|InclusiveExcellence@OSU welcomes STEM faculty from Oregon State University, OSU-Cascades, Linn-Benton Community College and Lane Community College to apply for the IE@OSU Fellowship. Applications will be open until May 2, 2022.
The Inclusive Excellence fellowship program is for STEM educators who are interested in creating change in their teaching practice and within their professional environments. If you:
Are curious about how you can incorporate inclusion and equity into your work, but don’t know where to startAre already thinking hard about inclusion and equity and need (or want) some structure to bring thoughts to actionsBelieve in the importance of inclusion and equity but are unsure how it is relevant to your work as a STEM educator and want to learn in a judgement-free environment.
Then this program is for you!

Research focused on facilitating fundamental, collaborative, cross-cutting mathematics research on grand-challenge problems
Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $40 million for fundamental mathematics research on problems of interest to the DOE that require the integration of multiple mathematical topic areas. The Mathematical Multifaceted Integrated Capability Centers (MMICCs) supported by this funding opportunity will enable five-year, multi-institutional collaborations for cross-cutting mathematics.
“MMICCs enable applied mathematics researchers, working in large, collaborative teams, to take a broader view of a problem,” said Barbara Helland, DOE Associate Director of Science for Advanced Scientific Computing Research. “As a result of this holistic view, the researchers devise solutions by building fundamental, multidisciplinary mathematical capabilities considering existing and emerging computing capabilities.”
This is the third time the MMICCs program has been competed. The previous round of projects included a focus on the mathematics of rare events as applied to the power grid; the integration of physical governing equations and neural networks to increase the efficiency and accuracy of scientific machine learning; and methods for making optimization and inversion under uncertainty tractable for additive manufacturing and advanced materials. Proposed projects may address any application within the DOE mission space but must focus on the challenge of integrating multiple mathematical techniques to obtain solutions.
Collaborative applications are open to universities and colleges, non-profit organizations, for-profit organizations, DOE national laboratories, and other federal agencies. Applicants are encouraged to implement DOE diversity, equity, and inclusion guidelines. The total planned funding is up to $40 million, with $8 million in Fiscal Year 2022 dollars and the outyear funding contingent upon congressional appropriations.
|Dear Sir or Madam: We ask your assistance in forwarding this message to graduate students in your department to inform them of an outstanding fellowship opportunity with the Army Research Laboratory (ARL).
The Army Research Laboratory (ARL) invites exceptional young researchers to apply for an ARL Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship (www.nas.edu/arl). This fellowship provides recipients the opportunity to pursue independent research while working alongside some of the nation’s best scientists and engineers. Applicants must display extraordinary ability in scientific research and show clear promise of becoming outstanding leaders. Successful candidates will have already tackled a major scientific or engineering problem or will have provided a new approach or insight, evidenced by a recognized impact in their field.
Eligibility criteria: By October 1, 2022, applicants must have completed all the requirements for a Ph.D. or Sc.D. degree in the physical sciences, life sciences, computational sciences, behavioral sciences, or engineering. Applicants who intend to defend their dissertation after October 1, 2022, are not eligible.As of the application deadline (June 15, 2022 at 5PM ET), applicants may not be more than five years beyond the award date of their Ph.D. or Sc.D.There are no citizenship requirements; however, selected fellows must pass a Department of Defense clearance process, requiring a background security investigation. Foreign nationals must get further DoD approval, requiring a background investigation. Applicants must demonstrate exceptional qualifications with respect to academic and scholarly achievement, as evidenced by research and publication.Candidates are expected to have conducted research on a major scientific or engineering problem during their thesis work or have provided a new approach or insight, evidenced by a recognized impact in their field.
Fellowship benefits: Full-time, one-year in-residence appointment at ARL, renewable for up to three years based on performanceAnnual stipend of $115,000Health insurance (including dental and vision)Paid relocation and professional travel allowanceInterested candidates can find additional information and apply at: http://www.nas.edu/arl. Sincerely yours, Elizabeth M. Prescott, D.Phil.Director, Fellowships Office
Nominations are open now through May 31. This award recognizes work performance and service which goes above and beyond the standard expectations held for professional faculty and classified staff. One classified and one professional faculty employee will be honored at the University Day ceremonies with the presentation of a plaque and cash award of $500 each. Please click here to learn about the nomination process and criteria.
Ashbrook has two 2.5 L bottles of concentrated nitric acid. Both bottles look unopened. I don’t think a middle school should have this volume of nitric acid sitting around. Do you or anyone you know at OSU have a need for nitric acid? I have an acid cabinet now but it isn’t large enough to put in a separate container to hold the two large bottles of nitric acid.

I hope all is going well! I was hoping you could pass on this link (see below) to students who may be interested in attending the Radiation Detection Summer School at PNNL. Although the website says the deadline has passed they are still taking applicants.
I attended this class during my time at OSU and I found it very useful.
