Postings looking for Honors College researchers

The Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS)

ABRCMS is one of the nation’s largest STEM conferences for underrepresented minority students. Over the four days, more than 2,000 students present their research, explore over 380 exhibit booths, participate in cutting-edge scientific sessions and network with faculty and peers from across the nation. Research faculty provide the students with valuable feedback by serving as presentation judges and play an essential role in mentoring students and learning strategies for facilitating student success.

Submit an abstract! Undergraduate students are invited to showcase their research by submitting abstracts for presentation. The abstract submission deadline is September 7th

Apply for travel funds! Travel funds are available to eligible undergraduates who submit an abstract for poster or oral presentation. The deadline to apply for a travel award is August 22nd

Note: Travel funding may also be available from CofC’s INBRE program.

Research Participants Needed for Exercise Science Study

The Effect of External Trunk Perturbations on Lower Extremity Landing Biomechanics

Dr. Kate Pfile and two Exercise Science students (Elizabeth King and Ana Miletich) are conducting research this summer on the effect of external trunk perturbations on lower extremity landing biomechanics.

What to expect:
We will hook you up to a full body marker set (as seen in the flyer photo), this marker set will record body movements and will give us data on how your body reacts to external perturbations (slight pull in one direction or another) while you jump off a 30 cm (12 in) step. Data collection takes places at the Locomotion Energetics and Assessment Lab at MUSC and lasts about 90 minutes. All participants receive a CofC-themed prize of their choice (valued at $15-20), such as a water bottle, pint glass, mug, etc!

Inclusion Criteria:
– Between ages 18-44
– At least 3 years experience in a jumping/landing intensive sport (soccer, basketball, volleyball, dance, etc…)
– Participate in at least 90 minutes of moderate physical activity/week
– No previous lower extremity surgery or history of lower extremity injury in the past 6 months
If you are unsure if you’re qualified to participate, reach out to us anyways!

If interested, please email CofCResearchStudy@gmail.com for more information! Thank you!

The German Chancellor Fellowship allows seniors, recent graduates, and graduate students to spend one year conducting a project of their design with the host of their choice in Germany. The project can be in any field, but should be research-based and create a positive long-term impact. Benefits include full financial support, a language course, and a study tour culminating with meeting Chancellor Angela Merkel. More information on the German Chancellor Fellowship and the online application is available here

Although applications are not due until September 15, 2018,  applicants are encouraged to begin drafting project proposals and securing host affiliations early. Questions regarding this opportunity can be sent to Alexandra Hoenscheid, Program Coordinator for American Friends of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation at info@americanfriends-of-avh.org.
