The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard Information Session

Are you a graduating senior looking for a full-time work opportunity in biomedicine? Come join us to learn more about Research Associate opportunities at the Broad Institute!

Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard was launched in 2004 to improve human health by using genomics to advance our understanding of the biology and treatment of human disease, and to help lay the groundwork for a new generation of therapies.

The institute was founded to seize the opportunity that arose from the Human Genome Project -- the international effort that successfully deciphered the entire human genetic code. Despite that accomplishment, scientists knew they still lacked a clear understanding of the genetic basis of disease, and how to translate that understanding into more effective prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Caregiver Sessions

As you may recall, the college asked faculty and staff with caregiving responsibilities to participate in an anonymous survey last fall. The goal was to learn more about how members of our community are doing with managing the demands of work and caregiving during the pandemic.

As part of its response to the survey, the Office of Human Resources is now offering sessions that will provide a forum for caregivers to connect and to share their experiences with one another, including strategies that they have developed to cope with what they are facing. Facilitators may also pass along to HR helpful suggestions that may emerge from these conversations.

Each session will be limited to 25 participants. Additional dates will be added if needed and/or if participants would like to reconvene.

Jodi Foley and Laurie Frankl will be facilitating the sessions. If you have questions, please reach out to them via email at jfoley@amherst.edu or lfrankl@amherst.edu.

City Year Information Session

Join us on Wednesday, February 10, from 11:30am - 12:30pm to hear more about opportunities at City Year!

From City Year's Website (https://www.cityyear.org/about/):

At City Year, we believe that all students can succeed and that developing the skills and mindsets of children and young adults contributes to strong, vibrant communities—outcomes that benefit all of us.

The challenge
Many students lack access to learning environments and resources they need to thrive in school and in life, due to systemic inequities that disproportionately affect students of color and students growing up in low-income households.

What we do
City Year AmeriCorps members serve in schools all day, every day, preparing students with the social, emotional and academic skills and mindsets to succeed in school and in life.

Developing civic leaders
City Year AmeriCorps members not only make a difference in the lives of students they serve, but also acquire valuable skills that help them and prepare them to be leaders in their communities and their careers.

As City Year continues to innovate alongside our school and district partners, we aim to share what we are learning and contribute to a broader conversation about how to ensure equitable access to learning opportunities for all students.

This event will take place via Zoom. For inquiries about the accessibility of this event or to request any accommodations, please contact the Career Development Center Team at cdc@mtholyoke.edu. Please make accommodation requests no later than Wednesday, February 3, to give implementation time, however, in all situations, a good faith effort will be made to provide accommodations up until the time of the event.

Call for Applications: NAIS Mellon Mini-Grants and Residencies | Five Colleges, Inc.

Five Colleges, Incorporated, has been awarded a $2.5 million, four-year grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to help its member campuses transform how they approach Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAIS) with the goal of enhancing teaching, learning and scholarship in the field. As part of this multi-year initiative, FCI is offering mini-grant and residency opportunities to Five College faculty and staff interested in working collaboratively to integrate NAIS into their curricula.

Five College full-time faculty or staff members responsible for creating curriculum are encouraged to apply for mini-grants and lead team projects to develop one or more course modules, a new course, or a cluster or sequence of courses (such as language study). This funding opportunity is also open to faculty with a more multi-disciplinary background and no prior experience in NAIS who are interested in infusing Indigenous approaches into their courses through collaboration with other faculty experts. Mini-grant projects should include multiple faculty and can also include Five College staff, students, and community participants as collaborators. Faculty can also apply for residencies to host Indigenous artists, authors, activists, and community historians. Residencies can span a few weeks to an academic year. Please note that campus policies during the pandemic will severely restrict residencies but creative and/or remote options will be considered. 

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis with two more deadlines this academic year: March 2 and May 2021 (specific date to be determined). Additional rounds of applications will be available through 2022. A virtual Information session will be offered prior to each deadline to assist applicants in refining their proposals. The next information session will be held on February 16 from 4 to 5pm. Applicants are encouraged to attend information sessions and read the Frequently Asked Questions available on the FCI website.
