Book Distribution Assistant
Race, Genetics, and Science: Resisting Racism in the 1930s is a collection of writings by Hugo Iltis, renowned biographer of the father of genetics, Gregor Mendel (1924, English trans. 1932). Writing in the 1930s, at the height of Nazi Germany’s rise to power, Iltis used his extensive knowledge of Mendelian genetics to dismantle the “intellectual poison gas” being disseminated by Nazi theorists. His courage in standing up to the false science used to justify torture and death inflicted on people of Jewish ancestry caught the attention of none other than Albert Einstein. Einstein assisted in arranging Iltis’s escape from Brno, Czechoslovakia three months before the Nazi takeover of the country in March of 1939.
Two CNR undergraduate students assisted in preparing the book for publication by Masaryk University Press in Brno, Czech Republic. We would now like the assistance of another CNR undergrad in distributing 100 copies of the book to university and private libraries in the United States. We will pay $15/hour for someone to prepare ca. 100
mailing labels and envelopes (using a previously prepared label format) and to stuff the books and a prepared letter into mailing envelopes and attach the labels for mailing.
Application Details: Please contact Carolyn Merchant, merchant@berkeley.
Lawrence Hall of Science’s Future Ready Scholars Program: Residential Advisors
The University of California at Berkeley Graduate School of Education (GSE) is developing and piloting Future Ready Labs (FRL), a program aimed at increasing opportunity for first-generation students of color from the Central Valley. FRL will be conducted during the summer of 2019. Selected students will live on the UC Berkeley Campus for a three-week term beginning June 17, 2019, through July 5, 2019. Educators from the Lawrence Hall of Science will develop and administer the curriculum for the academic portion of the program.
In order to create a transformational experience, GSE would like to create wrap-around programing outside of the classroom to amplify the students’ experiences and learning opportunities with residential programing.
With SMASH having over 16 years of experience providing residential programming to students from underserved communities, we are excited to announce our partnership with GSE to leverage our experience to design and execute the Future Ready Labs residential program.
The Head Residential Advisor (HRA) supports the Residential Director (RD) to oversee the residential and youth enrichment components of FRL. The HRA leads a team of Residential Advisors (RAs) and is ultimately responsible for the well-being of 50 high school students living on campus. Reporting to the RD, the HRA fosters a clean, safe, positive, and inclusive environment that encourages FRL Scholars to develop their full potential. The HRA also acts as an educational leader and role model (for both students and staff), to set the culture, standards, activities, and interactions that will assure both enriching and socially just experience conducive to student success in the STEM fields. The HRA is responsible for supporting other areas of programming, including local field trips and engagement with the surrounding STEM community. Finally, the HRA is a leading authority figure in the residence hall and collaborates with the RD and additional HRAs. The HRA manages a team of up to eight (8) RAs.
It is a 4-week live-in assignment, requires 6 nights on campus once the program launches with a 6-day work week, and an average 10-hour day during the week and 15-hour work day on the weekends. Although the majority of the position will function as described below, some aspects are subject to change due to evolving program needs.
