REU Research on Chesapeake Bay – Are you looking for a summer research internship studying ocean, coastal or environmental science? I invite you to check out the Maryland Sea Grant Summer REU program. We bring upper-level undergraduate students to the Chesapeake Bay to conduct individual research projects with a scientist-mentor at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. We select undergrads in many disciplines, including engineering, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, ecology and marine and environmental science.
In particular, we encourage students from colleges and universities where access to marine science and to research opportunities is limited and who are from groups traditionally underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and math. We believe bringing together students from many disciplines, backgrounds and parts of the country makes for a more interesting and educational summer experience.
Join us for our 12-week program from May 17 to August 9, 2020. We are accepting applications through February 14. Find more information and apply here

2020 Woods Hole Partnership Education Program (PEP) – PEP is a ten-week intern program hosted by six Woods Hole Science Institutions in collaboration with the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore (UMES). The program targets undergraduates (especially rising juniors and seniors) and runs May 31 through August 8.
PEP combines course work with directed independent research in earth and ocean science. PEP interns spend 4 weeks in a summer course that surveys global climate change and participate in a five-day research cruise aboard the Sea Education Association Research Vessel Corwith Cramer, studying the oceanography of the New England continental shelf.
PEP covers all costs of travel, room and board, research expenses, the research cruise, and four hours of undergraduate credit (via our academic partner, UMES). PEP students receive a $4,500 stipend at the end of the program. Pending the results of a grant proposal, we anticipate accepting 16 students into the 2020 PEP cohort.
Application deadline for the 2020 program is February 15, 2020. An overview of the program and application instructions are available here

Similarly, the infectious and immune-mediated diseases research communities have become a data-intense enterprise. NIAID places a high priority on transforming these data into knowledge to more fully understand pathogen transmission and evolution, pathogen-host interactions, host immune response, and infectious and immune-mediated disease pathogenesis, as well as to develop new and improved diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines.
As a Research Participant in the NIAID Emerging Leaders in Data Science Fellowship Program, the participant will receive training and hands-on-experience in applying and managing big data sets, bioinformatics strategies and tools to support projects in NIAID’s extramural and intramural divisions. Appointments will be for one year, with an option to renew for a second year. The program is rotational in design, with participants conducting 3-4 month rotation-based projects throughout NIAID’s intramural and extramural programs. NIAID actively encourages fellows to participate in a variety of developmental assignments during their fellowship to broaden their perspectives on NIAID’s research mission, strengthen managerial and technical competencies, develop a broad understanding of NIAID’s data needs from a variety of views, and further develop leadership abilities. In addition to a stipend, Research Participants will be provided with a travel and training allowance and health benefits.

ACMRS Annual Conference: Unfreedom – Unfreedom marked the lives of various people in the premodern world. Many factors played a role in shaping the forms of unfreedom prevalent in the premodern era: violence and coercion; shame and dishonor; disconnection of kin groups and destruction of social networks; and individual and collective strategies for economic, political, and social success that depended on the subjection of others.
This year’s conference will focus on those whose status was defined primarily in terms of unfreedom, coercion, and constraint rather than the enjoyment of freedoms or privileges, including but not limited to slaves, serfs, captives, prisoners, pledges, hostages, and forced marriage or concubinage.
Plenary talks by Omar H. Ali and Jennfier L. Morgan, a reception at the Desert Botanical Garden, and an organ performance with Kimberly Marshall. Find more information as well as register here.
