The Royal Society of Chemistry is hosting a Meet the Editor event just for UC San Diego, allowing graduate students, undergrads, and postdocs the chance to meet a few of the Editorial Board members, learn about their research and also about the publishing process.

9-9:45AM PTMain group Lewis acids for applications in catalysis and anion transport
Research in the Gabbaï group has been dedicated to the synthesis and study of Lewis acidic main group compounds with the development of applications in molecular recognition and catalysis as the ultimate goals.  This seminar will highlight a series of recent results obtained in pursuit of these goals.  The first part of the presentation will show how Lewis acidic boron- and antimony-based anion receptors can be deployed in aqueous media to effectively transport a range of anions across the phospholipid membrane of artificial vesicles and live cells.  The second part of the talk will focus on the chemistry of antimony- and carbon-based Z-type or Lewis acidic ligands and their demonstrated ability to modulate the catalytic reactivity of adjacent metal centers.

Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship Open for Applications

Applications are now being accepted for the Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF).

DOE CSGF provides up to four years of financial support for students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields that use high-performance computing to solve complex problems in science and engineering. The DOE CSGF is open to senior undergraduates and students in their first year of doctoral study. The program also funds doctoral candidates in applied mathematics, statistics or computer science who undertake research that will contribute to more effective use of emerging high-performance systems.

The DOE CSGF provides

  • A yearly stipend of $38,000
  • Payment of full tuition and required fees during the appointment period (at any accredited U.S. university)
  • An annual $1,000 professional development allowance
  • Up to four years of total support, depending on renewal
  • A twelve-week practicum experience at one of 21 DOE national laboratories or sites, including access to DOE supercomputers
  • A rigorous program of study that ensures fellows have solid backgrounds in a scientific or engineering discipline plus computer science and applied mathematics
  • An annual program review for fellows, alumni, university and DOE laboratory staff, held each summer in the Washington, D.C. area
  • The DOE CSGF is open to U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents who will be enrolled in or entering full-time, uninterrupted study toward a Ph.D. by the fall start of their first fellowship term. Those selected for the program must also attend an accredited U.S. university.

Applications are due January 13, 2021.
