This is a last minute request for field help. We can reimburse gas, but there is not money for a stipend. The field techs will be collecting vegetation data to be tied to woodpecker habitat as well as different management regimes (prescribed fire, timber harvest, etc).
Thanks to all,
Know someone passionate about becoming an urban teacher ?
Richmond Teacher Residency (RTR) is an innovative partnership between Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and Richmond Public Schools (RPS). Coordinated by the Center for Teacher Leadership (CTL), RTR recruits, trains, and supports teachers—preparing them to meet the distinct challenges of urban school systems. Residents learn side-by-side with top RPS teachers for an entire year while earning a master’s degree from VCU. RTR’s support doesn’t end at graduation either: our graduates receive one-on-one training from a content-specific coach throughout the first two years of their teaching career. In addition to this strong preparation and support, teaching residents receive:
- $24K stipend during the residency year; additional $4K for science and math candidates
- special reduced tuition rate
- 100% placement record post-residency with full benefits and salary as a full-time RPS teacher
- support for National Board Certification after teaching for 3 years
Application deadline: March 15, 2016

With a new year comes new opportunities, and, we are excited to share that PATH and the Siemens Foundation are partnering to offer six new Seattle-based fellowship opportunities in the global health diagnostics space. We could really use your help to attract or identify talented undergraduate and graduate science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) students.
What is the ask from you?!
Will you please consider forwarding the below information and/or attached flier to STEM students, professors, university career counselors, etc.? Please also consider adding an update to your Linked-In status through a quick copy/paste of the blurb towards the bottom of this page (instructions included).

About PATH/SIEMENS STEM Fellowship Opportunities, Summer 2016
PATH, a leading global health organization, in partnership with the Siemens Foundation, which advances workforce development and education initiatives in STEM, is launching the new, competitive Siemens Foundation Innovation Fellowship Program. This program is comprised of a cohort of six undergraduate and graduate science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) students, who will join PATH’s staff in their Seattle, WA facilities for a three-month term, starting in June 2016. This program offers hands-on experiences in diagnostics and global health innovation. The fellowships vary from hands-on laboratory research at PATH’s facilities to using various sources for literature research, review and writing. At the conclusion of the assignment, the cohort will visit the Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics Inc. facility in New York to present and showcase their projects.
These are great opportunities for STEM students to explore careers in global health and gain some valuable, real-life experience, while serving society by accelerating high-impact, low-cost solutions to some of the world’s most pressing health needs. The program also offers a generous housing and living stipend to encourage participation from students whose economic situations may not otherwise offer the opportunity to accept unpaid or lower-paying fellowship or internship programs.
If you know someone with connections to talented STEM students, please help spread the word about the Siemens Foundation Innovation Fellowship Program, and if interested please apply at http://tinyurl.com/hhrx2bb.
I know we’re all very busy, so thanks so much for considering this request!!
