John and Kathryn Umbarger Establish Fund to Advance Undergraduate Research in Physics

A love of Michigan Tech led C. John ’64 and Kathryn O. Umbarger to create the C. John and Kathryn Umbarger Physics Fund at Michigan Technological University. The annual fund provides financial support to Michigan Tech’s Department of Physics undergraduate and graduate student projects and research. The Umbargers seeded the fund with a major gift to the Michigan Tech Fund.

“Thanks to my Michigan Tech education, I was fortunate enough to meet the love of my life, embark on a terrific career, and start and nurture a terrific family,” John said. “Both Kathy and I have been blessed. We have a sound financial footing, and we want to help Michigan Tech students embark on a similar journey. We hope and encourage other Tech graduates to consider doing the same.”

Read more about the Umbargers’ journey and how the gift benefits the physics department on the Physics Newsblog.

ACMAL Planting the Seeds of Research

Are you a tenured, tenure-track or research faculty; postdoctoral researcher; or Michigan Tech staff member?

Are you planning to seek funds for research elsewhere, but require start-up money to develop your proposal?

If so, you are eligible to apply for Seedling Research Funding opportunities of up to $1,000.

The Applied Chemical and Morphological Analysis Laboratory (ACMAL) at Michigan Tech has set aside $4,000 to fund pre-proposal research. These funds are designed to be granted to those who need to do preliminary investigations and data collection, in ACMAL, which will then be used to develop a proposal for research funding from another source.

Proposals will be accepted from Michigan Tech tenured, tenure-track and research faculty; postdoctoral researchers; and staff.

Awards will be reviewed and funded on a rolling basis while funds are available. Proposals should be less than $1,000, The funds must be spent in the awarding facility, and may be used for either tool and/or staff time. A separate index will not be provided. The facility will fund use-fees and staff time up to the award amount out of a facility managed index.

Applicants are encouraged to pursue matching funds from their affiliated centers, institutes and/or departments to enhance their research effort. ACMAL staff will be available to assist in interactions with centers, institutes and departments.

Merit Criteria
Proposals will be reviewed and awarded by ACMAL leadership based on the following criteria:

  • Proposal is of interest to external sponsors or funding programs.
  • Demonstrates high probability of leading to externally funded research.
  • Proposal demonstrates sound scientific merit.
  • Proposal is well-written and organized.
  • Proposal budget is realistic based on the proposed work to be performed.

Questions will be addressed by emailing

BioSci Seminar with Bernard Kim

Bernard Kim will present as part of the Department of Biological Sciences (BioSci) Seminar Series from 3-4 p.m. tomorrow (March 16). The seminar will be held virtually via Zoom (use passcode 046347).

Kim is a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University in the Department of Biology. He will present "Clade-scale genomics for precise inference of natural selection in the fly Family Drosophilidae."

From the abstract:
In a large collaborative effort with many members of the fly community, we are working to systematically and comprehensively sequence most of the >4,400 species of the model family Drosophilidae. In addition to building new genomes, we are generating population-genomic data by sequencing both inbred laboratory lines and individual flies collected from the wild. This will be a powerful genomic resource for the scientific community, enabling genomic analyses at unprecedented resolution through the saturation of both substitution and population-genomic data at nearly every possible nucleotide site. In my presentation, I will show how this saturation regime allows us to confidently identify signatures of natural selection on new mutations at the resolution of single genes or even protein domains, to detect both parallel evolutionary forces and systematic shifts in natural selection between drosophilid species groups, and to characterize selection acting on specific Drosophila tissues or cell types. This work is the first step in building a clade-scale genomic toolkit for dissecting signatures of evolution on individual genes, through the fly body, and across macro-evolutionary time.

CTL Technical Workshop: Canvas Grading and Gradebook

Annual Steam Shutdown

The annual steam shutdown will take place during the week following Spring Commencement, from April 30 through May 5 (weather permitting).

This outage is required to provide maintenance and service of the boilers and steam distribution system on campus. This planned maintenance improves the reliability of our system and reduces the likelihood of an unplanned failure during the winter heating season.

Note: There will not be heat or hot water in the affected buildings during the steam shutdown. There will be no distilled water available from the steam-driven stills. Steam-driven autoclaves/sterilizers will not be operational.

Annual steam shutdown dates/times:

  • Begins: Sunday, April 30, at noon
  • Ends: Friday, May 5, at noon

Buildings affected:

Annual Power Outage

Facilities Management has developed a five-year rotating plan to service the 12,470-volt switchgear and associated breakers on campus. Our campus electrical distribution system depends on this gear being in good working condition.

This work requires a two-night power outage that affects the least number of buildings possible. Please note that in most cases elevators, fume hoods, exhaust fans, ventilation equipment, normal lighting, plug-in appliances, and plug-in equipment will not operate during the outage. Only items connected to the building emergency generator will have power during the outage; the building emergency generators and battery systems that supply power to emergency/egress lighting and special equipment should function as normal. If you are unsure if your equipment connects to the building emergency generator, please contact the Facilities Management Building Mechanic for your building.

Information Technology will be turning off all network equipment in the affected buildings for these outages starting at 5 p.m. You should plan to save any work and shut down your computer systems and exit buildings before the outages. Additionally, some buildings with power will be without phone or internet service.

Only the buildings listed will have their power shut off during the scheduled outages.

There will be two power outages:

Power Outage One

  • Begins: Wednesday, May 3, at 6 p.m.
  • Ends: Thursday, May 4, at 6 a.m.

Power Outage Two

  • Begins: Thursday, May 4, at 6 p.m.
  • Ends: Friday, May 5, at 6 a.m.

Buildings without power:

Administration Building
Chemical Sciences and Engineering Building
J. R. Van Pelt and John and Ruanne Opie Library
Memorial Union Building
Student Development Complex
John MacInnes Student Ice Arena
Advanced Technology Development Complex
Kearly Stadium
Gates Tennis Center

Buildings with power but no phone or internet:

Harold Meese Center
Central Heating Plant
