Science, Technology and Engineering (STE) Career Changers Wanted!

Boston University is looking to enroll STE career changers and recent physics, engineering or chemistry degree holders in a National Science Foundation funded Noyce Master of Teaching (MAT) scholar and service program and general MAT scholar program in teaching.

The Noyce MAT program provides for a full scholarship (valued at ~60K) covering the summer of 2017 and fall/spring semesters of 2017/18. Upon awarding of the Master of Teaching degree from the School of Education, the Noyce Scholar is obligated to provide teaching services within a high needs school district for two years. A few examples of high needs school districts in the Boston area are Boston, Randolph, Somerville, Cambridge, Chelsea, Revere and Malden.

If you are interested in finding out more about these scholarship and service opportunities and/or other physics or chemistry teaching opportunities, kindly contact Mark D. Greenman at

Mayo Research Opportunities

Hope Physics Aluma Dr. Cynthia McCullough asked us to share the following opportunities with the Hope Physics community:

  • Mayo Graduate School offers PhD and MD/PhD training to future leaders in biomedical research and education. Training is especially distinctive for the world-class research laboratories at Mayo Clinic campuses in Minnesota, Florida, and Arizona, and Mayo Clinic’s unique funding model where all PhD students are awarded 5-year internal fellowships to select the mentor of their choice with no teaching responsibilities. Mayo Graduate School particularly welcomes applications from international and underrepresented students. The Mayo Graduate School application deadline is Dec. 1, 2016. 
  • Mayo Graduate School Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program offers a world-class opportunity for undergraduates to conduct a summer research project for 10 weeks while developing technical skills, networking, and enjoying special weekly seminars about current research. The SURF application deadline is Feb. 1, 2017.
  • Mayo Graduate School created and sustains the oldest competitive NIH-funded Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP) in the U.S. This program enriches PhD- and MD/PhD-bound post-baccalaureate students from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical research, with the goal of a future biomedical research workforce whose diversity matches that of our country. Participants benefit from mentored research, graduate courses, and focused training in communication skills. The PREP application deadline is May 1, 2017.
