Chesapeake Research Consortium

Environmental Studies at SERC

ligibility and Appointment
The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center will consider applications from currently enrolled undergraduate and beginning graduate students, or students who have recently graduated from an undergraduate or Masters program. Applicants must be in a position to commit fully to the completion of a project. U.S. citizenship is not a requirement to participate in this program.

Selection is based upon the student’s academic credentials, extent of relevant training or experience, letters of recommendation, and the congruence of the student’s expressed goals with those of the internship program. The Smithsonian does not discriminate on grounds of race, creed, sex, age, marital status, handicap or national origin of any applicant.

The specific dates and duration of the internship appointment are arranged between the supervisor and the student. However, internship appointments are generally fulltime (40 hours per week), 12 to 16 weeks in length, and coincide with the usual academic semesters and summer terms.

Academic Credit
The Smithsonian awards no academic credit for studies conducted at the Institution. However, the Office of Professional Training at SERC is eager to assist in establishing mechanisms for universities to award credit upon satisfactory completion of projects. Representatives of colleges and universities wishing to develop formal agreements of this nature with the Smithsonian may contact the Office of Fellowships and Internships or SERC. In lieu of this, students are encouraged to work out arrangements directly with their advisors and departments.

Financial/Living Arrangements
Selected candidates will receive a stipend of $500.00 per week. Limited on-site dormitory space may be available for $105.00 per week. SERC does not supply board, although cooking facilities and utensils are available. The two campus dorms can accommodate up to 24 residents (Schmidt has 6 single rooms and Green Village has 8 double rooms and two single rooms). SERC is located in a semi-rural area seven miles south of the nearest public transportation lines, therefore it is strongly recommended to bring a vehicle for personal transportation, if possible.

Etiquette Tip of the Week: Between the teeth…

You can feel it. An unidentified food object stuck between your teeth. That’s the worst, isn’t it?
While your colleagues continue to discuss business over lunch, you are wrestling with your own demon. What can it be?  Parsley?  Meat fragment?  Couscous?  Never should have agreed to that fresh ground pepper on the salad!  You try to dislodge it with your tongue. Why aren’t human tongues a little more pointed or sticky like a toad’s?
If you try to remove it with your finger, a fork or the toothpick from your sandwich, your business associates will be disgusted and appalled. (Even if you cup one hand over your mouth while mining with the other, they’ll still know.)  And while your attention to dental hygiene is appreciated, don’t even think about using at the table that floss you’ve been carrying around in your purse or wallet.
What can you do?  First, take a drink of water and swish it around your mouth to try and dislodge the object. (Swish, don’t gargle.)  If that does not work, you must excuse yourself and go to the restroom, where you may use a toothpick or floss to remove it discreetly.

Etiquette Tip of the Week: Young manager, older reports…

This past week, the business and political worlds mourned the passing of Letitia Baldrige, who was once featured on the cover of Time magazine as “America’s leading arbiter of manners.”  Ms. Baldrige, who came from humble roots in Omaha, Nebraska, was White House Social Secretary to Jacqueline Kennedy, worked in American embassies overseas and wrote 21 books on etiquette that are full of humor and insights from her colorful journey through life.
This week’s Etiquette Tip is from Ms. Baldrige’s “New Complete Guide to Executive Manners” and tackles the challenge of being a younger manager with older employees reporting to him or her.  Recognizing that the older employees may feel resentment, hostility or have fears of being replaced, Ms. Baldrige advises that the younger manager set his/her style of management at the first staff meeting by doing the following:
Greet and shake hands with every employee present, asking each person his name and job.

Read carefully beforehand the employee bios, so that he can profess admiration for the impressive background and job skills of the people he or she will now manage.  He should memorize interesting tidbits about them, to prove when he meets them how well he did his homework, such as, “You’re the one with nine children, aren’t you?  Wonderful!  I’d like to see a picture of them some day.”  “You must be the one who transferred from Indianapolis.  How do you like Denver in comparison?”  “You won the company sales championship last year, didn’t you?  Great!”

Explain to his workers they really need one another in order to work as a team, to bring increased profits.

Demonstrate why he is qualified to be in the new lead position he holds.  He should talk about his background and his expertise, and how he expects to utilize it.

End with a vigorous affirmation of how pleased he is to be in the new job, how much he admires his team already in place, and how successful he knows they will all be.
