Summer Internships @ Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve

The Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve of the University of Minnesota has opportunities for students to work as plant community ecology interns, research field supervisors, ornithology technicians, and prescribed burn technicians. Many positions run from June through August, but some technicians will be needed as early as March and some are needed through October. As a research intern or technician, you will contribute to ongoing field experiments, have the opportunity to initiate individual research, attend scientific seminars, and interact with professors, post-docs, and graduate students. If you are an undergraduate or a newly graduated student with a background or interest in biology, ecology, environmental science, botany, environmental education, ornithology, or related field we encourage you to apply.

We have three large scale projects, along with several smaller scale experiments, that require most of our intern resources throughout the summer. BioCON is one of the large scale experiments where we explore the ways in which plant communities respond to environmental changes such as increased nitrogen deposition, increased atmospheric CO2, decreased biodiversity, altered precipitation patterns, and increased temperatures. Another large scale project is the Big Biodiversity experiment that studies how plant diversity affects the rates, dynamics, and stability of ecological processes at the population, community, and ecosystem levels. There are multiple experiments nested within the Big Biodiversity experiment as well, looking at factors such as irrigation and increased temperatures. The third large scale experiment, FAB, is
looking at tree competition under different diversity levels. This experiment includes approximately 40,000 trees within a 30 acre field that will run for over 100 years. Throughout the summer we maintain and sample these experiments. We also have a couple of technician positions that will involve studying woodpecker behavior, habitat use, and nesting success throughout the spring and summer
season at Cedar Creek.

The Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve itself is a nine square mile tract of land 35 miles north of the Twin Cities. Because of its fortunate location in mid-continent at the triple meeting point of three great biomes of North America, it carries much of the continent’s biological heritage. Cedar Creek is endowed with a diverse mosaic of prairie, savanna, sedge meadows, bogs, open water, forests, and even abandoned agricultural fields. Its large size, great natural diversity, and uniform soil substrate make it ideal for ecosystem studies. To learn more detailed information about experiments, researchers, and the Cedar Creek area please visit our website at www.cedarcreek.umn.edu.

To apply for any of the above intern positions please visit our website, http://z.umn.edu/ccjobs. The deadline for application submission is February 19 th or 26 th (depending on position). For any questions regarding the internships or application please email ccintern@umn.edu.

Scribe America expanding in Richmond!

Please see the correspondence below from a recruiter from Scribe America

***********************************************************************

My name is Kierra and I am a Recruiter for ScribeAmerica; a company that hires and trains Medical Scribe for Physicians. This email is to provide information about a truly unique employment opportunity for students interested in careers in medicine. Our company is currently looking to recruit students to work as part-time, full-time, day shift and night shift Scribes in Richmond, VA.  The scribe will work side by side with physicians assisting with documentation for each patient evaluated by the doctor.  It is an exceptional opportunity for any student interested in medicine to gain first-hand experience following a physician.

The role of a scribe is to closely collaborate with their assigned physician by documenting the history of each patient evaluated, the doctor’s physical examination, the results of laboratory/radiological studies ordered, and the eventual diagnosis and disposition.  Becoming a scribe provides the student with first rate exposure to medical terminology, disease processes, emergency procedures, medications, and the medical decision making process performed by the physicians.

This job is not for everyone; the complexity of the material and fast-paced environment necessitate that only the sharpest and most motivated students succeed as a scribe.  We are looking for dependable and hard working employees that have a desire for an eventual career in medicine, or are interested in learning more about careers in medicine.  There are multiple shifts, both day and night and each shift consists of following a single physician, usually lasting 8-12 hours. It is expected that each scribe can commit to 2 shifts per week for at least 2 years.

Paid classroom & clinical training is provided. The training is extensive and intense. Each employee will have multiple training sessions both in the classroom and the emergency department during which we teach the flow of the emergency room, extensive medical terminology, and appropriate medical/legal documentation.

There is a flyer found here providing more information about the positions and how to apply.  We would greatly appreciate it if you would take the time to forward this email to any of your students that are interested in careers in medicine, or any students with an interest in learning more about medicine.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity which has demonstrated itself to be excellent experience for students preparing for careers in medicine.  Our past employees that excelled as scribes have gone on to receive outstanding evaluations in their clinical years and residencies.

For more information you may also visit our website www.scribeamerica.com.  Please contact me if you have any questions about our program.

Regards,

Kierra
