The Faculty of Science held a teaching and learning retreat to give faculty, sessional instructors and contractual employees the chance to talk about their discipline and relate some of their best teaching experiences, while sharing tips and tricks.
Joshua Lehr and Alicia Morry are Memorial’s 2016 Killam Fellows.
Mr. Lehr, a third-year science student majoring in behavioural neuroscience and mathematics, has spent the winter semester at the University of Texas in Austin. Ms. Morry, a fourth-year student currently working on two degrees, a bachelor of science in earth sciences and a bachelor of arts (hons.) in archaeology, has just begun a semester at the University of Washington.
Nicholas Brown is a creative and critical thinker, an explorer and an adventurer, and is someone who persistently seeks the answers to questions that interest him in his field of study.
He is also the recipient of the inaugural Memorial University Award for Outstanding Self-directed Learning.
Chelsea Bishop’s first few years at Memorial were tough ones.
The St. John’s resident was certain a biology degree was for her. But she struggled with classes and her grades were slipping, until she reached out for help.
Department of Ocean Sciences
Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Physiological Ecology of Marine Organisms
The Department of Ocean Sciences of Memorial University (http://www.mun.ca/osc/) invites applications for a tenure track Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Marine Physiological Ecology that will align with the mandate of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council. Although all aspects of physiological ecology will be considered, we are particularly interested in candidates with a strong background in: the effects of anthropogenic disturbances and variations in habitat quality on marine organism condition, health and survival; those that evaluate stress responsiveness and environmental tolerances relative to environmental change; and/or, researchers that study the ecology and evolution of physiological diversity and its relevance to conservation.
