10/9/2018 10:30:41 AM CPLC Staff

If you would like to update your photo on the CPLC website, please attend one of the Physics Department portrait sessions today or tomorrow. You do not need to be a Physics graduate student/postdoc to use this portrait service.

See the following message from Siv Schwink in Physics:

Dear Physics faculty, staff, postdocs, grad students, and visiting researchers,
If we don’t have a portrait of you in our directory or if the one we have needs updating, please come to this term’s drop-in portrait session in MRL 208 on October 9 and 10 (note hours below . Bill Wiegand is an excellent photographer AND a sitting takes only 10 minutes or so. 
Aside from the digital directory, current portraits are nice to have on hand for news stories. Because the department doesn’t exercise its copyright on these images, you are welcome to use your portrait whenever you are asked for a headshot. I will automatically share your portraits with you by email in full resolution about 4 to 6 weeks after the drop-in sessions.
Drop-in Portrait Sessions
Room 208 MRL
Tuesday, October 9
1 to 4 p.m.
Wednesday, October 10
9 a.m. to noon
Thanks in advance for your participation!

Product Management Intern
Product is responsible for defining and driving the product strategy and road map in each market in which we operate. Product Management intern responsibilities have a broad span: from customer experience to validating complex risk management structures with the Math and Agronomy teams to working with Engineering to develop our products so that they are powerful and easy-to-use.

Example projects might include:

  1. Develop an improved user experience for clients to find and select the fields where they farm -- a critical part of our application. This project would involve both deep exploration of how we can help our clients save time by integrating our system with existing data sources (for example, Precision Agriculture data or field shapefiles) and exploration of user experience improvements.
  2. Design and prototype a suite of decision tools to help farmers determine the best balance of Total Weather Insurance and Federal Crop Insurance for their operation
  3. Brainstorm and prototype a creative tool that leverages our proprietary data and technology to help farmer’s better understand the weather and manage their operation
