E-CAMPUS COURSE through Oregon State University, SPRING 2015
Global Environmental Change: Using Spatial Data to Inform Decision  - BEE 411 CRN # 58732 - BEE 511 CRN # 58733
Instructor: Dr. Dominique Bachelet, Department: Biological and Ecological Engineering

Teaching Assistant: Kai Foster, Conservation Biology Institute
Email:, Phone: 541.368.5804
Each week students will engage with each other using course materials 1) to discuss and examine geographic information resources (GIS) and on-line mapping tools, 2) to explore and critique current conservation datasets and information used by managers; and 3) to propose practical applications to address global environmental change questions.

What students are saying about online courses: "I have to admit, I am extremely thrilled that this course is being offered online---as an "out of state" student, online courses cost me a fraction of regular non-resident tuition (everyone on e-campus pays the same rate!), so I always jump at the opportunity to take my required courses online. The benefits of e-campus courses are twofold for me, as I've been working as a part-time research assistant…and trying to squeeze work hours sometime between 9am and 5pm into a full on-campus course schedule can really become a juggling act some terms. So, as far as I'm concerned, the department deserves a giant THANK YOU for beginning to offer courses online for those of us who are not strictly "traditional" students, so to speak."

The Master of Professional Science degree, offered at University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (, is intended for students interested in generating innovative solutions to marine, coastal and climate related issues.  Our students are exposed to a unique, multidisciplinary and applied curriculum, including science theory, field and laboratory training, legal and regulatory knowledge, communication and media training, and the development of business savvy.
We prepare our students for science careers in industry, government, and non-profit organizations, where employment demands are growing. The curriculum is structured to allow students to complete their degree in as few as 12 months, with the training and real-world experience necessary to prepare them for careers in today’s professional science job market.
The degree programs offered in Fall 2015 include:
Marine & Coastal Science
*       Applied Remote Sensing
*       Aquaculture
*       Coastal Sustainability
*       Coastal Zone Management
*       Exploration Science
*       Fisheries Management and Conservation

position in W AK, 2 ecosystem field courses

Summer field tech for NSF project in W AK
I am looking to hire a Res Tech for the period 1 April to 1 September to work on our NSF YK delta goose herbivory project.
They need to be pretty field savvy and a bit tough as there is a big early season camp put in via snow machines and hauling gear from Chevak to our field site, 20 miles west.
~$18 per hour for 172 hours per month for 5 months: almost $16k plus the project provides all the food for the summer.

The start date is 1 April, so it is likely the candidate might not be a student, the start date is pretty fixed.

       Ecosystem Field Studies (EFS) is pleased to announce summer sessions of our 2 field course opportunities: Caribbean Ecosystem Field Studies & Colorado Ecosystem Field Studies.  These courses (ENST 391) are approved for 3 undergraduate semester credits through the Environmental Studies Program of the University of Montana at Missoula and are open to undergraduate students in an ecosystem related department/major such as yours.
      In these courses, students learn basic concepts in ecosystem science and engage with a wide variety of hands-on field research methods while conducting an original field research project.  New this year are extended credit options of a post-course Independent Research project or Internship at our course partner location.  These extended opportunities will greatly enhance the overall educational strength of the program.
      I am kindly requesting the attached pdf announcement be distributed via email and/or posted in your department. I have also attached a text announcement below if attachments are problematic. I sincerely appreciate your assistance in distributing this course announcement.  There is no set deadline as we accept qualified students on a rolling basis until the course fills.
