How diverse is the legal profession (lawyers, judges) in terms of race and gender in the U.S. and in other countries? This is an opportunity to learn and contribute knowledge about gender, race, and the legal profession in the U.S. and countries around the world (e.g., in Africa, the Caribbean, North America, South America, Europe).
The molecular engineering (ME) program at the Transromantic Interfaces and Coatings is accepting applications to fill two research positions for conducting research at the frontier of materials discovery, exploring the organic networks and frameworks with applications in carbon capture, carbon dioxide conversion, oxygen reduction, molecular separation, and ion sorption. This project is in line with two recently awarded grants from National Science Foundation proposing to develop a new approach to ME.
“Pause” is a style of letterform design that has multiple variations and is scalable for use as fonts. This typeface design is taking liberties to transform Helvetica into an expressive typeface. Multiple font variations of Helvetica have been created since its inception but none portray dimension or shadows and has always been known as one of the most utilitarian typefaces, not celebrated for its ability to convey an emotion or express a certain feeling.
General The Weather Ready Farms program is looking for an undergraduate and/or graduate student(s) to work as a graphic design intern who will collaborate with the program team to develop a brand identity and marketing materials for the program.
Summer=20 hours per week; Academic year=10 hours per week
The way how the community is designed and their built environment conditions have a direct effect on the physical activity, injuries, health and well-being of its residents in both individual and community contexts. This project improves a reliable community assessment framework and tool with which people in a neighborhood can examine residential conditions and other environmental characteristics for use in pro-actively improving and strengthening their neighborhood.
Modernizing the agricultural industry is critical in building a sustainable future. One important component of agricultural modernization is to manage agricultural wastes from the perspective of circular economy. A waste-to-resource approach should be developed to convert the organics in animal wastes to clean energy (e.g., hydrogen gas) or value-added products (e.g., medium chain carboxylic acids, or MCCAs). Hydrogen gas is an important form of energy in decarbonizing the economy, while MCCAs can be used as feedstocks to produce valuable chemical compounds.
The current research will focus on Chronic Liver Diseases. Liver fibrosis represents hepatic insufficiency and leads to end-stage liver disease and failure. Liver fibrosis results from repeated liver injury causing excessive scar tissue to build and liver to get stiff and impair hepatic function. This can limit the flow of blood to the healthy liver tissue causing a momentum of scar tissue buildup.
You will join a dynamic research team to develop drugs, vaccines and other novel therapeutics for combating several important viral pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2, Ebola and Zika. This position will be involved in drug screening or vaccine development.
