Doctoral students: Apply for the ASU Science and Technology Center Entrepreneurial Fellowship Program by August 26

Posted by on Aug 2, 2022 in Graduate Students, Opportunities, Research |

A student works with lab equipment.

Arizona State University is launching five Science and Technology Centers as part of the state’s New Economy Initiative. NEI is an investment in ASU’s assignment to drive Arizona’s future economic growth and resiliency through engineering and technology innovation and training.

The STCs represent a strategic collaborative effort by Arizona universities, state government and industry to accelerate talent and skills development in key areas that are driving industrial growth and strengthening the state’s economic development. As part of this effort, the STC Entrepreneurial Fellowships are designed to enable postdoctoral scholars to grow ventures that are commercializing ASU deep technology emerging from programs supported by the NEI.

To be eligible to apply, you must have completed your doctoral degree in engineering or a related field or will be completing it prior to the start of the Fellowship. This allows for soon-to-be graduating doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers, research faculty or staff researchers to apply for this opportunity. This program is not aimed at tenured and tenure-track faculty, as Fellows will, in general, proceed to be full-time employees and officers of their companies after the fellowship.

Graduate students: Sign up for K-12 STEM outreach course BIO 533/494 this fall

Posted by on Jul 28, 2022 in Graduate Students, Opportunities, Outreach |

Founded and run by graduate students in Arizona State University’s School of Life Sciences, Graduate Partners in Science Education’s, or GPSE’s, mission is to train graduate students to become better scientists, more experienced educators and superior science communicators through the design of science, technology, engineering and math lesson plans and projects. At the completion of this course, students will:

  • Create a science lesson aligned with their personal scientific interests and state educational standards.
  • Modify existing science lessons for remote instruction.
  • Communicate effective feedback to peers about their science lessons.
  • Communicate science to audiences of specific ages and skill levels.

A particular emphasis of this course is on learning teaching practices that support classroom inclusion. Should students be interested in further involvement with GPSE, the spring semester involves weekly outreach to local middle schools to present the designed lessons at after-school science groups.
