Research Associate Position at ECMC and Buffalo General

Posted by Tim on August 1, 2019 in Career Opportunities, Community Announcements, Research Information and Opportunities

Part Time Research Associate Positions Available with the

UB Department of Emergency Medicine

The Department of Emergency Medicine is looking for several part-time Research Associates (RAs).

We are currently looking for RAs to work in the ECMC ED and the BGMC ED.

Research Associates directly approach emergency department patients and family members treated in the emergency department.  RA’s must be able to work in a clinical environment that is unpredictable and fast paced. RA’s will see patients in many clinical scenarios, some of which may be disturbing to some individuals. Prospective RA’s should consider whether the emergency department is a setting in which they feel comfortable working.

Research Associates’ daily responsibilities include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Identification of patients who meet ongoing study/quality improvement project inclusion and exclusion criteria
  • Obtaining informed consent from patients and/or family members for participation in research when required

    • Other activities as the need arises

Work Schedule: The Research Associates’ program provides coverage in the emergency departments Monday through Sunday, from 8 am to Midnight.

  • Shifts are scheduled in 4- or 8-hour blocks
  • The total number of shifts worked per week is flexible, but a minimum commitment of 12 hours availability per week is required.
  • RA’s are assigned a permanent schedule each semester (e.g. an RA will work Tuesdays, 8 am-4 pm every week during the Fall semester)
  • Once a schedule has been agreed to by the RA and the Research Coordinator, the RA is expected to work all scheduled shifts or find coverage
  • RA’s are expected to periodically cover shifts of other RA’s who request off.  This ensures that all RA’s can have flexibility when needed.
  • RA’s are invited back to the program and schedules are changed each semester depending upon the RA’s performance and availability (e.g. Fall, Winter Break, Spring, Summer)
  • Prospective RA’s should be available to work for a minimum of 2 semesters

Compensation: The pay is $12.00 per hour.

Minimum Qualifications Required:

  • Graduation from a 4 year university
  • Past or current field of study related to healthcare, health sciences, pre-
  • Ability to interact with the public in a professional and courteous manner
  • Completion of a human subjects and research ethics training course upon hire
  • Transportation to and from the worksite is required.
  • Ability to arrive at scheduled shift on time and stay until the end of scheduled shift consistently

Applicants should be willing to start in the fall AND continue into the winter break and spring semester with the understanding that a minimum commitment of 12 hours is needed for the spring Semester as well.

Desired Qualifications:

  • Experience interviewing study participants in a clinical environment
  • Experience interacting with patients
  • Experience using electronic medical records
  • Familiarity with conducting chart reviews for research studies
  • Students taking a “gap year” are strongly encouraged to apply

Summer 2019 Positions for Mathematics Grad Students

Posted by Tim on January 28, 2019 in Career Opportunities, Student Job Opportunities, Teaching Opportunities

Canada/USA Mathcamp is looking for graduate students as leaders for its summer 2019 session.

  • When: June 19 to August 1, 2019
  • Where: Lewis & Clark College, Portland, OR
  • Compensation: $4,000 stipend plus room and board for six weeks, and travel expenses
  • Application Deadline: February 15, 2019
  • Details and online application: http://www.mathcamp.org/mentor/

This summer, we invite you to:

Be a leader in a vibrant community of talented and enthusiastic high-school students and energetic faculty. 

Teach and learn what most interests you, in an atmosphere of freedom and excitement. 

Be a friend and mentor to 120 marvelous kids. 

Be an architect of an experience that those 120 kids will cherish for years.

Canada/USA Mathcamp (www.mathcamp.org) is a summer program for talented high school students from all over the United States, Canada, and the rest of the world. At Mathcamp, students interact with world-class mathematicians, explore advanced topics in mathematics, and find a true intellectual peer group.

The mentor job is a hybrid between a teaching position and a camp counselor role. Your primary responsibility is to teach great classes, and you’ll be doing this in the context of a residential summer program: you live, eat, and play with the campers. It’s a lot of work and a lot of fun.

As a mentor at Mathcamp, you get an amazing teaching experience: there is no set curriculum, so you create your own classes and teach the math you’re interested in. From group theory to projective geometry, from complex analysis to cryptography, from fractals to voting theory – there is an abundance of mathematics that can be taught (with a little imagination) at camp level. You’ll have support (in both curriculum design and pedagogy) from master teachers, and you’ll work with students who are exceptionally smart and engaged.

Mentors are also the camp’s primary leaders and organizers, and cultivate the rich life of the camp by planning activities, setting camp policy, and serving as residential counselors—essentially, running the camp, and bringing it to life with creative ideas, inside and outside the classroom. Initiative, flexibility, and tolerance for a certain degree of chaos are a must—that is part of what makes Mathcamp an exciting place to work!

Since women and minority students often face a shortage of role models in mathematics, we are especially eager to recruit mentors from these groups.
