Intel CEO Reddit AMA -
Wednesday, February 19th at 12-1 pm ET / 9-10am PT
If you could ask the CEO of Intel any question, what would you ask? Get your questions ready, because here’s your chance! Brian Krzanich, CEO of Intel Corporation, will be hosting an Ask Me Anything (AMA) on reddit on Wednesday, February 19, 2014 from 9:00-10:00 a.m. PST. This is a great opportunity for you to ask the new CEO anything about his journey to becoming CEO of one of the most recognized brands in the world.
The AMA is brought to you by STAY WITH II, an online community sponsored by Intel Corporation. The STAY WITH IT community is a 30,000 strong community—and growing. The community features a wide array of videos with 140K+ views, 40 profiles of different types of engineers from various companies, and many partnerships with various college students and industry experts who share their experiences and adventures through blogs. We continuously engage with the community and deliver compelling content about what engineers really do, academic resources, tips and encouragement via Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and staywithit.org.
So join the conversation! BK really wants to talk to you—the up-and-coming engineers of tomorrow who will shape our future!
Improving Undergraduate STEM Education
The Directorate for Education and Human Resources has implemented a new program for “Improving Undergraduate STEM Education” (IUSE) through its Division of Undergraduate Education (EHR/DUE). The IUSE program description [PD 14-7513]  outlines a broad funding opportunity to support projects that address immediate challenges and opportunities facing undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education, as well as those that anticipate new structures and function of the undergraduate STEM learning and teaching enterprise. The IUSE program description creates an opportunity to submit unsolicited proposals across all topics and fields affecting undergraduate STEM education. It also includes an opportunity to participate in the first phase of three different Ideas Labs aimed at incubating innovative approaches for advancing undergraduate STEM education in three disciplines (biology, engineering, and the geosciences). These “IUSE Phase I Ideas Labs” will bring together relevant disciplinary and education research expertise to produce research agendas that address discipline-specific workforce development needs. The purpose of this Dear Colleague Letter is to provide additional information regarding the focus of the three Phase I Ideas Labs and guidance on preparing applications for community members seeking to participate in them.
2014 Focusing on Industrial Recruitment of Scientific Talent Conference
Focusing on Industrial Recruitment of Scientific Talent (FIRST) Conference*Procter & Gamble (P&G) is committed to maintaining a diverse workforce. The Company has a strong and successful diversity program, as evidenced by P&G receiving the U.S. Department of Labor's prestigious Opportunity 2000 Award, which recognizes equal-employment hiring, retention, and advancement. P&G's commitment to equal employment opportunity is not one in word alone, which is why the Company, its minority scientists, and the Ph.D. Recruiting office developed this unique conference in 1990, intended to give participants a deeper understanding about industrial research careers.
Rutger's Green Energy Technology Undergraduate Program (GET UP)!
The REU Site: Green Energy Technology Undergraduate Program (GET UP) provides undergraduate research opportunities for undergraduate science and engineering students interested in green energy. GET UP is funded by the National Science Foundation under award: 1263250. The objectives of the GET-UP are to provide an enriching research experience, engineering training and professional development to undergraduate students for ten weeks in the summer. During this period of time, the students will have opportunities for cross disciplinary exploration through seminars in Engineering Ethics and Energy and Environmental Policy, and tours to facilities that generate power or produce "green" devices. Students will also participate in Industrial Spotlights where engineers and scientists from local companies present on ongoing product and system research/development, which will foster STEM research and industrial entrepreneurship.
STEM Advancement Program
The STEM Advancement Program (STEMAP) engages students from New Mexico regional universities, community colleges and tribal colleges in the research funded by New Mexico EPSCoR. Each summer, 12 students will take part in a week of workshops at New Mexico Tech on energy topics and scientific research and they will spend nine weeks working with New Mexico EPSCoR-funded faculty and students around the state on cutting edge research that is important to New Mexico. The summer program concludes in a research conference at which the students present their results.
Solar research opportunities for recent Ph.D. graduates
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) SunShot Postdoctoral Research Awards
The SunShot Postdoctoral Research Awards support innovative solar research by offering recent Ph.D. recipients the opportunity to conduct applied R&D at universities, national laboratories, and other research facilities.
Application Deadline: April 30, 2014
The PhD Project
Are you looking to become part of a full-time business doctoral program in the United States with the goal of becoming a business school professor? The PhD Project annual conference will be held on November 19-21, 2014, in Chicago, where more than 400 potential minority doctoral candidates will attend. This is an award-winning program, whose mission is to encourage minority professionals to become business professors so they can attract a new generation of minority undergraduates to study business in college. Visit the PhD Project’s website for more information about the conference and view a video of professors and doctoral students at last year’s PhD Project conference offering action steps for the new year.
DiscoverE Educator Awards!
The DiscoverE Educator Awards are shining a spotlight on the educators who are inspiring tomorrow’s innovation generation. By honoring the teachers who are hard at work in 6th to 12th grade classrooms (here in the US and abroad), the engineering profession wants to show its appreciation and respect for the educators who are helping students discover engineering. Unique to this program, engineers and engineering students are part of the nomination process. Applications are due on March 14, 2014
Intel Professional Development Series
Intel, in partnership with local diversity organizations, is proud to bring you Intel's Professional Development Series (iPDS)
Engineers Engaged in Creating Change Study
There is a research study designed to improve understanding of why women and men stay in their careers as engineers. We are surveying a national group of engineers who are currently working as engineers. This research will help us gain an understanding of the most important things that have led to engineers career choices. The results may help us make recommendations for improving the working environment for men and women in engineering careers. Surveys will be completed using the internet, and are expected to take about 20-30 minutes. Your participation is completely voluntary. If you are interested please click the link above.
