    The University of California Washington Program (UCDC) is seeking qualified candidates for its adjunct instructor pool. UCDC is an academic program of the U. of California that provides courses and internship opportunities for junior and senior undergraduates. Students take at least one class and intern in organizations and institutions that include the federal government, advocacy groups, international organizations, media, science agencies, museums and the arts, and more.

    UCDC requires that all instructors be able to teach basic social science, history, or policy research skills and include in their syllabi expository writing assignments. They offer 10-week quarter and 14-week semester courses. Appointments are usually for a single quarter or semester term.

    From the Consortium of Social Science Associations (COSSA) with a deadline of July 13, 2023.

    The National Science Foundation (NSF) is seeking public input into the development of a roadmap for the newly created Directorate for Technology, Innovation, and Partnerships (TIP). The roadmap will guide the TIP Directorate’s activities and directions for the next three years, and COSSA needs your input to help ensure that insights from social and behavioral science research are included—if not prioritized—in efforts to shape the future of U.S. technology development and deployment.

    COSSA will be submitting comments to NSF on behalf of the research community before the deadline. We want to hear from you. Comments and ideas for the roadmap should be sent to COSSA by July 13 in order to be considered as part of our submission. We welcome any and all contributions that you think help tell the story of why social and behavioral science must be part of TIP activities. Read on to find out the questions posed by NSF and how you can contribute.

    You may notice that the DCSS website has a totally new look. More than just a change of colors and layout, the new website is part of an integrated association management software platform that will enable us to do a much better job of communicating with member and non-member sociologists in the DMV. The new website combines membership processing, events, and communication in a single platform. Look for more information on these new functions coming soon!
