Learn about the Juneau Icefield

Hi All,

There is a series of events taking place this week to celebrate the Juneau Icefield. These include: a science talk tonight, an artists conversation on Friday evening, and a storytelling event on Sunday evening. These events are a great opportunity to find out more about the icefield as well as the Juneau Icefield Research Program, a summer field experience for undergraduate students. Details (times and locations) of the presentations are included in the attached poster.

Cheers,

Eran

Seasonal Jobs in Marine/Coastal Ecology

Hi All,

Yumi Arimitsu at USGS is hiring 1-2 seasonal positions to work on fish and bird surveys in Prince William Sound and Cook Inlet. See details in her email below. She is here in Juneau and you can contact her with questions. Closing date for applications is March 4.

Cheers,

Eran

FROM YUMI:

I’m hoping you could pass along some info to any promising students that may be interested in gaining field experience conducting marine ecosystem research on boats in coastal Alaska.

 

We are looking to hire 1-2 seasonal positions (up to 9 months in duration) to work on seabird and forage fish projects in Prince William Sound and Lower Cook Inlet, Alaska. Our field work is mainly staged off the 50’ USGS R/V Alaskan Gyre or other small boats. We will be conducting acoustic-trawl surveys for forage fish, at-sea marine bird surveys, zooplankton, and oceanography sampling. We will also be monitoring population and productivity of common murres and black-legged kittiwakes on colonies in Lower Cook Inlet.

 

Here is a bit more info about the projects:

Calling all programmers

Hi All,

The Juneau Chapter of the Alaska Developers Alliance (ADA) is going to start hosting its monthly meetings on the UAS campus. The ADA offers an opportunity to learn more about programming and interact with developers from around Alaska.  The January meeting is tomorrow (1/23) at 6:45 pm in Egan 108. The video meeting will be linked with the Fairbanks and Anchorage Chapters and there will be a video presentation by Kateryna Nesmyelova from New Zealand (title and description below). There will also be free pizza.

Title: Mindshift to CI/CD: The future is here

Description: Kate will talk about the shift you need to undertake - the shift in your skills, your attitude, but, first of all, the very way you think about the software - to catch up with the CI/CD pace - with a QA perspective

 

A brief description of the ADA is below and more information about the group can be found here: https://akdevalliance.com/

The Alaska Developers Alliance is an organization focused on bringing together all segments of technology in Alaska: from programmers, to industry, to academia. It was built as a community to get students plugged in; to provide continued learning opportunities for professionals; and to inspire, educate, and connect the community. All tech professionals, hobbyists, and enthusiasts are welcome to join. Member interests run the gamut from video game & VR development; to web & mobile development; to enterprise software & tooling; and more. The Alliance bridges the geography of Alaska with chapters in Juneau, Anchorage, and Fairbanks. It currently has over 200 members and regularly holds state-wide meetups and hackathons joining all three locations by live-streamed video calls.

Please pass this along to anyone that you know who may be interested that is not on this list. They are very keen to get UAS students involved in the group.

Thanks,

Eran
