On January 12-13th, 2018, the Binghamton University Biology Graduate Student Organization (BGSO) will be hosting graduate students from Binghamton University and several surrounding institutions to present their research to members of the Upstate New York and Pennsylvania research community. The BGSO would like to invite local dissemination of research and foster positive collaborations among neighboring universities with your participation. 

Interested graduate students and faculty should submit oral or poster presentation abstracts (limit 300 words) with a completed application to Alex Horspool ( by December 29th 2017 to guarantee consideration for the 2018 symposium. Morning coffee on both days will be provided for all attendees, in addition to parking costs for guests from other Universities. Lunch for for both days will be a total cost of $10. This event will be funded by: the Biology Graduate Student Organization (BGSO), a subsidiary of the GSO, using Student Activity Fee funds, GSO CAFÉ funds, and Biology Department funds.

It would be fantastic to have students from Ithaca College attend this symposium to help cultivate the exceptional community of biological researchers in Upstate New York and Pennsylvania. If you could forward the attached flyer and abstract application to your department I would greatly appreciate it. Additionally, I would be more than happy to speak with you over the phone if you have any questions, or visit the school to speak with you, and/or your department in person.

Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from your students this December!

Success Academy Charter Schools  is based in NYC. They announce their summer internship program which serves as a pipeline to employment. (The goal is to be able to offer a junior who completes the internship a full job offer as they enter their senior year.)

Briefly, though there are teaching positions available, applicants do not have to have an education background. Success offers an in-house certification embedded within their training structure, and are encouraging graduates with a liberal arts and sciences background to apply. Please note that there is also an operational arm to Success Academy, so the background of a candidate can be varied and robust.

Our main contacts for the organization are Katie McDonald and Lauren Nappi (and IC alumna, 2013).;
