 2006 nsf advance workshop:

Workshop Authors: Mike Orchard (RiceELEC), Tom Killian (RicePhysics), Sallie KellerMcNulty (RiceDean of Engineering), Karen Hirschi (Baylor), and Farinaz Koushanfar (RiceELEC)
Slide 1: welcome and introduction (tom killian)
 Think hard about finding what is right for you.
 What is important for you?
 Most applicants – go into the process without spending enough time at this.
 Be proactive and find the information you need.
 Application and interview process can teach you much about your field and yourself.
 Be honest and up front about your goals and interests.
Slide 2: what are your options? (sallie kellermcnulty)
 Research institution vs teaching institution vs government lab – and overlap between them
 Post doc vs permanent position
 First job vs last job point of view
Slide 3: what should you consider when looking for the right institutional fit? (mike orchard)
 Think about what makes you productive…what do you need?
 Collaborative, resources, facilities
 Not the same for every person
 Quality of life
 Cost of living, weather, other interests
 Expectations of you and institution
 Teaching load, junior leave
 During the interview process, the institution is trying to make its best impression…it won’t get better than this.
 Support for new faculty
 Joint academic appointments
 Space available
 Senior colleagues
 Future directions of the department
 Quality of the graduate students
 Quality of the undergraduate students
 Support of senior administration
Slide 4: what resources do you have for learning about institutions and options? (karen hirschi)
 Advisor – you can make it easy for him or her by providing good information on what you are considering
 Networking
 Junior faculty
 Colleagues at other institutions
Slide 5: what will your strategy be? (farinaz koushanfar)
 Various stages – pre application, application, interview, after offer
 Be proactive, especially once you have an offer – it makes you look strong!
 Ask to meet with women faculty separately
 Ask to meet with students, human resources
 Ask to sit in on a class or seminar – see what they show you.
 Make your application appropriate for the institution
 Networking, or at least making it look like you are in the network by making your application appropriate for the institution
 During the offer phase, envision and negotiate for what will make you succeed…think broadly
 Being engaged and asking hard detailed questions on every visit will let the committee know you are interested. This is a good thing.
 Identify who is on your committee and who is not – junior faculty can provide good information on the choices you are faced with.
Questions & Answers
can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
sure. what is your question?
ninjadapaul
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X6)^2
so it's 20 divided by X6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul
im all ears I need to learn
Sherica
right! what he said ⤴⤴⤴
Tamia
what is a good calculator for all algebra; would a Casio fx 260 work with all algebra equations? please name the cheapest, thanks.
algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.
Al
if A not equal to 0 and order of A is n prove that adj (adj A = A
rolling four fair dice and getting an even number an all four dice
Differences Between Laspeyres and Paasche Indices
No. 7x 4y is simplified from 4x + (3y + 3x) 7y
J, combine like terms 7x4y
im not good at math so would this help me
I'm not good at math so would you help me
Samantha
what is the problem that i will help you to self with?
Asali
how do you translate this in Algebraic Expressions
Need to simplify the expresin. 3/7 (x+y)1/7 (x1)=
. After 3 months on a diet, Lisa had lost 12% of her original weight. She lost 21 pounds. What was Lisa's original weight?
what's the easiest and fastest way to the synthesize AgNP?
I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
Porter
many many of nanotubes
Porter
what is the k.e before it land
Yasmin
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
Cesar
what is nanomaterials and their applications of sensors.
what is system testing?
AMJAD
preparation of nanomaterial
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
good afternoon madam
AMJAD
what is system testing
AMJAD
what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field .
1Electronicsmanufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc
2Helth and MedicalNanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc
3 Atomobile MEMS, Coating on car etc.
and may other field for details you can check at Google
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change .
maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
