  • Deadline Extended to 12/15/2015 for Special Issue on Sustainable Manufacturing

    We are pleased to inform that the deadline for the Special Issue on Sustainable Manufacturing of ASME JMSE has been extended to December 15th, 2015. The CFP with the updated deadline can be found in the attachment. 


    ASME is pleased to announce its second Advanced Manufacturing Fellowship opportunity at America Makes, located in Youngstown, Ohio. America Makes was created in August 2012 to help the United States grow capabilities and strength in Additive Manufacturing by facilitating collaboration among leaders from business, academia, non-profit organizations and government agencies and focusing on areas that include design, materials, technology, and workforce development.

    The ASME Fellow will provide leadership and support in one of the key pillars of America Makes- Workforce and Educational Outreach. Specifically, the fellow will:

    • Help to strategize, prioritize and coordinate the development education/ training programs and resources to accelerate Additive Manufacturing implementation.
    • Serve as a liaison with internal and external partners, including policymakers, to help America Makes enhance its network of education and workforce development solution providers.
    • Provide scientific, technical, curricular and intellectual leadership, and analytical support contributing to the advancement of the Institute's goals, particularly as they apply to workforce development and educational outreach.
    • Organize and curate education resources and update online interface that is used by members and attracts new members to America Makes.

    ASME will provide a stipend of $60,000 for this one year Fellowship, which will start in mid- to late 2016. No additional funding will be provided by ASME. All Fellowship Applicants must be a U.S. citizen and an ASME member at the time of application. The application deadline is January 31, 2016.
