ChemPAL Grad Student Research Panel! | Tues 6/5

Hi everyone,

 ChemPAL invites you to its Grad Student Research Panel next Tues 6/5 at 5:30-7pm in NSB Auditorium

At the event, you will hear short talks from grad students about their research and how/why they decided to pursue it and grad school. You will also have time to ask your own questions about research, grad school, and more! 

 This is a great chance to see what research entails, check out some of the many areas of chemistry research, and learn how to get started. It is also an excellent opportunity if you are already involved in undergrad research and considering grad school.

Email chempal@ucsd.edu and check out our website (chempal.ucsd.edu) if you have any questions or want additional information!

2018 NSF-funded REU Program in Chemistry at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville

It is our pleasure to inform you of the 2018 NSF-funded REU Program in Chemistry at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. This program offers a 10-week intensive research experience spanning the field of chemistry. While research opportunities across all traditional chemistry disciplines are available, the focus of our REU site is on the development of advanced materials for energy and sensing applications.

In addition to the research experience, participants in our REU program will engage in a range of activities designed to develop complementary skills that are beneficial for success in graduate school and scientific research careers. These include professional development programs such as enhancing presentation and writing skills as well as site visits to local research institutions including Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Eastman Chemical. REU students will receive a $5,000 stipend for the 10-week program, free housing on campus and up to $500 of reimbursement on eligible costs for travel to and from Knoxville.

We would greatly appreciate any help you could provide in encouraging students to apply to this program. Further information as well as the online application for the program can be found at the website below.

Application deadline: February 1st, 2018
