    Each of the five ACES regions nominate one student to serve as the ACES Graduate Student Representative (GSR). From these five nominations, the ACES Governing Council will choose one student to serve in this position. This is a three year service position: designee, current, and past GSR. The GSR must be available to attend the ACES Governing Council Meeting June 7-10, 2018 in Syracuse, NY and commit to attending all Governing Council meetings for his or her term.

    SACES is currently accepting applications from doctoral students who are early in their academic program (a graduate student serving as a GSR must hold doctoral student/doctoral candidate status for at least 2 years of their service and only the final year could be served as a new faculty member or supervisor) to be the SACES nominee. SACES will select a GSR nominee and an alternate. In the event that the SACES nominee is selected to serve as ACES GSR, the alternate will be appointed to the SACES Board for 2018-2019. In the event that the SACES nominee is not selected to serve as ACES GSR, the nominee will be appointed to the SACES Board for 2018-2019.

    To apply, please email the following materials to Casey Barrio Minton at cbarrio@utk.edu:
    • A cover letter describing your educational and other relevant experiences to the position, including your previous and/or current involvement with ACES and SACES.
    • A current CV
    • Your answer to this question (posed by ACES): “What would be different in a year service position that would show it was useful, that you were the right person to apply, and that ACES was right to have selected you?"
    Applications are due January 15, 2018.
