Benny Buy Training

Filed under: Announcements @ 2:25 pm

ASBC Customers,

I wanted to let you know about a special Benny Buy training to be provided to ASBC staff and customers.  The training will cover primarily the requestor role, with considerable overlap with the shopper role.   The same training will be offered on two separate days, May 7 & 10.  Both trainings will be identical content, but are being offered at different times to make it easier for you to find a time that works with your schedule.

While Benny Buy is not yet required for all our purchasing, my understanding is that it will be our main mode for purchasing in the future.  This would be a great opportunity to get first time training, get extra training to help reinforce what you’ve already learned, ask questions directly to Alex Sims (trainer), bring examples to work through, and share observations/suggestions, etc.

This training would be particularly beneficial to unit administrative assistants, key contacts, and  office staff.  Unit heads and directors are also assigned the requestor role in the system, and may benefit from this training to help them handle requests themselves, or to assist them in supervising those who do.  Please also feel free to pass this invitation along to others in your units that you feel would benefit.  Examples would be individual PI’s or lab managers who have a particular interest in learning to use the new system in the requestor role.

The trainings will be 2 hours each in Kidder Hall, Room 278

May 7 from 3PM to 4:50PM

May 10 from 8AM to 9:50 AM

Hopefully, one of those times will work for you.  There is no need to RSVP, just show up.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thank you.

General Chemistry Instructor – Northwest Christian University

Filed under: Announcements @ 3:07 pm

This email is to request your assistance in identifying any OSU graduate students or faculty (adjunct or otherwise), with a master’s degree or greater in chemistry, who is available to teach our General Chemistry course as an adjunct during the Fall 2018 term (August 29th – December 14th), please see Fall 2017 syllabus attached.

As our lecture (CHEM 121) and lab (CHEM 121L) are two separate courses, that need to be taken simultaneously, there is an option for the adjunct in question to teach the lecture only, with me teaching the lab.  Teaching both or lecture only is up to the adjunct we hire.

I ask that you direct interested parties to me, for questions, and to the link at for the application process.

Thank you.

Dancing with the Faculty

Filed under: Announcements @ 2:06 pm

Prof. May Nyman and her research group will be participating.  Make sure you attend and VOTE Nyman Group!!


My name is Sydney and I am an Environmental Engineering student planning the 2018 Dancing with the faculty event. Within the last two weeks you received an email inviting you to participate in this fundraising event, and I am sending this email to inform you that the event has been rescheduled to May 3rd. If you would still like to participate, or couldn’t participate before but can now, please fill out this poll.
In case you didn’t receive the previous email, allow me to explain what Dancing with the Faculty is. Dancing with the Faculty is a collaborative fundraising event between several College of Engineering and College of Science student groups and organizations, featuring the dancing talents of students and faculty across both colleges.  The event will also include a performance from PowerChord, one of OSU’s premier a cappella groups!
The event itself is free to attend, however the attendees get to vote for their favorite dance groups by donating $0.50 per vote. All of the funds raised for this even will be donated to Relay for Life, a community based fundraising event for the American Cancer Society.
The event will now be taking place on May 3rd in the MU Horizon Room from 7-9pm!

Again, If you are interested please fill out this poll.

Please feel free to email myself at, or reply to this email if you have any questions about the event. (Or even have faculty in mind you think would be fantastic for this kind of event!)

Even if you do not want to participate in dancing activities please consider still being at the event! It will be a great time with a great group of people! Additionally, please advertise to any students you might think would be interested!

Program Solicitation has been cleared – NSF 18-555

Filed under: Announcements @ 8:43 am

The solicitation for the FY 2019 CCI competition has just been posted. This covers new Phase I proposals as well as a Phase II renewal.

There are two significant changes in this call (both impact Phase I)

  • The deadline for CCI Phase I prelims has been moved earlier – it is now in mid-August
  • The competition is open to all areas supported by CHE, with particular encouragement for ideas that align with NSF’s 10 Big Ideas

Meanwhile, the FY 2018 Phase I competition continues…we have some interesting projects that are under review. Those new awards will be public in late August/early September. We always hope they are public by the ACS Meeting.

Please share this news with your networks (and alert them to the new prelim proposal deadline!). Potential applicants have almost four months to get their prelim ready.

Applications for PCOSW scholarships and event co-sponsorships for Summer and Fall term projects are now being accepted

Filed under: Announcements @ 8:08 am

The President’s Commission on the Status of Women provides funding to faculty, students, and staff who are pursuing professional development, research, outreach, or creative projects related to women’s issues.

SRF Postbaccalaureate Fellowship Program

Filed under: Announcements @ 4:47 pm

Dear Oregon State Representative,

I am writing to let your students know about our new paid postbaccaluareate research opportunities. The SRF Postbaccalaureate Fellowship Program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct biomedical research to combat diseases of aging, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Like SRF’s Summer Scholars Program, the goal of the Postbaccalaureate Fellowship Program will be to prepare participants for a career in regenerative medicine research. Under the guidance of a scientific mentor, each Fellow will take control of his or her own research project. Research projects offered will vary from year to year. Check the SRF Postbaccalaureate Fellowship Program homepage for the precise projects available this year. Training will also include writing assignments that will improve each Fellow’s ability to generate grant proposals, abstracts, and other scientific reports.

Paid positions are available at:

  • Buck Institute for Research on Aging
  • Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine
  • SRF Research Center
  • The Scripps Research Institute

The online application and full descriptions of each research project can be found at Completed applications will be accepted until NOON PST Monday, May 21, 2018 (12 pm PST 5/21/18). A downloadable program flyer is available at the same address. Please share the flyer and/or this email with your students or other departments who you think would be interested in this research opportunity. A low resolution version that is more amenable to web posting and emailing can be provided upon request.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide in advertising our summer internship program. If you have any questions about the program or would prefer not to receive the yearly internship announcement in the future, please feel free to contact me at
