CCI Pop-Up Quick Questions in BiHall MONDAYS from 7:00-9:00 PM

If you’re not able to get to CCI during the regular Quick Question hours, Nadani Dixon, CCI Peer Career Advisor (PCA), will be hosting September Pop-Up hours in the BiHall Great Hall every Monday from 7:00-9:00 PM or in Proctor Lounge Mondays 2:30-4:30 PM. Find her there to:

  • Develop and review resumes and cover letters
  • Search for internship and employment opportunities
  • Prepare for interviews
  • Access resources like Handshake
  • Refer you to appropriate CCI advisors

Nadani in her own words: “I’m a junior Computer Science major and Gender, Sexuality & Feminism Studies minor from Kingston, Jamaica. At Middlebury, in addition to CS and GSFS, I’ve taken classes in Middle Eastern History, Dance, Math, Sociology/Anthropology and Chemistry. At Middlebury, I’m involved in RIDDIM World Dance Troupe as the Treasurer for 2018-2019, Pan Caribbean Student Organization (PCSO), Black Student Union (BSU), the American Chemical Society, Women in Computer Science (wiCs++) and Steam Girls as one of the Co-directors. I’m interested in the role technology plays in our world today: the challenges and benefits. Simply, the factors, ideas and beliefs that make it a controversial tool and how it is used in our 21st century world.

On campus, I’ve worked as the Dance Technical Director and Performing Arts Series Intern. In Summer 2017, I interned at the Office of Digital Learning and Inquiry here on campus as the Digital Pedagogy and Instructional Design intern. During my internship, I created an app for the Middlebury Museum of Art, developed and design WordPress sites, researched critical digital pedagogy and more. Last summer, I interned at Team4Tech on a project in Costa Rica focused on improving education through technological implementations and teacher training. I love to swim, dance, plan and organize events, practice yoga and garden. I’m excited to be a PCA and look forward to meeting you and answering any and all questions you may have.”

Nadani is an incredible resource and we are thrilled to have her part of our team!

The Flint Water Crisis: The Promises and Perils of Practicing Science for the Public Good

Fall 2018 Howard E. Woodin Environmental Studies Colloquium Series with Siddhartha Roy, Postdoctoral Research Scientist, Civil Engineering, Virginia Tech

Thursday, September 20, 12:30 PM in Hillcrest 103

We give scientists and engineers great technical training, but we’re not as good at teaching ethical decision-making or buil

ding character. Take, for example, the environmental crisis that recently unfolded in Flint, Michigan — and the professionals there who did nothing to fix it. Siddhartha Roy helped prove that Flint’s water was contaminated, and he tells a story of science in service to the public good, calling on the next generation of scientists and engineers to dedicate their work to protecting people and the planet. Check out his TED Talk here.

Siddhartha Roy is an environmental engineer and science communicator who works at the nexus of  water quality, public health, and environmental justice. He and his team helped uncover the Flint. Michigan water crisis.

Cosponsored by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.

This opportunity comes to us from Kathryn Benson ’13:

We’re thrilled to announce the 3rd annual Quip Diversity Scholarship! Recipients will be invited to visit our office in San Francisco for a full day of learning, mentorship, and meeting the team (all expenses paid) — and they will each receive $5000 toward their education ($1000 for each runner-up).

At Quip, a Salesforce company, we emphasize building a company that prioritizes work-life balance, inclusivity, and diversity.

By running this scholarship, we’re hoping to have an impact beyond our team and do a small part to encourage students getting started in computer science.

We’re looking for applicants who:

  • Are part of a group that has been historically underrepresented in STEM (including but not limited to: Women, African American, LatinX, American Indian, first-generation college students, LGBTQ+, and/or people with disabilities)
  • Have demonstrated interest or declaration of studying computer science or a related field.
  • Are currently enrolled as an undergraduate or masters student in the U.S. or Canada graduating in 2019 or later.
  • We are also accepting applications from students who are currently enrolled in or accepted into a full-time, onsite cohort in one of these coding programs.

Funded CLIMB Simulator Engineering Intern with Pathfinder Systems, Inc

Application expires April 6th!

“An intern with Pathfinder is not just a junior member of the team who will “reproduce papers and get coffee,” but someone with real responsibility of the kind that many young people do not see for many years after entering the work force of a larger organization.”

What is CLIMB?

Colorado Leaders, Interns and Mentors in Business (CLIMB) seeks to educate the leaders of tomorrow through providing high-quality internships and educational experiences. Through the CLIMB program, students from Yale, Middlebury, Brown, Stanford, MIT, Harvard, Wesleyan, Denison and Northwestern McCormick School of Engineering are invited to participate in 10-week internships in the Denver Metro area that complement their collegiate experiences and help them grow as leaders, entrepreneurs, and individuals.

Who is Pathfinder Systems, Inc?

Pathfinder Systems, Inc engages in research and development of new types of training systems for air, ground, sea and space applications with a focus on defense-related training simulators and on research applications for very large remotely piloted aircraft.

About the Internship:

The intern will provide engineering, technical writing, analysis, and hands on lab work, depending on project assignment and intern qualifications. The intern will contribute to product quality and timely delivery. They encourage innovative solutions – what they typically do is build systems never built before. Inventiveness and diligence of interns in pursuing solutions invented is very valuable to them.

Ideal candidates will:

  • have significant, real-world experience as part of a small, dedicated, capable team
  • work on advanced software, making use of the tremendous processing power of Graphic Processing Units
  • see how a simulator emerges from concept through engineering and testing into an operational system
  • report day-to-day to a Program Manager, and will work daily with graduate engineers and professionals
  • be one of two kinds, depending on the intern’s area of studies and inclinations: those with business or humanities backgrounds may be involved with coordination of activities, documentation, and cost estimates; those with engineering or scientific backgrounds could participate in design, development, testing, delivery, and documentation of systems

Does this sound like a good fit for you? Check out the full internship description in Handshake.

Application deadline Friday, March 9th at 7:00 pm.

*If you happen to also speak Dutch speaker, you may, if you wish and the program requires it, travel to the Netherlands approximately for a week with a senior Pathfinder representative!

**If you have at least a Student Pilot certificate, you may, with permission from parents and the CLIMB program and after training by Pathfinder, participate in flight tests as instrumentation operators on board light aircraft!
