Will the Yellowstone supervolcano erupt in your lifetime? When will it erupt again?

These special programs provide research opportunities and unique experiences that take science and math out of the classroom and into the real world. We employ early career postdoctoral fellows and faculty teams to develop course-based research experiences CRE as a comprehensive institutional mechanism of student development. This project increases the quality and quantity of research opportunities available to Spelman students, as well as enhances the curriculum offerings related to STEM disciplines.
This program provides scientifically talented students from groups underrepresented in scientific and engineering fields with the opportunity to pursue undergraduate studies in science and engineering in the highly motivating and supportive environment of Spelman College. Project Contact Retina Burton: Doug Eaton at Emory University. This will be accomplished by the establishment of a G-STEM office which will work synergistically with other offices and departments on campus to establish formal international research collaborations and develop a structured mentoring program for STEM students seeking global research experiences.

At the Symposium, as an early-career chemist, you will have an opportunity to deliver a talk about your research and your organisation to the next generation of leaders in the chemical sciences in a relaxed, supportive environment.
In particular, if you enter a relationship which lasts until the end of the postdoc, your partner has to be open to relocating, or you have to leave academia, or you have to do some complicated long distance thing, or break up. That’s a nontrivial consideration. I know a lot of people who met their partners in grad school there, people from other unrelated departments or who were unaffiliated with the university entirely. But of course you’re right that it’s about as isolated a college town as you can find anywhere in the US.
Now that truly is a very small community where one might step very carefully around questions of romance I would not worry about the lack of potential for dating. I was a postdoc for three years, and although it was quite a lonely life, I had a lot of friends, mostly PhD students from outside my own department. So although I was shut in my office all day, the graduate community in general was a great way to meet people. However, I did not find anybody. I think key reasons for this were a uncertainty about my future I was doing a postdoc in a foreign country and in an area in which I felt insecure and probably wasn’t going to continue, and I think that women found this lack of confidence and future plans unattractive and b incompetence.
Now I am working in industry, and I don’t find that single life in industry is any better or worse than single life as a postdoc. It’s actually harder to meet people because there is no campus, and the people I do meet tend to be less interesting.

My undergraduate alma mater, UC Irvine, used to have Irvine Meadows West YT , which was an on-campus trailer park where you could live in some rather, um, interesting set-ups for next-to-nothing. Given housing prices around UCI, that was nothing to sneeze at. Alas, this being Southern California, it was turned into a parking lot in the s. Only a concern if you’re one of the poors.

Posted on November 30, by Scott Alexander I. If the world was created by the Invisible Hand, who is good, how did it come to contain so much that is evil? Can he expect to get rich? No — if Google stock was underpriced ie you could easily get rich by buying Google stock , then everyone smart enough to notice would buy it. As everyone tried to buy it, the price would go up until it was no longer underpriced.
Big Wall Street banks have people who are at least as smart as your uncle, and who will notice before he does whether stocks are underpriced. The city has lots of skilled Thai chefs and good access to low-priced Thai ingredients. With the certainty of physical law, we can know that city will have a Thai restaurant.
