Science Teaching Positions through Southern Teachers Agency

K-12 private and independent schools around the South are searching for great teachers to join their school communities for next year.  Schools plan to have in-person classes in the fall, and we have over a hundred science openings, many of them focused on biology.

Our schools seek teachers with subject-matter expertise who are enthusiastic about working with children and teenagers—what is important is a gift for connecting with and caring for kids. Certification is typically not required (except in elementary grades and specialty areas).

Southern Teachers has matched great candidates with schools in the South for over a century, taking the time to interview candidates, and know the person, not just the resumé. Our services are free for our candidates.

The sooner you apply, the more opportunities you will have to pursue as you search for the right school community for you.   

Apply now at SouthernTeachers.com.

Advanced Inquiry Masters Program - Miami University

The Advanced Inquiry Program (AIP) is an affordable master’s program that combines web instruction from Miami University with experiential learning and field study through the Chicago Zoological Society--Brookfield Zoo, one of several AIP Master Institutions in Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Jacksonville, New York City, San Diego, Seattle, and St. Louis. If you've had a chance to distribute the info below to students, colleagues, and any others you think might be interested, thank you so much! If not, we hope you might consider sharing it now--before the holidays, when many potential students make decisions about graduate school. 

In the Advanced Inquiry Program from Miami University’s Project Dragonfly, students join a growing network of conservation leaders while gaining unprecedented opportunities not found in more traditional master’s programs. Online, at the zoo / botanical garden, and in their own backyards and neighborhoods, each student creates and engages in projects that affect positive social and ecological change to improve their communities, the environment, and the human condition.

Applications are being accepted until February 28 at http://AIP.MiamiOH.edu. Courses begin in May 2022.

To support involvement by a broad range of professionals, Miami University discounts tuition for participants accepted to AIP graduate courses. Enrollment is open to applicants with a bachelor’s degree, regardless of academic major or profession.

Applicants may contact the AIP Coordinator at the Chicago Zoological Society--Brookfield Zoo, Agnes Kovacs, at agnes.kovacs@czs.org.

Volunteer Position - Evolution and Socio-Ecology of Small Mammals in the Succulent Karoo of South Africa

Volunteers needed January-April 2022

Minimum stay 2 months

(NOTE: This is an unpaid volunteer position)

Opportunity: This is a great opportunity for anybody who wants to get more experience in field work related to animal behavior, evolution, eco-physiology, and ecology before starting an MSc or PhD project.

Project: We study the evolutionary and ecological reasons as well as physiological mechanisms of group living, solitary living, and social flexibility in bush Karoo rats and the striped mouse. The focus will be on costs and benefits of solitary living in bush Karoo rats, determining its social organization and social structure. As this species is diurnal and the habitat is open, direct behavioral observations in the field are possible.

What kind of people are needed? Applicants must have an interest in working in the field and with animals. Hard working conditions will await applicants, as the study species gets up with sunrise (between 5:30 and 6 AM), and stops its activity with dusk (7 PM). Work during nights might also be necessary. Work in the field will be done for 5 days a week. Applicants must be able to manage extreme temperatures (below 0 at night in winter, sometimes over 40?C during summer days). Applicants must both be prepared to live for long periods in the loneliness of the field and to be part of a small social group. There is no internet, no telephone, and no cell-phone reception at the research station.

Work of volunteer field assistants: Trapping, marking and radio-tracking of small mammals; direct behavioral observations in the field. Volunteers are expected to help with maintenance of the research station (water pump, solar power, etc.).

Confirmation letter: Students get a letter of confirmation about their work and can prepare a report of their own small project to get credit points from their university for their bachelor or masters studies.

Costs: Students have to arrange their transport to the field site themselves. Per month, an amount of Rand 1900 (around 100 Euro) must be paid for accommodation at the research station. Students must buy their own food in Springbok. Including extras (going out for dinner; shopping), you should expect costs of about 500 Euros or 600 US$ per month. Students can get an invitation letter to apply for a travel grant at their home university / home country.

Place: The field site is in the Goegap Nature Reserve near Springbok in the North-West of South Africa close to Namibia. The vegetation consists of Succulent Karoo, which has been recognized as one of 25 hotspots of biodiversity. It is a desert to semi-desert with rain mainly in winter (June to September).

Corona situation: Only vaccinated persons are allowed to stay at the research station. No visitors are allowed. Students are not allowed to go on leave during their stay. We have Corona measures at the station that vary with the local situation. Travel to and entry into South Africa is allowed when you have a negative Corona test.

When and how long: We are looking for volunteers for the period January to April 2022. Volunteers must stay for a minimum of 2 months.

How to apply? Send a short motivation letter stating why and for which period you are interested and your CV via email to carsten.schradin@iphc.cnrs.fr. There is no deadline, but applications are continuously reviewed.
