Congratulations to all our great students!
Our department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology has openings for a teaching professor and a visiting teaching professor.
Could you please help spread the word to your networks and encourage all promising candidates to apply?
The primary responsibility involves teaching up to five sections per year of general, organic, and/or physical chemistry and related courses for life or physical sciences or engineering students at the undergraduate level. Specific courses will depend on departmental need and on the candidate’s area of specialty. Applications received by July 1 will receive full consideration for all positions.
The Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology (“CCB”) (https://cos.northeastern.edu/chemistry-chemical-biology/) includes 27 tenured/tenure-track faculty; nine full-time teaching faculty; four research faculty; and eight faculty with affiliated appointments. CCB was recognized as the most gender diverse faculty among the top 50 US Chemistry Departments in 2019. CCB enrolls approximately 150 undergraduate majors; 27 M.S. and PlusOne (BS/MS) students; and 80 Ph.D. students.
In the Northeastern University College of Science, we embrace a culture of respect, where each person is valued for their contribution and is treated fairly. We oppose all forms of racism. We support a culture that does not tolerate any form of discrimination and where each person may belong. As a College, we strive to have a diverse membership, one where each person is trained and mentored to promote their success.
The Department of Chemistry at Lewis & Clark College is looking to hire adjunct faculty to teach General Chemistry laboratories for the Fall 2021 semester, which begins August 30. In particular, we invite applicants who are available during the following times:
· Monday, 6:30 – 9:30 pm
· Tuesday, 9:10 am – 12:10 pm

· Thursday, 1 – 4 pm
The lab sections are capped at 24 students each and will meet fully in-person. There is a set curriculum for the lab with support provided by the department via a weekly staff meeting. Adjunct instructors are responsible for preparing for and facilitating the lab experience, grading, student feedback, and availability to students for one office hour per week per lab section.
To apply, please send a resume and cover letter to Barb Balko at email@example.com.
The Office of URSA is excited to announce that registration for OSU’s 2021 Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium (SURS) is now open! The virtual event will take place September 13th and 14th. Please help us to increase participation by forwarding this message to your colleagues and students!
- The deadline for students to register to present at SURS is August 9th at 11:59 PM. They can apply here.
- OSU community members can RSVP here to attend SURS 2021 on September 13th and 14th.
SURS is an annual showcase for OSU undergraduates to present their research and creative projects to the OSU community. Undergraduates from all academic disciplines, in all years of study, and all stages of research or creative work are invited to present. SURS will take the form of a virtual symposium this year.
Each presenter will record a 3-minute lightning talk about their work and post it on a central Canvas page where the symposium will be hosted. The Canvas page will be distributed to OSU community members who will be able to view presenters’ recordings, ask questions, and engage in dialogue via the Canvas discussion board function. In addition, several students will be selected to give live, 10-minute plenary talks via Zoom during the course of the event. More details can be found here.
Please mark your calendars to join us for this exciting opportunity!
We appreciate your help forwarding this email to others. Please mark your calendars to join us for this exciting opportunity to support our amazing undergraduate student researchers!
Aaron Wimsatt (ChemStores Student Worker) has graduated (Chemical Engineering). Friday (6/11) was his last day. To send him off, Chemstores held a surprise gathering. ChemStores supervisor, Rusty Root took the opportunity to reward the staff for a fantastic year and all their hard work in keeping the University stocked during COVID by presenting them each a Hawaiian Shirt.
They are also looking for 1-2 UGs for this summer to help with their ceramic-coated separator production process.
The job would involve both running a prototype production line, formulation development, materials characterization, and working with our R&D team members.
UGs need to have lab experience and be very detail oriented. The lithium-ion separator business is very demanding in terms of precision & quality !
Attached a brochure to give them some idea of what they would be working on.
Any interested students should send their resume to the HR manager, Erin Hart, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Purdue University Graduate Student Symposium Planning Committee (GSSPC) is excited to support student attendance at the Spring 2022 ACS National Meeting by providing travel grants. Our symposium, “Mother (Nature) Knows Best: Bonding with Nature’s Proteins”, will highlight innovative research in protein chemistry from a diverse group of distinguished speakers. Travel grant recipients will be expected to attend the day-long symposium while in attendance at the Spring 2022 ACS National Meeting in San Diego.
Applications are now open and will close November 15th, 2021 at 11:59 PM EST. The application can be found at https://www.chem.purdue.edu/gsspc2022/travel-application.html. Grants will be in the form of reimbursements up to $500 to undergraduate or graduate students in chemistry or related fields. The number of grants awarded will be dependent on funding available to the GSSPC. Chosen awardees will be notified by mid-December.
