    Hey Everyone,

    I can send out an email to the FLMNH student listserv, but wanted to check on some details…

    I see this from Jeanette’s message below:

    Feb 20 (9:35-10:25a; FOSSIL meeting scheduled at 11a): CV/Resume Workshop Presented by the Career Center, to be arranged by @molly-selba

    And just to confirm, we are still meeting in Carr 521? We are only inviting 10 additional people (besides us) so we’ll need people to reply and confirm that they will be attending? People should bring their CV/Resume digitally, printed, or both? And, am I missing any other important details?

    ** Below is the email I’m planning to send – does all sound right?
    Hi Everyone,

    You are invited to attend a CV/resume building workshop presented by the Career Resource Center and hosted by the MacFadden lab group. A representative from the CRC will provide a short presentation and then open the floor for general or more specific CV/resume questions. Feel free to bring a laptop with a digital version of your CV/resume or a paper copy (or both). It’s also okay if you do not have a CV/resume prepared yet and want to join for some tips and advice.

    Date: Wednesday, February 20th

    Time: 9:35 am – 10:25 am

    Location: Carr 521

    Please reply to confirm if you plan to attend by 5 pm. Tuesday, Feb. 19. Space is limited.

    Let me know if you have questions!​

    – Rachel

    • It is actually being held in Dickinson… Here are the details:
      Topic: CV, Teaching Statement and Research Statement
      Phone Number: 941-773-9888
      Email: [email protected]
      Location: Dickinson 371
      Date: Wednesday, February 20, 2019
      Time: 9:30 AM
      Expected Number of Attendees: 20

      You can come with your CV and specific questions if you want, but usually they come with slides so you don’t need to bring your own CV if you don’t want to.

      – M

      • Okay, thank you! I’m assuming it’s the Dickinson Classroom 371 (where seminars are held?) and goes until 10:30? (Sorry if we totally talked about this and I missed it!) Do we need a final headcount by a certain time?

    Tomorrow (2/13) we will have our P-T at the regular time, 11:45. I need to find out who has not yet received the Mitchell Hope Award from the SW Florida Fossil Society. To be eligible, you cannot have received the award before. Top priority is for a UF student doing research on Florida fossils.

    I will also talk with you about a funding opportunity from the FOSSIL project.

    Jack Kallmeyer is looking for oral presentation submissions for his session at NAPC on amateur-professional connections. If FOSSIL is funding your trip and you aren’t sure what else to present on, please consider his session. This can simply be a talk about how amateur paleontologists have enriched your research in some regard – collecting, loaning specimens, helping ID, etc.

    Please let me know if this interests you, so I can relay it to Jack.

    • I could totally give a talk about this with museum and Haile 7G ‘Tapir Challenge’ fossil dig participants, but I’m doubting I can make it to NAPC =/ If anyone wants to focus on Montbrook amateurs I can provide a ton of images!

      • I can as i will already be there!

        • This sounds great! Let me know if you need help with the abstract – deadline is March 1 and I think they are free to submit. I’ll tell Jack so he doesn’t worry so much =]

        • This sounds great! Let me know if you need help with the abstract – due March 1, should be free to submit. I’ll let Jack know so he can stop worrying!

    • I can certainly give a talk in Jack’s session. I would probably choose a few examples of amateur/professional collaborations and then discuss strategies/tips for creating these partnerships, with an emphasis on using the myFossil platform.

      • That sounds like a fantastic idea. I can help with the abstract if you need/want it! I’ll relay to Jack the interest. Thanks!

    Does anyone know where the poster tube is? I was hoping to borrow one for AISL. @jeanette-pirlo says she does not have it but will check her office when she gets in.

    I’m proposing that we do practice talks for SE GSA on March 20th and we invite the Fossil Project social media team and my volunteer Fauve to present their research to our lab.

    Yep! I have a short powerpoint explaining the rules of the game and listing some helpful hints on elevator pitches.

    Confirming class today at 11:45.  I will connect via SKYPE via Jeanette.

    • I won’t be present today, resubmitting my manuscript and finishing up the AISL poster! Have fun with the lightning talks.

    If you have published or presented on content related to myFOSSIL and it is not on this page: https://www.myfossil.org/publications/

    Could you please send me a link and/or citation. I’m working on my poster for AISL and want to include some numbers.

    Great discussion the other day about Twitter. See my new file uploaded today (in “Files”) about the Cambridge University guide to Twitter.

    Hey everyone, could you add your planned outreach events to the Google Calendar? The link is under the group description. Thanks!

    Next week I will connect via SKYPE. Jeanette has a key to room 521. Regular (not early) time.

    Please note that we will be interviewing candidates for the museum ed faculty position in February. Given all of your interests, it is really important that you participate and make your voices heard.  There will be a grad student pizza lunch for each. Adania is on the search committee.

    Julie Bokor 15-16 February

    Katie Stofer 18-19 February

    Megan Ennes 21-22 February

    Jessica Roberts 25-26 February

    It will not only be interesting to meet them, but also for each of you to better understand the interview process. Perhaps we can put this on the agenda for discussion at our lab meeting next week.

    Here is a link to a google doc @rnarducci and I put together on using Twitter: Effective use of Twitter 

    We included the lab group handles, popular hashtags, and some accounts to follow. The basic outline of the slides are also on there.

    If you want to revisit the slides they can be found here: Twitter

    Thanks for the productive discussion!

    • Thanks, Jenn!

      As a follow up to today’s meeting, you might want to update your profile and bio before you start following people. Often, they will be more inclined to follow you back if they know more about you and your credentials.

    We will meet tomorrow at 9:35 in the Director’s Conference Room in Dickinson. Please open this up to other graduate students.

    Feb 6th–I will connect via SKYPE.

    Feb 20th is problematic for me for the 2nd half of the period, BUT you can meet as a group to discuss CVs at 9:35 (and I can stay to 9:50). If this makes sense, then I will arrange for a room. Please promote this to other graduate students.

    I need to change next Wednesday’s meeting from the regular time to period 3 (9:35 to 10:25). Please only let me know if that cannot work.

    Jen and Rachel will lead a discussion about Twitter. Thanks, Bruce

    @adania-flemming has the iDigTRiO shadow schedule been updated for Friday Feb. 1? @rnarducci & @michael-ziegler were asking about it today. I have reserved the conference room for the duration of the event. Scanning activity is w/ @jeanette-pirlo.

    Schedule I have:
    12 noon- Collection tour
    12:20 pm- Scanning activity
    2:00 pm- Career chat with a Post Doc
    2:30 pm- Scanning activity

    • Also, how should we go about the chat/how many students? Should we all do a one on one interaction? Have something prepared to discuss/show or will they probably just have lots of questions?

      • I can’t speak to the number of students, last Adania said they hadn’t gotten a final count yet. I’m fine with whatever seems easiest. I don’t think we need to formally prepare anything. They have a formal panel the following day with grad students (?) so this would be a more informal setting for them to ask more targeted questions. I think it could be beneficial for the students if we have some background on our personal journey – opportunities, successes, failures, roadblocks – but this could naturally come up during the conversation rather than each of us rattling off bits about ourselves.

    • The schedule remains the same as Jen posted. Students are currently signing up for spaces. We hope to have them all signed up by Friday, to allow communication with shadowers. Therefore we will have exact numbers on Friday, if not Monday. Vert Paleo was listed for up to 4 students, hence there will not be more than 4 students in the chat. The chat is meant to be an informal discussion as Jen described, where students will have the opportunity to ask questions about your journey , relevant to their academic paths.

    Here’s another funding opportunity that kind of works like GoFundMe, but specifically for scientific research. I got the following email yesterday:

    “I work with Experiment, the crowdfunding platform for scientific research. This year, Bighorn Basin Paleontological Institute is launching a new Paleontology challenge to fund paleo research. Projects addressing any area of paleontology are invited to apply.

    Are you currently working on a project in paleontology that could use some support? In the past seven years, Experiment has helped paleo researchers raise more than $175,000 for their research. For this grant challenge, we’re selecting around 15 projects to launch crowdfunding campaigns together in early March. The project with the most backers will be awarded an additional $1000, on top of what they raise through Experiment. First drafts are due by February 8th, 2019.”

    The person that contacted me was Nicole Sharpe ([email protected]) if you want more info.
