There are many ways to get involved in the Saltman Quarterly research journal, from being a Review Board member to participating in the creation of the journal as a Staff Member.
Only biology majors and minors are eligible to hold core staff positions. Undeclared majors may participate on the Review Board until a major is declared. Core Staff members may also participate on the Review Board if they so desire.
We require individuals to reapply every year, even if they are currently on staff. However, any applicant with prior experience with SQ will be given priority assuming they successfully completed all their requirements during the previous year.
To learn more about the various positions, please read the position descriptions.
We host one General Body Meeting at the beginning of each quarter. In addition to GBMs, we host a number of different social and academic opportunities for our staff.
Each quarter, we provide an opportunity to learn about how to review scientific literature through the Review Board Workshops, which are supplemented by talks with faculty. Core staff are provided with training in their selected areas, through organized events such as Feature Writing, Technical Editing and Production Workshops.
We also hold special events which contribute to our understanding of scientific communication, appreciation for the legacy of Dr. Paul Saltman, and enrich the undergraduate experience for biology majors. Past events have included a special lecture by Laura Zahn, Associate Editor of Science, and a Geisel Library Special Collections tour, emphasizing the collected works of Dr. Saltman.
The culminating event is the annual Biological Sciences Research Showcase, which generally takes place during 10th week of Spring Quarter. Both the new issues of SQ and UTS are released at the showcase.
Gabriele Wienhausen, the Associate Dean for Eduction, hosts a quarterly social event, which usually includes dinner and an opportunity to socialize with all SQ Staff and Review Board Membrs as well as with the Staff Advisors and members of the Faculty Advisory Board.
The special events, though acadmeic in nature, also provide excellent opportunities for socializing with the other members.
We plan to continue seeking new ways for the Saltman Quarterly Program to be both an academically and socially fulfilling experience for its members.
