3rd-annual UC-wide Chemistry Symposium (March 26-28, 2018) – Deadline December 15

The 3rd-annual UC-wide Chemistry Symposium (March 26-28, 2018) for grad students and postdocs is open for abstract submissions!  Abstracts are due December 15, 2017.

For $259 (which includes lodging and dining), your students and postdocs can meet other graduate students in the chemical sciences from across the UC-system, share their results, and participate in career development activities.  The conference is during UC’s spring break, so there is no conflict with teaching, TA responsibilities, or the spring ACS.  I truly hope you will encourage your group members to participate in this student-organized and run GRS-style conference.4. 2018 UCCS Flyer

To apply, please submit your CV, statement of interest, and letter of support from your PI to Professors Stacey Brydges (sbrydges@ucsd.edu) and Stanley Lo (smlo@ucsd.edu) by December 1, 2017.

Thank you,
