Participate in the JEE Mentored Reviewer Program — apply by August 20

Posted by on Aug 18, 2021 in Graduate Students, Opportunities |

The Journal of Engineering Education (JEE) is committed to cultivate, disseminate, and archive scholarly research in engineering education.  To expand their reviewer base and maintain the quality of manuscript reviews, JEE launched a Mentored Reviewer Program in 2019. This program is intended to coach new or novice reviewers through the review process with a mentor who has substantial experience in reviewing and writing engineering education research studies.

JEE is inviting applications for mentees to the JEE Mentored Reviewer Program. Mentees for the program should be novices in engineering education research such as graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, and engineering faculty.  Mentees should display evidence of developing expertise (through formal courses or real-world experiences) in research areas that align with the journal’s mission. Mentees should have developing expertise in either quantitative or qualitative research methods. Individuals from countries other than the United States are welcome and encouraged to apply.

The Mentored Reviewer Program is a competitive program for both mentors and mentees. All mentors and mentees will be acknowledged at the ASEE annual meeting and will receive a certificate recognizing their accomplishments through their participation in the program during the previous year. Mentees will be asked to participate in an online training with their mentors and JEE editors that will include an introduction to JEE and an overview of expectations for reviews. During the mentorship period (approximately three to six months), mentors and mentees will work together on approximately three article reviews. A scaffolded approach to the review process allows each mentee to gain more independence by their final review. To the extent possible, mentors and mentees will be matched based on expertise.

Mentees should apply by Friday, August 20, 2021.

For more information on the program, please contact Lisa Benson at lbenson@clemson.edu, or visit the program website, which also includes resources for reviewers.

Amazon Web Services has multiple opportunities for their Cloud Computing Conference

Posted by on Aug 16, 2021 in Opportunities |

The Amazon Web Services has multiple opportunities for their Cloud Computing Conference!

Attend re:Invent 2021, the AWS annual cloud computing conference in Las Vegas, taking place November 29–December 3, 2021! With hundreds of mainstage sessions, and over 1,500 breakout sessions, you can get educated on technical best practices, gain valuable hands-on experience at technical bootcamps, self-paced labs, two-hour workshops, and hackathons, and build your network across the cloud community.

At AWS, we believe that technology should be built in a way that’s inclusive, diverse, and equitable. And we have a responsibility to make that happen. We have a long way to go, but we’re committed to putting in the work for more equal representation. Because it’s only when barriers are broken, doors are opened, and more seats are pulled up to the table, that we can truly build for everyone. Come build with us at re:Invent!

One way we support a future of tech that is diverse, inclusive, and accessible is through our All Builders Welcome Grant, which is geared toward underrepresented technologists in the first five years of their careers.

The All Builders Welcome Grant includes your re:Invent 2021 registration, airfare to Las Vegas, Nevada, and hotel accommodations during re:Invent. Participants will have access to four days of re:Invent content and activities as well as a welcome orientation, reserved seating in the keynotes, All Builders Welcome meetups, closing remarks with AWS leadership, and much more!

Volunteer mentors needed for middle school outreach.

Have extra time and want to give back to the community while making new friends on campus? Make a huge positive impact on some awesome middle school kids. The mentoring program at Gililland Middle School is going on its sixth year. Many kids in this Title I middle school face a lot of challenges and they just need someone to show they matter and have a bright future. You can be hands on and have a rewarding experience. You don’t need any prior experience, you change their lives by being there and just being you. 

Some words from past ASU mentors

  • My experience as a mentor was one of the most rewarding experiences of my college career.
  • It served as a great way to have fun and destress from school. I was able to learn things along the way as well, such as goal-setting, patience, etc. 
  • At the beginning, I felt as though I may not be making much of an impact or helping the kids, but I’ve learned along the way that the presence may be helpful in some way.

Last year this program was strictly online due to the pandemic. We are providing both in-person and online options to join for your comfort and the students. 

The weekly mentor program will be every Tuesday from 3:30–4:30 p.m. Arizona time beginning Tuesday, August 24, 2021. You do not need to be in Arizona to be a part of it, you just have to adjust the time zone accordingly if you are joining online. If you are joining in person you will need to be wearing a face mask.

Amazon is hiring a programmatic solutions specialist for their location in Los Angeles, California!

In this role, you will independently resolve customer campaign execution issues and blockers by providing knowledgeable and responsive technical support to Amazon’s enterprise customers: programmatic trading desks. You will have ownership for issue investigation in identifying campaign configuration and software defects, reproducing in-depth and complex cases across Amazon’s DSP product and processes, and researching solutions to unblock customers. This is a complex environment, as you will own the most critical part of the customer experience and deliver on Amazon’s customers’ most basic need. While Amazon obsesses over incident response, in this role you will also develop tools to scale Amazon’s service quality, and provide critical input for product prioritization to address root causes of why the customer experienced an incident in the first place. Amazon’s advertising customers are likely Amazon customers, and the company takes maintaining its high customer service bar seriously.
