The Battelle Center for Science, Engineering, and Public Policy in the John Glenn College is putting on a special event on April 9 from 4-6pm as part of our aerospace student communities of practice and engagement. We are bringing together 8 accomplished military pilots (helicopters, planes, ships, etc) to hear about their experiences and lessons learned—all moderated by a faculty partner of ours, Col. Kevin Cullen. All are welcome to attend!
A Time to Lead: Agricultural Sciences for a Sustainable World
Thursday, April 11, 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.
We are bringing a former Senator to campus for a brief talk and Q&A on how to combat global food insecurity through agricultural science! Come hear from Senator Richard G. Lugar, former chairman of the US Senate's Foreign Relations and Agricultural Committees.
Buckeye Engineers Work
April 1 - 21
The Buckeye Engineers Work (BEW ) campaign runs now through April 21. Last year, ECS had 369 new co-op/internships reported, and 236 new career employment plans reported during this campaign.
If a student reports a new job, they are entered into a drawing for one of ten $30 Amazon gift cards. Students can report jobs  here .

Jobs and Internships
CSM Students: Report your Internship to Mac!
CSM students who will be completing an internship this summer should email Mac Ware.260@osu.edu to report their internship!
Graduate Research Assistant
Funding (stipend and tuition) is available for a student wishing to pursue a Master’s degree. This graduate research assistant (GRA) position deals with highly quantitative information, and spans detailed simulation and modeling, and data analysis. A requirement for this type of work is proficiency in computer programming. Proficiency in a (any) programming language. Position will use Matlab extensively, and Fortran as well for some projects. A background in C or C++, or another scripting language (i.e. Python or R), would also be valuable. 

The simulation and modeling projects will require physics and biology for simulating vegetation and soil processes. Some background in physics is preferred, and the typical background of an engineering student is likely sufficient for this. Fluid mechanics can be a plus for specific projects that they might take on, and if a particular interest in computational fluid dynamics there are potential projects that could make an excellent fit. Some basic background in biology or ecology is good, but not required. 

Students more interested in data analysis than simulation and modeling would need a programming background, and a background in statistics as the data analysis / machine learning approaches require the extensive use of statistics.

A 3.0 GPA is required. The GRE must be taken—no minimum score required. Contact Candy McBride  mcbride.215@osu.edu
Other Opportunities
SKY Happiness Retreat
The SKY Happiness Retreat provides scientifically validated techniques (SKY meditation) to manage stress, worry and anxiety.
 
Over 60 independent studies published in peer review journals ( http://skymeditation.org/research/ ), have demonstrated a comprehensive range of benefits from practicing SKY meditation and related breathing techniques taught during this retreat. From reducing stress to getting better rest, these techniques have demonstrated measurable impact on quality of life.
 
Thanks to university funding, scholarships are available for OSU students to attend this retreat at a significantly discounted price. SKY retreat is happening on OSU Columbus campus from Apr 13 – Apr 15 2019. For more information, and for signing up for the retreat, please visit:  go.osu.edu/skyhappiness
Student Campus Climate Survey
Ohio State is conducting a climate survey on sexual misconduct and all students are encouraged to participate. The survey will be available to all students until April 12 at  http://go.osu.edu/climatesurvey . Participation is voluntary, and once the survey is submitted, responses are completely anonymous. Information collected will help enhance current policies and services, and to inform longer-term strategies and programs. Ohio State’s first priority is a safe and healthy campus for all members of our community. All of us play a role – do your part and be heard to have a positive influence on our campus.
Have an event or announcement to share with FABE students, faculty, and staff? Submit your event or announcement name, date, location, and a brief description to  fabe@osu.edu . Submissions must be received by noon the Thursday before the newsletter goes out.
