I am looking for a student (or students) with excellent research and editing skills to work with me on my biography of Wakara, the Ute warrior chief, slavetrader, and nation builder. (see the description of the project here:
So ubiquitous is the phrase “achievement gap” in both the education literature as well as in popular culture that it is symbolic of the historic and systemic inequities that persist. In theory, identification of achievement gaps should inform directions for equitable solutions. However, action drawing on such data has lagged, both locally and nationally. New “gaps” are now proliferating the education lexicon. Understanding how authors and researchers are conceptualizing these gaps has implications for both measurement and practice to ultimately advance the field.
What does “water quality” mean to you? Chances are, if you ask three different people how to define the term, you would get three different answers. Perhaps to you it means the chemicals in the water, while to another it means whether or not one can swim in the water. In this project, we are determining how different groups of people define “water quality” and what this means for how decision-makers and stakeholders approach policy and management practices.
We are looking for research assistants to help with data collection and management in a variety of projects including testing a family treatment drug court track in the Lancaster County Juvenile Court, implementing Child-Parent Psychotherapy with trained clinicians, and evaluating the use of Reflective Practice among professionals working with at-risk parents and children to reduce burnout and turnover. More information about these and other projects can be found at https://www.nebraskababies.com/projects.
The purpose of this research study is to promote self-management in a chronic heart failure (HF) population to improve adherence to treatment guidelines using a mobile health app. We will evaluate the feasibility of an 8-week self-management intervention using tailored strategies including problem solving, decision-making, and action planning. Daily messages, self-monitoring activities and real time virtual visits are included in the intervention. The UCARE student will assist in patient enrollment, data collection and troubleshooting technology devices.
Students will re-engineer traditionally rigid robots and machines using intrinsically soft materials (elastomers, gels, and fluids) to create the next generation of soft robots and machines that are safe for human interaction. We are specifically working on creating soft robots and stretchable electronics that are highly robust and exhibit the extraordinary resilience of biological tissue.
We are looking for students interested in learning more about embedded electronics, multifunctional materials, and robotics.
I am looking for someone with skills in using data-base systems, especially relational databases. The individual will need to be able to work with (or teach her/himself) MS Excel and MS Access, API, JSON, CSV files, and perhaps more. There will also be data-entry work.
The Niobrara River is one of the mid-West's only National Scenic Rivers. The swiftly flowing waters are important habitats for many plants and animals and provide abundant recreational opportunities for tourists and visitors. This project seeks to understand the ecology of the Niobrara River ecosystem, specifically the quality of the water in the river and the streams that flow into it from surrounding fields or rangelands.
