On-Campus Jobs Expo Today

Career Services is hosting an on-campus jobs expo today (Aug. 29) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Alumni Lounge in the MUB. Students are encouraged to come check out the job opportunities available right here on campus. Many departments will be represented.

On-campus jobs provide opportunities for Michigan Tech students. A part-time job offers income to students who need it and is an important co-curricular opportunity. As a co-curricular opportunity, on-campus work can lead to internships and co-ops, opening the door to full-time offers immediately after graduation. It can also help a student establish a strong foundation for research that leads to enhanced graduate school opportunities.

If your department has not signed up and would like to attend, please contact Jill Patterson at It may not be too late.

In Print

A research team from the Department of Chemistry including Ph.D. students Dilka Liyana Arachchige, Adenike Mary Olowolagba and Mohamed Mahmoud; Research Scientist Sushil K. Dwivedi; undergraduate students Sophia Jaeger, Daniel R. Tucker and Delaney Raine Fritz; and Professor Thomas Werner (BioSci), Associate Professors Marina Tanasova and Rudy L. Luck (Chem), and Professor Haiying Liu (Chem) collaborated to publish a significant paper in ACS Applied Bio Materials.

The paper is titled "Highly Sensitive Cyanine Dyes for Rapid Sensing of NAD(P)H in Mitochondria and First-Instar Larvae of Drosophila melanogaster."

This groundbreaking research was made possible by the generous funding extended by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health, under the auspices of Award Numbers R15GM114751 (H. Liu), 2R15GM114751-02 (H. Liu), and R15 GM146206-01 (H. Liu and R. Luck).

Moreover, the invaluable backing from the National Science Foundation, granted under the identifier 2117318 with H. Liu as one of the co-principal investigators (co-PIs), played a pivotal role in the acquisition of a new nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer. This strategic enhancement allowed for the meticulous characterization of the fluorescent probes utilized in the study, significantly amplifying the research's analytical depth.

This collaborative effort stands as a testament to the remarkable achievements attainable through synergistic academic collaboration and visionary financial support.

HOWL for Huskies: Effort to Help Students Find Housing for Fall Continues

With the school year underway, demand for housing for our returning students remains high. We invite students, staff, faculty and community members to help out our beloved Huskies who have not secured housing for the fall term.

The HOWL for Huskies (Helping Out With Living) platform allows Tech employees and community members who have housing available to post information so that interested students can connect with them. It's also a way for students to connect with other students seeking housing or roommates.

To learn more, check out our HOWL for Huskies website

We are doing everything we can to support our Huskies and look forward to seeing this incredible MTU community come together to help students who are still seeking housing options for the fall 2023 semester. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at
