Are you currently a junior, senior, graduate or professional student or a recent bachelor’s, master’s or JD graduate looking for a fully-funded abroad experience during the 2015-16 academic year? Consider the Fulbright U.S. Student Program (http://us.fulbrightonline.org/home.html). This program is designed to give students, artists, and other professionals opportunities to pursue research, graduate study or English teaching experience in over 155 nations worldwide.

The application cycle for the 2015-2016 Fulbright U.S. Student competition will open on May 1, 2014. The campus deadline for applications is September 10, 2014.

* It allows for individually designed study/research or an English Teaching Assistantship. You can propose a project and/or study plan that will take place during one academic year in a country outside the U.S.
* It provides support for study/research/teaching in a single country. (Limited opportunities exist for traveling to more than one country.) You can meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences.
* It facilitates cultural exchange. Through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in daily tasks, you can gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think.
* It promotes mutual understanding. Through engagement in the community, you can interact with your hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom.

Summer-only research field technicians:

3 to 4 people are needed to deploy digital cameras and measurement poles in remote regions of Olympic National Park. (2 people will be needed both for instrument preparation and for fieldwork, with a 2-month minimum commitment. 1-2 people will be needed only for 3 field trips of approximately 7 days each.) The cameras will be taking photographs of snow accumulating on the poles throughout the winter to quantify spatial patterns of snow in these mountains for the OLYMPEX field campaign (http://www.atmos.washington.edu/~brodzik/html/olympex/).

Applicants must have an interest in snow and mountains and an ability to hike long distances over uneven terrain while carrying heavy and potentially odd-shaped objects (e.g., sections of PVC pipe and solar panels).

Applicants must be available for training in late June, and in August and early September for deployments. (Note:Fieldwork will not conflict with regular UW classes.)

The following skill/experiences are desired (though applicants with most but not all of these will be considered): 1) ability to fix things relying only on supplies you carry (e.g., experience with circuits, fixing cars, construction, home repair), 2) ability to work well with others in potentially harsh weather conditions, 3) good communication skills, 4) good organizational skills (e.g., experience with organizing/leading outdoor trips and/or with teaching/instruction/management), 5) ability to think quickly on one’s feet and innovate (e.g., solve problems not seen before).

Long-term undergraduate research aide:

1 to 2 people are needed to work up to full time in the summer and part time through the academic year to 1) maintain instrumentation at Snoqualmie Pass (see http://depts.washington.edu/mtnhydr/research/intermitsnow.shtml), 2) maintain web presentation and archiving of data collected (see http://depts.washington.edu/mtnhydr/cgi/plot.cgi) , 3) process field
data from various data sites across the western United States, 4) procure field equipment as needed, 5) copy and scan material as needed, 6) attend group meetings and 7) provide progress reports and
updates to supervisor on a weekly basis. Past students in this position have won Mary Gates Undergraduate Research scholarships, and many have gone on to graduate school. Computer experience is required, with knowledge of Microsoft Word and Excel and Matlab (or other similar programming language) highly desirable. Experience with GIS, circuits, and web(html)-programming also desired.Must be hard-working, organized and reliable.

Potential combined position:

Students interested in both Olympic National Park fieldwork and longer term snow research are particularly desirable. Please specify if you would like to be considered for a long-term position participating in all of these activities.

To Apply:

If you are interested in any of these positions, please fill out the web survey at: https://catalyst.uw.edu/webq/survey/jdlund/233885

before 5 pm on May 1st. We will be contacting highly-ranked individuals for interviews in May. Specific questions may be directed to Jessica Lundquist at jdlund@uw.edu.

D.C. Internships Info Sessions (April 24-25)

Are you interested in doing an internship in Washington, D.C. and earning UW credit?

If yes, come to one of the six information sessions for The Washington Center that are scheduled this week on Thursday and Friday:

Thursday, April 24
930-1020 in DEN 306
1230- 120 in EEB 003
330- 420 in SAV 156

Friday, April 25
1030-1120 in CMU 243
1130-1220 in EEB 031
1230- 120 in BAG 106

The Washington Center (TWC) runs a full-time internship program in Washington, D.C., that is open to all UW students (all majors welcome) and provides comprehensive service, including internship placement and housing. Placements include government agencies, corporations, nonprofits, museums and international organizations, and associations,. Hundreds of UW students have participated in this program since UW’s affiliation in 1977, and many made connections that led to post-degree employment.

At the informational meetings, a Washington Center representative and I will discuss the structure of the program, scholarships and the application process.

For 2014 the quarterly program cost is $5,995 and the housing cost is $4,200 (there are additional charges for the semester program). In addition, students pay for 15 UW credits, transportation, and personal expenses. Students are eligible to use their financial aid for this program and many scholarships are available that often bring the cost of attending close to the cost of a quarter at UW. For Autumn 2014, TWC guarantees scholarships to all UW students, at least $2500 for residents of WA State and at least $1000 for non-residents (total cost is usually less than a quarter at UW for non-residents).

TWC’s facilities are accessible to students who have disabilities. In addition, their Disability Services Coordinator will assist with accommodation at the internship and programming sites.

These are the upcoming application deadlines (for a full list of organizations that have earlier deadlines see http://www.twc.edu/node/11029):
Autumn Quarter (Aug-Nov)/Semester 2014 (Aug-Dec)
*Priority: 5/7/13, Regular: 6/14/13
Spring Semester 2014 (Jan-May)
*Priority: 10/15/14, Regular: 11/19/14
Summer Quarter 2015 (Jun-Aug),
*Priority: 2/18/15, Regular 3/18/15
* Deadline for most scholarships

Regardless of your major, there is an internship in D.C. for you! Whether you want to do an internship this year or in three years, come to an information session to learn more. If you can’t make it, you can make an appointment to meet with me individually (to use our online system go to https://depts.washington.edu/polsadvc/signup.php; if none of the appointments with me work with your schedule, email me to find another time). Information is also available at TWC’s website, http://www.twc.edu
