AccessComputing: an NSF-funded project to increase students with disabilities in computing
The Tech4Good Lab has a few positions open for Summer quarter for undergraduate students from all majors. We are looking for people who are extremely responsible, love learning, and have a strong drive to apply technology for social good. For this coming quarter, we have positions doing the following types of work:
User research: interviewing and analyzing interviews to understand user needs and context,
Web development: coding an app using an Angular/NgRx/Firebase stack,
You would be contributing to a variety of projects in the lab related to designing systems to better support the future of education, work, and community engagement. Some of the platforms we are working on include:
An app aimed at scaling apprenticeship learning, which supports people in learning through micro-roles while supporting non-profits as they learn,
An app aimed at microlearning through small groups to create learning environments supporting curiosity, creativity, and relationships,
An app containing short activities for team/group community building, and also creating "small group networks" that can facilitate interesting collective goals,
An app aimed at supporting chat-based career mentorship between industry professionals and groups of students,
Joining requires a commitment of 10 hours/week for the quarter for independent study credits. If you are interested, fill out the Tech4Good Lab Interest Form and send an email to David Lee (email@example.com).
The Grainger College of Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. We would like to invite qualifying juniors and seniors in your undergraduate engineering programs to apply for our 2022 Multicultural Engineering Recruitment for Graduate Education (MERGE) Campus Visit Program. This year's live virtual visit event is scheduled for Friday, September 23, 2022, 2:00 - 5:30 pm central time.
The UC Undergraduate Experience Survey (UCUES) is one key way for students to give feedback that faculty, leadership, and staff within Baskin Engineering and throughout UC Santa Cruz will rely on to impact academic programs and student services.
The survey will be open through spring and early summer, through the end of June, and there are many prize drawings for giftcard prizes ranging from $50 to $200.
Complete the survey by going directly to https://relay.ucsc.edu/r/e3220 or read more about the survey at ucues.ucsc.edu.

We're looking for a junior level staff person to join the Fast Sensors group here at SCIPP. It's not impossible that this would turn into a career position (Specialist track), as it has for one or two of your prior students. Although the person would likely grow into more sophisticated technical roles, for now we seek someone that has experience (or perhaps even just interest) in:
- Provide support for runs at both domestic and international accelerator laboratories, including designing and assembling mechanical supports and developing data acquisition approaches and utilities
- Load PC boards that implement and support various microelectronic designs, including ASICs and high-speed compact signal paths, and carry out characterization studies
- Have experience in, or interest in learning, the design of PC boards and associated servicing functions for precision timing and high frame rate signal applications
- Be responsible for several laboratory operational functions, including purchasing and shipping
- Oversee general laboratory organization and hygiene
Beyond this, and into future years, opportunities may exist in high-speed PC board design and layout, TCAD-simulation-base design of solid state sensors, ASIC design, and automated electromechanical assembly and prototyping.
