Volunteers Needed for the AIPG Booth at the SME/CMA 2019 Annual Conference & Expo
Volunteer help needed at the AIPG booth! It is a great way to network, connect with old friends, find internships and job openings, hear about new projects and services in the mining industry. Also, you can take a break from walking around the exhibit hall.
AIPG will be exhibiting at the SME/CMA Annual Conference & Expo in Denver, Colorado on February 24 - 27. 2019. AIPG Headquarters is looking for volunteers to help staff our display booth in Denver, Colorado at the Denver Convention Center. Exhibit days are as follows:
If you would like to volunteer, please sign up on the Volunteer Sheet or respond to this email. To request the 2019 SME Customer Exhibit Hall One-Day Pass, please respond to this email. (www.smeannualconference.com).
This provides us with an excellent opportunity for public outreach. It is a great chance to build our membership and talk about the benefits of AIPG.
Thank you for your assistance and support! Our volunteers helps AIPG to accomplish our goals that we could not reach without you.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Last year produced many important developments in science policy at the federal level that will shape the work of geoscientists and the applications of geoscience for society in the coming year, according to the 2018 Geoscience Policy Annual Review, published today by the American Geosciences Institute (AGI).
"2018 was an eventful year in federal geoscience policymaking. Natural hazards, energy and mineral resources, land and water, and STEM education and workforce issues were all the subject of significant debate and action," said Ben Mandler, the Program Supervisor for AGI's Geoscience Policy and Critical Issues programs. "This review summarizes the major developments in geoscience policy during 2018 and some implications for our science moving forward."
AGI encourages geoscientists to engage in the federal policy process as individuals or through their scientific or professional organizations, and it works closely with its member societies to ensure that the geosciences are strongly represented in the federal policy-making process. AGI's Geoscience Policy program tracks federal policies and publishes a Monthly Review highlighting key legislative and executive actions as they relate to the geosciences.

We are looking for members to represent AIPG at the GSA 2019 Section Meetings this spring, which are listed below. For each meeting, we will need a member to accept receipt of the booth materials before the meeting and to send them back to the National office after the meeting. Please let us know if you plan to attend a Section Meeting and can take responsibility for the booth materials before and afterward. Once we have a person to ship the materials to, we can send out a volunteer sign up sheet for meeting attendees to staff the booth.
7-19 March: GSA Northeastern Section Meeting, Portland, Maine
25-27 March: GSA Joint South-Central, North Central & Rocky Mountain Sections Meeting, Manhattan, Kansas
28-29 March: GSA Southeastern Section Meeting, Charleston, South Carolina
15-17 May: GSA Cordilleran, Portland, Oregon
Thank you - Dorothy Combs, firstname.lastname@example.org, AIPG Membership Services Coordinator
The American Geosciences Institute has been conducting the AGI’s Geoscience Student Exit Survey for the past five years. One important measure is the change of hiring by different employment sectors over the past five years for bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral graduates. In Currents #135, percent stacked area graphs for each degree level show the various sectors hiring geoscience graduates at their degree completion, as well as the change of hiring within these industries over time.
The upcoming Status of the Geoscience Workforce 2018 report, which will be released in early 2019, will have an analysis of the five-year trends from the survey.
EPWS survey on women scientists
The European Platform of Women Scientists EPWS is launching today a general survey on women scientists at the European level and we kindly invite you to participate. EPWS is representing the needs and concerns of women scientists in Europe and we wish to know what they are in 2018. The aims of this initiative are to:
This survey is intended for women scientists working in research institutions or in academia, public or private, members of an EPWS network or not. Please complete the survey before 31 December 2018 and disseminate it actively. | Read more
EFG News | Call for abstracts: geology and the energy transition
In the name of the Editorial Board of the European Geologist journal (EGJ), the Editor-in-Chief would like to invite you to submit articles for the 47th issue of the journal. The theme of this issue is geology and the energy transition and it will be published in May 2019, related to the EFG EuroWorkshop with a similar title. We expect contributions related to the topic.
Please send your article proposal first (name of the author(s), working title of the article and a short abstract of about 10 lines) by 17 December 2018 to Editor-in-Chief Eva Hartai (email@example.com) and cc staff and layout editor Anita Stein (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Editorial Board of EGJ will decide about the acceptance of the article proposals before the end of December and selected articles shall be submitted in their full version by 1 March 2019. The articles will be peer-reviewed and also reviewed by a native English speaker.
You may find the guidelines for the authors at http://eurogeologists.eu/journal/.
The State Mining and Geology Board and the Department of Conservation are accepting applications for the position of State Geologist. The California State Geologist serves as the head of the California Geological Survey (CGS), one of the largest state surveys in the nation. CGS provides scientific products and services about the state's geology, seismology, and mineral resources, including their related hazards, that affect the health, safety, and business interests of the people of California. It is one of the oldest geological surveys in the nation, and today produces more products and provides more services to more people than any other state survey.
Interested parties should submit a statement of interest and a completed Standard Form 678 (which may be supplemented by a resume) to the State Mining and Geology Board.
Final Filing Date:
Open Until Filled
Pursuant to California Public Resource Code section 677, the State Mining and Geology Board considers candidate’s qualifications and nominates candidates for potential appointment as State Geologist. The Board will accept applications on a rolling basis. Applicants for the State Geologist position who submit applications more than 15 days prior to the next Board meeting may be asked to interview with the Board at that next meeting. Board meeting dates are posted on the Board’s website here. Applicants will be notified not less than 10 days prior to a Board meeting if the Board wishes to interview them at that meeting. Interviews will be conducted in closed session. Applicants the Board believes qualified to serve as the State Geologist will be advanced for consideration of potential appointment to the State Geologist position.

The National Science Foundation’s Survey of Graduate Students and Postdoctorates in Science and Engineering is conducted annually to collect information about enrollments/hiring and demographics of graduate students (master’s and doctoral students) and postdoctoral appointees. For Currents #132, AGI’s Workforce Program analyzed the data from 2016 to investigate participation of underrepresented racial and ethnic populations in postdoctoral opportunities within the geosciences.
Outside of the representation rate of Black and African American geoscience graduate students, the representation rates of racial and ethnic underrepresented groups in the geosciences are similar to STEM-wide trends, indicating diversity issues in the geosciences are not unique.
Geoscience Currents are quick snapshots of data pertaining to all aspects of the geosciences, including trends in geoscience academic programs and students, funding of geoscience research, employment and salary information, and many other topics that support geoscience professionals and students in their career and academic endeavors. Geoscience Currents represent data collaborations with other societies, employers, and professionals. Topics for these short reports are often inspired by inquries from the geoscience community. Subscribe to the Geoscience Currents Mailing List.
If you have research related to any of the topics listed above that you would like to share with the geoscience community, please contact us about guest authoring a Geoscience Currents.
