Editor’s note: Every week we ship an email newsletter featuring the region’s most exciting career opportunities. We’ve lovingly called it This Week in Jobs (aka TWIJ — “twidge”). Below is this week’s edition. Here’s the last one we published; it’s meant to live in your inbox. Sign up for the newsletter here.

Kid-friendly zone

Before we (*jazz hands*) dazzle you with this week’s shiny array of tech jobs, here’s a bit of content that everyone, no matter who they are or what they believe in, can enjoy: dogs making babies laugh hysterically.

Well, everyone except for cats.

The News

Seventy years after developing the polio vaccine, doctors at the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Vaccine Research are building on the work of their predecessors to produce a vaccine for COVID-19. This is the first installment of our yearlong reporting series underwritten by the Pittsburgh Innovation District, so stay tuned for more in-depth articles in the coming months. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg for what Pittsburgh’s got going on …

… Because weighing in at zero pounds and no ounces, we are thrilled to introduce our newest TWIJ baby: TWIJ Pittsburgh. The city of bridges has quickly become a hot spot for research, technology and innovation with so many opportunities for technologists, entrepreneurs and innovation companies, we decided it needed its very own newsletter. And that, kids, is how babies are made.

Artificial intelligence is about to get real at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. With a $5 million donation from married Wharton MBA grads, funding will go towards expanding AI courses, establishing a speaker series and encouraging more student engagement in clubs, events and committees.
