2017-18 WA AWRA Fellowship

It is again time to encourage your graduate students working in a water resources related field to apply for the Washington State Section of the American Water Resources Association’s annual graduate fellowship.

Details regarding the requirements for and benefits from the fellowship are outlined in the attached application.

There is one big change this year. In past years the deadline for submitting the application has been mid-November. However, during the last two years this date has proved problematic for both the review committee and students. Consequently, after consulting with student chapter representatives and our own membership, it was decided that a mid February deadline would work better for all parties. You will note that the deadline for this round of applications will be Friday, February 16, 2018.

Apply here: AWRA_FELLOWSHIP App 17-18 v1

Data Annotation Position

We are a research team in UW CSE and UW Medicine working on a smartphone application for diagnosing concussions (link). Our algorithm involves machine-learning on images of a person’s eyes, so we need to have lots of images annotated with high precision. This entails using a program we have written to step through a video and select points to trace out the border of a person’s pupils.
Ideally, we are looking for someone to label our entire dataset, which we estimate would take ~25 hours. We would offer someone $400 to label the dataset with an extra $100 bonus if it is finished within two weeks after we meet, provided that it meets certain quality measures we have in place. We are also willing to entertain offers to label smaller chunks of the larger dataset at an equivalent hourly rate and bonus structure.
If you are interested or have more questions, please send an email to Alex Mariakakis (atm15@cs.washington.edu) and cc Lynn McGrath (lbmcgrath@gmail.com). Thanks!

Making Government Work for All workshop

 

Are you interested in advocating for evidence-based policy, but unsure how to begin?

Join us at the Seattle Central Library for Making Government Work for All: a workshop on public comment for science, labor and environmental advocacy.

WHEN: 6-8:30 PM Thursday, October 26

Two UW graduate student-led groups, the UAW Local 4121 Climate Justice Working Group and The Public Comment Project, are working with the Union of Concerned Scientists to bring you an evening of free draft beer, pizza, and public comment.

Public comment is an underutilized way for the scientific community to integrate research directly into public policy, especially for early-career scientists and interdisciplinary researchers. We’ll go over how it works, what effective comments look like, and guide you through your own public comment on one of three current comment opportunities.

For more information and to register for the workshop, visit our EventBrite page.

** All Seattle Central Library facilities are ADA accessible. Please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding accessibility.

TODAY Boeing Lecture by Prof. Natalia Komarova (UC Irvine)

===============================================================
BOEING LECTURE SERIES
https://amath.washington.edu/boeing-distinguished-colloquia
===============================================================

TIME        : Today (October 19, 2017), 4 pm – 5 pm.

VENUE       : Smith Hall 205, University of Washington

SPEAKER     : Prof. Natalia Komarova (UC Irvine)

TITLE       : Stochastic calculus of stem cells

ABSTRACT    : Stem cells are an important component of tissue
architecture. Identifying the exact regulatory
circuits that can stably maintain tissue homeostasis
(that is, approximately constant size) is critical
for our basic understanding of multicellular
organisms. It is equally critical for figuring
out how tumors circumvent this regulation, thus
providing targets for treatment. Despite great
strides in the understanding of the molecular
components of stem-cell regulation, the overall
mechanisms orchestrating tissue homeostasis are
still far from being understood. Typically, tissue
contains the stem cells, transit amplifying cells,
and terminally differentiated cells. Each of these
cell types can potentially secrete regulatory
factors and/or respond to factors secreted by other
types. The feedback can be positive or negative in
nature. This gives rise to a bewildering array of
possible mechanisms that drive tissue regulation.
In this talk I describe a novel stochastic method
of studying stem cell lineage regulation, which is
based on population dynamics and ecological
approaches. The method allows to identify possible
numbers, types, and directions of control loops that
are compatible with stability, keep the variance
low, and possess a certain degree of robustness.
I will also discuss evolutionary optimization and
cancer-delaying role of stem cells.

NOTES:

1. You are welcome to join the reception in the Lewis Hall
after the seminar.

2. There are a few time slots to meet with Prof. Komarova
individually. Please sign up at

·       Application deadline:  Sunday, November 5, 2017

We are currently look for two (2) students to work on the following research projects:


Project # 1: Evaluation of weather communication approaches as part of a heat alert system for agricultural supervisors.

We have an opening for an undergraduate student to assist on a research project focused on the prevention of adverse heat related illness in agricultural workers.

This project will test the relative benefits of different weather forecast formats, comparing decisions made with and without uncertainty and other parameters.  The student will work in collaboration with the research team, PI, and collaborators in UW Psychology to: help design a study, enroll participants in computerized experiments, analyze data, and – with collaborators at Washington State University’s AgWeatherNet weather station program – assist in incorporating the findings from this work into a heat alert system for agricultural supervisors.

Note: Experiments and analysis would likely occur during academic year ’17-18, and activities that translate findings into the practice would likely occur during ’18-19.

Desired qualifications: Undergraduate at junior level with completed coursework, and/or interest in psychology, meteorology, and/or public health.  Planned or completed introductory coursework in bio/statistics. Experience using Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word and conducting literature searches.

Project # 2: Measuring chemical markers in air and dust to improve understanding of people’s exposure to diesel exhaust.

We have an opening for an undergraduate student to assist with research projects intended to improve our understanding of people’s exposure to diesel exhaust.  We will be measuring chemical markers of diesel exhaust in air and dust samples and by biomonitoring individuals within communities that have varying levels of traffic-related air pollution. The student would work in our lab under supervision of a research scientist to help develop and/or improve our analytical methods and analyze samples collected by collaborators in California.  The overall goals of the project are: 1) to compare exposures in communities that are heavily impacted with lesser impacted communities, 2) compare levels in child-parent pairs to understand exposure patterns across age groups, 3) examine the robustness of measuring air/dust samples compared with biomonitoring, and 4) evaluate the effectiveness of California’s diesel regulations.

Desired qualifications: Undergraduate at junior level with completed course work in chemistry.  Interest in public health research.

REI Event

Bhutan – The Trek to Sustainability, Democracy & Happiness

6:30 PM  –  8:00 PM
For anyone interested in ecotourism, The Kingdom of Bhutan is a must visit destination and REI Adventures offers outstanding treks there. Situated in the Himalaya, with stunning cliffside monasteries, majestic peaks, unique wildlife, steep rivers, and fascinating cultural sites and traditions, there are few places on earth to rival the captivating beauty of Bhutan. But there is much more to the story than ecotourism alone. Bhutan has undergone a remarkable and inspiring transition to democracy and has led the world with the concept of Gross National Happiness. This presentation, by the non-profit Bhutan Foundation, will further inform guests about Bhutan’s culture, transition to democracy, commitment to sustainability and the many challenges and opportunities as a tiny kingdom sandwiched between two giants transitions into the 21st century while preserving its environment and culture. Join us for this presentation.
