Career Month prepares students, alumni for Job Fair next week

A great resume and polished interview skills don't happen by chance, and that's why Career Month brings workshops to help students and alumni do their best at the fall Job Fair.

Career Month is filled with workshops for job-seeking students and alumni and wraps up with the fall Job Fair Wednesday, Sept. 21, at the Maverick Activities Center.

Even if you are pursuing a field that might not be represented at the Job Fair, the experience of speaking with professionals can be invaluable. More than 120 employers are registered.

Find a complete list of employers attending the Job Fair as well as a calendar of events at hireamaverick.uta.edu.

Student groups are encouraged to volunteer for one-hour shifts 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Deadline to volunteer is Friday, Sept. 16. To volunteer, visit the Career Center in Room 216 of Davis Hall or contact the Career Center at 817-272-2932 or careers@uta.edu.

Practice safety at all times on campus

UT Arlington police urge members of the campus community to be aware of their surroundings and exercise caution. Recently, two students were robbed of their cellphones, one in the evening and one in the afternoon.

If you believe someone is following you when you enter or leave a building, walk to a public area where there are people present or to an assistance call box and contact the UT Arlington police.

Students should avoid walking alone at night. Contact police if you see any suspicious persons or situations and provide information about an offense.

For a police escort, call 817-272-3381. In case of a campus emergency, call 817-272-3003.

National center to assist doctoral students

UT Arlington is joining an elite, national organization whose purpose is to produce better university teachers in the science, technology, engineering, and math fields.

The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL)—funded through a multimillion-dollar grant by the National Science Foundation—aims to provide doctoral students with better tools to teach students in STEM fields. Each participating university will build a program on its campus, and the network of schools will share teaching methods, success stories, and key techniques to better prepare those graduate students to be successful teachers in the classroom.

Kevin Schug, an associate professor in chemistry and biochemistry, will spearhead UT Arlington’s Organizational Network for Teaching as Research Advancement and Collaboration (ON-TRAC), which will be housed in the Office of Graduate Studies.

NASA taps chemistry professor to build machine for Mars geology

Chemistry Professor Purnendu “Sandy” Dasgupta, renowned for his innovations in the field of ion chromatography, has been awarded a nearly $1.2 million grant from NASA to develop technology that could help pave the way for human missions to Mars and beyond.

Dr. Dasgupta will use the funds to develop an ion chromatograph for extraterrestrial explorations. The goal is to create a new system for testing the chemical composition of extraterrestrial soil. The project was one of eight nationwide recently funded by the Astrobiology Science and Technology for Instrument Development grant program of the NASA Astrobiology Program.

“By creating an easily portable and robustly designed ion chromatograph, we’re hoping to rapidly expand scientists’ knowledge of extraterrestrial geology and geochemistry,” Dasgupta says. Proving organic ions exist in Martian soil could be a first step to identifying organic compounds, the building blocks of life.
