Graduate Student Recruitment
We are recruiting ten (10) graduate students who have at least 2 years’ experience as a graduate student in a PhD program who have an interest in teaching and developing their science communication skills. The programs we are particularly interested in are: Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth Sciences, Ecology, Evolution, Ecosystems and Society, Engineering, Experimental and Molecular Medicine, Mathematics, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Physics and Astronomy, Psychological and Brain Sciences, and Quantitative Biomedical Sciences.
The project involves working with educators in rural schools in New Hampshire and Vermont to enhance the STEM curriculum and develop resources for students and teachers in collaboration with the Montshire Museum of Science and faculty from biological sciences (Roger Sloboda), engineering (Vicki May), and education (Michele Tine) departments, and will be supported through the Outreach Office (Amanda Skinner).
This is opportunity will come with some renumeration and will require a commitment of approximately 75 hours over the year. Applicants must be U.S citizens or permanent residents and eager to develop their STEM communication and teaching skills. This is an outstanding project that will run over five years, developing high quality STEM materials for rural schools in our area and growing this to a sustainable rural education partnership.
