Of possible interest: Science-Corps "to teach science to underserved students and build science capacity globally. "

Just got an announcement about this from a colleague and thought it might be of interest:



Science-Corps

Providing an opportunity for recent PhD graduates, as Science-Corps Fellows, to teach science to underserved students and build science capacity in the developing world
Finished, or finishing your PhD in a science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) field? Interested in taking a six-month break from the research/academic track to work in a different part of the world and share your expertise where it is needed? Science-Corps has launched a new fellowship, which provides STEM PhD graduates the opportunity to teach science, design curriculum, and build scientific capacity abroad.

Science-Corps is recruiting STEM PhD students near completion and up to four years post degree completion for placement starting June of 2018. Applications are due by January 31, 2018.

Great episode of "I Contain Multitudes" on Symbioses in Hydrothermal Vents

Love this - featuring Colleen Cavanaugh - the person who got me into microbiology ...
