was founded in 1996 by a group of chemistry graduate students
in response to a need for assistance in the transition between
graduate school and the workplace. It is a student run organization
whose aim is to provide forums for very specific training and
education in areas such as
- giving clear visual aid presentations,
- dynamic teaching,
- preparing for job interviews,
- how and where to gain access to important
resources in career choices,
- exploring alternative careers
for Ph.D. chemists
the events scheduled are based on an academic year running September
- June. Some events listed in the events calendar, such
as resume workshops, will be repeated for the forthcoming semesters
at the same relative time. This forum is meant to supplement,
complement and add to the already rich resources the Department
of Chemistry provides including recruitment, colloquia, special
named seminars and guest speakers/visiting scholars. To view the
type of functions planned by this club, please peruse the events
calendar from past years, which includes descriptions and pictures
from speakers, workshops, and field trips.
any and all input. Although originally intended for the pre-doctoral
candidates in the Department of Chemistry, Postdocs, associate
research scientists, junior and adjunct professors and others
have provided pearls of wisdom and we encourage any level of participation
in these forums.
