Clements International Expat Youth Scholarships 2010

Clements International offers US$10,000
in Expat Youth Scholarships

Clements International is pleased to announce its 2nd annual Expat Youth Scholarship program for expatriate students. US$10,000 will be shared between six winning students, aged 12-18, of any nationality, who have spent the last two consecutive years living outside of their home country.

The scholarship contest offers expat students a chance to share their experiences of living in a foreign country through a 500-750 word essay and a creative image answering the question “Where would you go in your flying house?” The “flying house” is inspired by the idea that students who spend their childhoods moving between different countries and cultures acquire unique life experiences.

Language and Linguistic Evidence in the 1641 Depositions

In support of a major multidisciplinary Arts and Humanities Research Council funded project Language and Linguistic Evidence in the 1641 Depositions, led by Dr. Barbara Fennell, we are seeking a Research Assistant or Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Software Development/Humanities Computing. You will work with the Principal Investigator (PI) and a team of other linguists, computer specialists and historians to further develop and analyze a digitized corpus of quasi-legal statements from witnesses to the 1641 rebellion in Ireland. Consulting with Humanities Computing experts in Dublin, the postholder will develop facility with IBM LanguageWare?, and will work with the PI and Early Modern English Research Fellow to develop the ontologies needed to manipulate the digital corpus in order to be able to interrogate it about the nature of
the language represented within it (for interpretation by historical linguists, dialect and text analysis specialists and cultural, political and social historians). The postholder will then proceed to help develop an
interactive research site for use by linguists, historians and lay inquirers. Read the rest of this entry »

Abu Dhabi: Full Scholarships for Graduate Study 2010

Full Scholarships for Graduate Study at MASDAR Institute in collaboration with
Massachusetts Institute of Technology at Carbon Neutral, Zero Waste City

The MASDAR Institute of Science and Technology in Abu Dhabi is pleased to announce full scholarships to highly qualified graduate students from around the world for its Fall 2010 intake.

The MASDAR Institute is the centerpiece of the MASDAR Initiative, a landmark program by the government of Abu Dhabi to establish an entirely new economic sector dedicated to alternative and sustainable energy.

* Reimbursement of TOEFL and GRE exam fees (upon registration at Masdar Institute and submission of original receipts)
* A competitive stipend per month (cost of living allowance).
* No bond or conditions to the scholarship upon graduation

Details of faculty profiles, current research, programs offered, course description, scholarships, and other information including an online application module is available at http://www.masdar.ac.ae. Read the rest of this entry »

UK: PhD Scholarship in Mechanical Engineering

PhD Scholarship in Mechanical Engineering Multi-scale modelling of bone cutting

Mechanics of Advanced Materials Research Group
Wolfson School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering

A PhD Scholarship is available for a high-calibre candidate to work on a new project on miniature ultrasonic cutting devices for high precision minimal access orthopaedic surgical procedures. The successful candidate will be a part of research collaboration between Loughborough University, University of Glasgow and University of Edinburgh. The proposed programme of research brings together a unique collaboration between the three research groups in the UK that are engaged in researching the mechanics of the surgical tool/bone interaction to deliver devices that rely on power ultrasonics to improve the accuracy and control of orthopaedic surgery involving deep penetration into bone. In combining this expertise, the aim is to deliver a new generation of novel miniaturised ultrasonic bone cutting devices to deal with the challenges of minimal access bone cutting surgical procedures. The proposal is supported by Mectron Medical, the inventors of piezosurgery, and Sonic Systems, a leading UK SME dedicated tdeveloping new ultrasonic technologies. Read the rest of this entry »

POSTDOCTORAL POSITION BIOCHEMISTRY IN PARIS

A 2 to 5-YEAR POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN PARIS

A Post-doctoral Position, awarded by The Leducq Foundation, is immediately available at the INSERM-UPMC (University
Pierre & Marie Curie)-Paris VI, Hpital Piti-Salptrire, in a dynamic
research group highly interested in cardiac cell membrane expression of
ion channels. The lab is
localized in center Paris.

The Project: Our group is
conducting fundamental research to characterize the development and
electrophysiological consequences of cardiac heterogeneity at the
molecular, cellular and tissue
levels, in the context of cardiac arrhythmias. Many study axis are
currently investigated, such as the
roles of protein partners specialized in the anchoring and the targeting
of ion channels (Circ Res. 2009
27;104(6):758-69.) and the role of vesicle trafficking in the control of
ion channels in the cell membrane
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2009 25;106(34):14681-6).

The successful candidate will be a
skillful and extremely motivated scientist with a PhD. She/he
must have a strong background in physiology, and cellular and molecular
electrophysiology, but, must
deal easily with the biochemistry of membrane proteins, cell biology and
molecular biology. The
applicant will be involved in collaborations with other members of the
group and must show a high
motivation to interdisciplinary work. He may also possess knowledge and
experience of another
excitable tissue than the heart. He will have the opportunity to use
different type of imagery tools such
as confocal, 3-D deconvolution microscopes, run FRAP experiments and
participate to the
development of TIRF (Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence) microscopy
and videomicroscopy. Read the rest of this entry »

UK: Scholarships in Social Statistics at The University of Manchester

Scholarships at The University of Manchester
The Discipline of Social Statistics and the Centre for Census and Survey Research at the University of Manchester offer an MSc programme in Social Research Methods and Statistics. The programme provides a firm grounding in advanced quantitative methods, taught within an applied social science framework.

The programme is designed to be accessible to non-statisticians yet more focussed than most of the existing Masters courses in social research methods. The MSc course offers relevant and marketable skills for a career in research and is recognised for PhD training by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). Modules are taught with an emphasis on hands-on training in the application of methods and software. The programme is available full-time over one year or part-time over two years.Scholarships that will cover the fees of up to three excellent full time (Home/EU) students or of one excellent full time overseas student are currently available.
