Title: “Finding the diamond in the rough: Insights on how to help your idea shine through and become a new product”

 Description:  Every week dozens of new & innovative technologies are reviewed that have the potential to transform the drug discovery and development process. From chemicals, to software to cell culture plastics, my inbox is inundated with novel ideas that have the ability to change how scientist’s discover new therapeutic agents and treat devastating diseases. With so many promising technologies, how does one idea stand out from the rest? How does your become that one technology (that one product) that will be selected to be developed into a commercial product? In my presentation, I will share some insights on how to grab the attention of the reviews and increase the chances that your technology will shine through and be selected for new product development.

Research Opportunity at the National Energy Technology Laboratory

Research Scientist – Turbines
National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL)

Morgantown, WV

Apply by 9/30/20

Through the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE), this posting seeks a graduate student or postgraduate to engage in projects with the Research and Innovation Center (RIC) at the National Energy Technology Laboratory.

The Penn State START (Steady Thermal Aero Research Turbine) project is designed to study turbine blade cooling approaches in a warm-flow experimental rig. The project focuses on innovating turbine cooling using true-scale engine hardware, developing sensors and instrumentation for smart turbines, advancing additive manufacturing for turbine applications, and integrating and embedding sensors through additive manufacturing. There is a need for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling of the turbine blade geometries used in the experiment to provide a better understanding of the experimental data.

The successful candidate will have a strong background in these elements (but not necessarily all):

  • CFD Modeling
  • Heat Transfer
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Thermodynamics

Program information: Detailed information about the program can be found at http://www.orau.gov/netl. Please send a CV to Peter Strakey at peter.strakey@netl.doe.gov.

How to apply: Information in regard to the opportunity and a link to the application can be found at:

Recycling Education & Research Foundation Scholarship

The Recycling Education and Research Foundation (RERF), formerly known as Recycling Research Foundation, (RRF),  is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization closely associated with the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc. (ISRI). Our mission is to “sponsor projects which promote public awareness, education, research, and the advancement of recycling.”

Since 2010, RRF has sponsored a graduate scholarship to individuals seeking a graduate degree in programs that support the scrap processing or the recycling industry as a whole. Recognizing the need for affordable graduate education, the foundation created a $5,000 national scholarship open to graduates regardless of their affiliation with ISRI.

The foundation has extended the deadline for the application to July 15, 2020. Please see our application for more information. Visit ISRI.org/RRF for more information about our organization.
