to the application deadline. Review of applications will begin as early as February of 2009.
