FDA Postdoctoral Fellowship in Glycobiology - Deadline October 26th

Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research | Silver Spring, MD | MONTHLY STIPEND PROVIDED

This research opportunity will be within the Laboratory of Bacterial Polysaccharides with the goal of using recombinant technologies, metabolic engineering and/ synthetic biology as tools to improve the understanding of glycoconjugate vaccine synthesis and immunology. The selected participant will receive mentoring on fulfilling the project, which will also include collaboration with investigators within and external to the FDA. The participant will be studying Glycoengineered Outer Membrane Vesicles (geOMV) as an alternative platform to generate glycoconjugate vaccines that target encapsulated pathogens. The participant will generate a prototype expression system to reconstitute bacterial polysaccharides (e.g. capsule, O-antigen) in Escherichia coli, and test and evaluate the immune response of the purified geOMV.

Science Corps - Deadline October 31st

Dear Chemistry Graduate Students,

My name is Chloe Cho and I am the Outreach Developer for Science Corps. Science Corps provides recent STEM PhDs with the opportunity to leverage their training to improve science education in the developing world. We are currently seeking applicants for our fellowships and would be interested in receiving applications from your department for the application cycle ending February 29th. Science Corps has three calls a year for applicants – with February 29th, June 30th, and October 31st deadlines.

Fellows travel to partner institutions to develop science curriculum, teach in secondary school classrooms, train teachers, and build community-based research projects. In addition to building science capacity at these host locations, we aim to offer fellows a life-changing experience. They are given the opportunity to spend time in beautiful locations, immerse themselves in different cultures, and learn from their host educators, all while making positive contributions to these communities.

We are hoping that you could help us pass on the following message regarding the fellowship through your department listserv, job bulletin, or any other appropriate means. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have questions about the program or if you are aware of any other departments or venues that would help us reach interested applicants.

Thank you in advance for your time, and I look forward to hearing back from you soon.

Are you a recent or soon-to-be PhD graduate? Would you like to spend up to six months making a difference by developing and teaching science curriculum abroad?

Science Corps (science-corps.org) offers fully paid internships to upcoming and recent PhD graduates (up to four years after graduation) to help build science capacity at one of our two host locations – a town on the beautiful island of Bohol in the Philippines and an idyllic village in the Indian Himalayas.

We are presently recruiting for both of our sites for fellowships starting within the next year. The deadline for this application round is February 29th, but we still encourage you to contact us if you would like to be considered for a later appointment.

The Department of Energy’s Office of Science Graduate Student Research program - Deadline November 12th

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science is pleased to announce that the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications for the 2020 Solicitation 2.  Applications are due 5:00pm Eastern Time on Thursday, November 12, 2020.

We would like to bring to your attention 4 new transdisciplinary research areas for encouraging graduate training activities at the convergence of multiple disciplines and communities, including Microelectronics, Data Science, Conservation Laws and Symmetries, and Accelerator Science. We strongly encourage applications in these areas.  Detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system, can be found at: https://science.osti.gov/wdts/scgsr/.

The SCGSR program supports supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE national laboratory/facility in collaboration with a DOE laboratory scientist for a period of 3 to 12 consecutive months—with the goal of preparing graduate students for scientific and technical careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission.

The SCGSR program is open to current Ph.D. students in qualified graduate programs at accredited U.S. academic institutions, who are conducting their graduate thesis research in targeted areas of importance to the DOE Office of Science. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis/dissertation while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the host DOE laboratories/facilities. The supplemental award provides for additional, incremental costs for living and travel expenses directly associated with conducting the SCGSR research project at the DOE host laboratory/facility during the award period.

The Office of Science expects to make approximately 95 awards in 2020 Solicitation 2 cycle, for project periods beginning anytime between June 14, 2021 and October 4, 2021.

Since its inception in 2014, the SCGSR program has provided support to over 580 graduate awardees from 141 different U.S. universities to conduct thesis research at 18 DOE national laboratories/facilities across the nation.

The SCGSR program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science’s Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS), in collaboration with the six Office of Science research programs offices and the DOE national laboratories/facilities, and program administration support is provided by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE).

For any questions, please contact the SCGSR Program Manager, Dr. Ping Ge, at sc.scgsr@science.doe.gov.
