My colleagues Tanya Myers and Alla Zelenyuk here at PNNL wanted to reach out to you all to see whether you might be aware of any recent or soon-to-be PhD grads who would be eligible for this posting to work with us here at PNNL doing some pretty cool science on an upcoming IARPA project.

The posting closes on Nov 9:  We are looking for someone with background in mass spec and/or IR spectroscopy to study aerosols using state-of-the-art instrumentation in both mass spec and IR spectroscopy, as well as working with many top-notch scientists in the field.  The position will likely result in several publications.  However, the position requires US Citizenship, which is a firm requirement.    

Please share this job ad with folks you know who might be eligible, or if you’re aware of any useful job ad where we should post this, that’d be helpful as well.   

Thanks so much!

A recording of the Sept. 28, 2022, webinar to educate stakeholders on the Green Chemistry Challenge Awards’ nomination process is now available. This webinar, hosted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), reviewed the history of the awards, eligibility requirements, and what is needed to submit a nomination. The webinar also reviewed the six award categories including a category to recognize technology that reduces or eliminates greenhouse gas emissions, in support of the Biden-Harris Administration’s efforts to combat the climate crisis.  

EPA is currently accepting nominations for the 2023 Green Chemistry Challenge Awards from companies or institutions that have developed a new green chemistry process or product that helps protect human health and the environment. Nominations are due to the agency by Dec. 9, 2022. 

An independent panel of technical experts convened by the American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute will formally judge the nominations and make recommendations to EPA for the 2023 winners. EPA anticipates giving awards to outstanding green chemistry technologies in six categories in the Fall of 2023.
