সবাইকে স্বাগতম। এই পোস্টে আমি নিয়মিত এসিস্ট্যান্টশিপের নিউজ আপডেট করতে থাকবো। যেহেতু আমি বনবিদ্যা, পরিবেশ বিজ্ঞান, পরিবেশ অর্থনীতির ওপর গবেষণা করছি, তাই আমি এই বিষয়গুলোর বেশ কিছু গ্রুপের সাথে যুক্ত। সেখানে প্রায়ই বিভিন্ন এসিস্ট্যান্টশিপের খবর আসে। এতদিন আমি নেক্সটপের ফেসবুক পেইজে সেগুলো পোস্ট করতাম। কিন্তু সেগুলো সহজেই হারিয়ে যায়, টাইমলাইনে হাজার হাজার পোস্টের ভিড়ে চাপা পড়ে যায়। তাই ঠিক করেছি, সব এখানেই তুলে রাখবো যাতে আগ্রহী ছাত্ররা সহজেই খুঁজে পায়। এছাড়াও অন্যান্য বিষয়ের ওপর যে যেখান থেকেই এসিস্ট্যান্টশিপের খবর পাবেন, এই পোস্টে কমেন্ট করলে আমি সেটাকেও যুক্ত করে দেবো।
কীভাবে সহজে আপনার বিষয়ের ওপর এসিস্ট্যান্টশিপের খবর খুঁজে পাবেন? একদম সহজ! আমি নিচে সবই ইংরেজিতে টুকে রেখেছি, যাতে আপনি ব্রাউজারের FIND অপশন ইউজ করে (ctrl+F) কীওয়ার্ড সার্চ করতে পারেন। নতুন যত বিজ্ঞপ্তি আসবে, সেগুলোকে ওপরের দিকে যুক্ত করা হবে। সুবিধার জন্য প্রত্যেকটা নিউজের গায়ে নম্বর যুক্ত করা হয়েছে।
