Job Opportunities with the Academic Success Center

Supplemental Instruction 

The Supplemental Instruction program is currently hiring SI Leaders for next year! Supplemental Instruction Leaders use collaborative learning techniques and learning theory to lead effective group study tables for traditionally challenging courses at OSU. If you have ever wanted to gain experience in education, teaching, group facilitation, or if you just want to continue your professional development, this is a great opportunity! No experience needed, as the ASC will train prior to leading tables. The application deadline is 4/19, and you can learn more or apply here.  

Writing Center 

Writing Consultants provide support through writing and research consultations in person (when possible next year), remotely (using Zoom), and through written feedback provided via email. The ASC provides substantial training and mentoring for these positions and encourages applications from anyone who is interested in helping other students and excited about working on a collaborative and supportive team of peer writing consultants. Check out the ASC’S website to learn more about this position and how to apply, and consider attending one of the information sessions listed on that page. The deadline to apply is May 9, 2021.  

Poster Presenters for Microbiology Symposium

On April 17th, President Libby Brennan, Vice President Jacob Pederson, and the Microbiology Student Association will be hosting the Annual Spring Microbiology Symposium which will include several short talks from researchers at OSU amongst other institutions. After these talks, they will be hosting a poster session where both graduate students and undergraduate students are encouraged to share progress on any research they have been conducting at OSU. If you or someone you know might be interested in sharing their research (microbiology-related or not), the poster session will be held from 1:30 pm to around 3 pm on April 17th. The poster session will be held in a virtual environment on gather.town due to physical distancing measures currently in place. The short talks and poster sessions are free to attend and present at for all! If you have any questions about the talks or the poster session, please do not hesitate to reach out to Libby Brennan or Jacob Pederson.

OSU Legislative Scholars Program

Previously called the “Presidential Student Legislative Advocates,” the University Legislative Scholars is a year-long experiential learning program that enables students to engage in current public policy issues at the state level while also increasing student advocacy in the Oregon legislative process. Students can enroll in a non-credit/tuition-free option or, working with their College, may be able to take the course for two credits per term that apply to their majors. Each student is responsible for devising and implementing an Individual Development Plan (IDP) that engages them with a particular state legislator of their choosing, a bill or policy under consideration, and an advocate who is involved in the legislative process. Enrollment in the course is aimed at third- and fourth-year students and requires a short application, a current resume, and a faculty reference. All majors are encouraged to apply; the deadline is April 30. There will be an information session on Tuesday, April 13 at 5:00 pm that you can register for here. In addition, you can get more information at the University Legislative Scholars Website, their FAQ’s, and the steps to apply. Contact the director Jock Mills with any questions.

Non-profit Post-grad Job Opportunity: College Possible and Americorps

Hey Beavs, are you starting to think about your post-grad plans? College Possible, a Portland-based non-profit, will be at the Oregon Spring Career Fair Thursday, April 15. College Possible is a college access and success nonprofit dedicated to educational equity, and working toward closing the degree divide between students from low-income backgrounds and their peers from higher-income backgrounds. They currently have 30+ AmeriCorps roles starting in August for upcoming and recent college graduates and are seeking candidates, of all majors and interests, who are passionate about supporting students on their journey to and through college as near-peer mentors. All levels of experience are welcome, as they utilize your expertise and knowledge having recently gone through the college application process and completing your own four-year college degree! They will provide comprehensive training on the rest. For the Career Fair, current OSU students + Alumni are welcome to sign up for 1×1 conversations with current AmeriCorps members through Handshake. During this information session, they’ll be sharing about the AmeriCorps opportunities available for college graduates starting in August, as well as sharing more about College Possible and what they do.
