We have some big news here at Match Education - we’re going to Chicago next year. Match has recently partnered with the University of Chicago Crime Lab to work with some of the lowest performing schools in Chicago as part of a two-year clinical study researching effective ways to reduce violent crimes and drive academic performance in adolescent males.
I know your students are passionate about education reform and I believe they should consider applying to Match Corps: Chicago for the upcoming school year. It’s an 11-month commitment and is open to any major. It’s an amazing opportunity for top students who are interested in pursuing a career in education or would like to do something meaningful for a year before going to graduate school.
I’m sure you have some students who are still looking for opportunities for next year; if you wouldn’t mind passing this on to your students, we would very much appreciate your help!
Thanks in advance!

The peak hiring season for private and independent schools is about to begin! Please consider forwarding this information to students interested in teaching mathematics.
Southern Teachers Agency provides a free resource to prospective teachers with knowledgeable, professional placement counselors guiding candidates through the competitive search process. Hundreds of private and independent schools around the South list vacancies with STA each year, beginning in January! We encourage interested students to apply prior to the winter break to ensure ample time to prepare a credentials file for the peak hiring season. It is important that students begin talking with potential references and requesting letters of reference, as well.
All active STA candidates are invited to our job fairs. These job fairs provide an excellent opportunity for candidates to personally meet with school administrators who are trying to fill actual vacancies. Administrators then schedule interviews with candidates of interest to take place during the fair.
Southern Teachers Agency will hold three job fairs for active, registered STA candidates in 2013:
1) Best of the South! Atlanta, GA, February 9
Candidate application deadline: January 25
2) STA at NAIS: Philadelphia, PA, February 27 – March 1
Candidate application deadline: February 15
3) A Capitol Campaign: Washington, DC, March 23
Candidate application deadline: March 11
The STA online application can be found on our website at www.southernteachers.com <http://www.southernteachers.com> . As a reminder, private schools certainly value candidates who have participated in a teacher certification program, but have the flexibility to hire teachers with a strong academic background who have not taken education courses.
Thank you for your consideration. If you have questions, we would be delighted to speak with you about STA, our process, or the types of math teaching jobs available.

PhD training at the Harvard School of Public Health, seeks outstanding minority applicants for its graduate programs in Biostatistics.
Biostatistics is an excellent career choice for students interested in mathematics applied to real world problems. The current data explosion is contributing to the rising stature of, and demand for biostatisticians, as noted in an New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/06/technology/06stats.html?_r=1&hp <http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/06/technology/06stats.html?_r=1&hp> ) “I keep saying that the sexy job in the next 10 years will be statisticians … and I’m not kidding.” To date, Biostatistics has not been successful in attracting qualified minority students, particularly African Americans. Students best suited for careers in Biostatistics are those with strong mathematical abilities, combined with interests in health and biology. Unfortunately, statistics is not widely taught at the undergraduate level, and many potentially excellent candidates simply do not learn about the possibility of a valuable and fulfilling career in Biostatistics. Many minority students who could thrive in a Biostatistics program choose instead to enter medical school. Public health in general, and Biostatistics in particular, are not even considered as options. We would like your help in identifying qualified students before they make their choices regarding graduate school or other career paths.
All doctoral students accepted in our department are guaranteed full tuition and stipend support throughout their program, as long as they are making satisfactory progress towards the PhD degree. Every effort is made to meet the individual needs of each student, and to insure the successful completion of graduate work.
The web site for prospective students is here: http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/departments/biostatistics/for-prospective-students/ <http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/departments/biostatistics/for-prospective-students/>
Please note the deadline for submitting applications to the MA and PhD programs for entry in the fall of 2013 is December 15, 2012.
We look forward to answering any questions you may have. Questions about our graduate programs can be directed to Jelena Follweiller, at email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> .

The Department of Energy’s Office of Science and five other agencies (DHS, NASA, VA, Department of State, and Department of Labor), in collaboration with the Partnership for Public Service, have developed a pilot website (http://careers.science.gov) to highlight science and technology (S&T) careers in the Federal government and provide a collection of resources of interest to students and professionals considering an S&T career in public service.
As you may know, Federal agencies face many challenges in recruiting S&T talent, including:
- the lack of general awareness and understanding of the outstanding career opportunities in the Federal government for scientists and engineers;
- the growing retirements of the "baby boomer" generation, which will lead to increased vacancies of key S&T positions across the Federal agencies;
- competition with the private sector for top talent in S&T fields; and
- the limitations of USAJOBS.gov—the primary avenue for applying to science and engineering positions for most Federal agencies—for communicating what jobs are available and what these jobs are really like.
The pilot website will be available through February 2012. A Feedback Survey developed with and hosted by the Partnership for Public Service will help provide insight as to how the Federal government might improve its recruitment of S&T professionals at all levels.
The participating agencies invite you to look at the website (http://careers.science.gov) and complete the short survey. Feel free to share this message with your colleagues and students.

"The Mississippi Teacher Corps <http://mtc.olemiss.edu/> (MTC) is the most competitive teaching program in the country. The two-year program, designed for non-education majors, recruits college graduates to teach in the Mississippi Delta and other "critical-needs" areas, and offers a host of benefits, including teacher training and certification, a full scholarship for a master's degree in education, job placement that includes full pay and benefits and, most importantly, the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of students in one of the poorest areas of the country."
The MATCH Corps, a highly selective one-year urban education fellowship, is looking for top-notch seniors who are interested in joining next year’s Corps. To apply, just fill out this form <http://apply.matchschool.org/apply.php> .
The MATCH Corps program began in 2004 and is the first of its kind in the nation. The Corps is a group of 135 top recent college graduates who work one-on-one with six to eight MATCH High School, Middle School, or Elementary School students each day for an entire academic year. Corps members live together in apartments nearby the Middle School and Elementary School, and in a dorm on the top floor of the High School. All three schools are open-admission Charter Public Schools in Boston, MA. This full-time service year program is designed to fully close the academic Achievement Gap between minority students and their non-minority peers, one student at a time. Each Corps member works to guarantee the academic success of MATCH students while building personal relationships. Corps members also undertake secondary projects such as serving as teaching assistants, and may also coach teams and power extracurricular programs.
We also offer an optional teacher training program called MATCH Teacher Residency. In MTR, Corps members receive additional training on the weekends with the aim of becoming unusually effective first year teachers in high-poverty schools. Graduates of MTR go on to teach at some of the most highly regarded charter schools in the country and tend to outperform other rookie teachers in the classroom.

♦ Summer Program in Quantitative Sciences at the Harvard School of Public Health: June 2 - 30, 2011
Website for Eligibility & Requirements: http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/biostats/diversity/summer/
Deadline for Application: February 15, 2011
If you like mathematics and would like to learn how quantitative methods can be applied in the study of human health, then the Summer Program in Quantitative Sciences is for you. The Summer Program will introduce you to the power and excitement of math applications to public health, medicine, and biology, and possibly convince you that this is the career direction you've been looking for!
The Summer Program is an intensive 4-week program, during which highly qualified undergraduates receive a whirlwind introduction to the fields of biostatistics and epidemiology and to the use of quantitative methods for biological, environmental, public health, and medical research. The program also provides advice about graduate school and the application process through GRE preparation, meetings with different departments of the Harvard School of Public Health, and individualized mentoring by Harvard faculty.
Participants take non-credit introductory courses in biostatistics and Stata (a statistical program), and attend a series of afternoon topical seminars. The seminars, led by faculty members from various departments at the Harvard School of Public Health, are designed to broaden participant's understanding of the relationship of biostatistics to human health by providing a snapshot of methods developed and applied to real research projects in different fields.
Participants also gain research experience through small-group research projects directed by faculty and graduate student mentors. Students apply statistical methods to real data to address important and timely questions. For example, one group of students recently studied whether there was a relationship between body mass index and postpartum depression. Another group analyzed data from a clinical trial to treat head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. And another research project examined the effects of arsenic exposure on proteomic profiles in Bangladesh. At the end of the program, students present their research to the group and to affiliated faculty.
Alumni of the Summer Program have earned or are enrolled in graduate degrees in many campuses over the country, including Masters or PhDs in Biostatistics and Epidemiology.
Potential applicants should have some aptitude and interest in quantitative methods and an interest in public health as a career. Prior exposure to statistics is not required. Housing and travel are free and a living stipend of approximately $1700/month is provided for the month of June. Please email any questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> .
