HMSC Reunion

The OSU Hatfield Marine Science Center is turning 50, and you’re invited to join us in Newport for an All-HMSC Reunion. The Reunion weekend from Friday, April 10 through Sunday, April 12 will be a rare opportunity for anyone who was a part of HMSC’s 50-year history to connect with friends and colleagues from around the country. It also includes Marine Science Day on Saturday, April 11 as a chance for former faculty and students to connect with HMSC’s current research and faculty/staff. We’ll have a registration site up soon, for participants to register for the weekend and purchase tickets for the Reunion Dinner. See http://hmsc.oregonstate.edu/all-hmsc-reunion for details including schedule of events, or contact Maryann at 541-867-0234 or maryann.bozza@oregonstate.edu


NSF is coming to your area!  Our next “NSF Day” will be held at the University of Washington at Bothell.  NSF Days are one day workshops that are designed to share with prospective NSF-funded PIs best practices and tips to writing strong proposals in order to secure funding for valuable research.

While it will be held on April 1 (aka April Fool’s Day), it is no laughing matter.  We are trying to engage as many early career researchers in the region as possible (we have a capacity of 200!).

As someone who successfully obtained NSF funding, you can, I’m sure, attest to the importance of writing a powerful proposal.  Can you help us get the word out about this NSF Day to your colleagues and friends in the area (and further away, if they are willing to travel to Bothell)? Feel free to forward this link:  http://1.usa.gov/1AkdUvB, forward this email and/or tweet using #NSFday and the link http://1.usa.gov/1AkdUvB
