This seminar series will occur in a virtual Zoom room on the fourth Thursday of each month starting in January 2021. The seminars will start at alternating times: 11AM ET and 4PM ET to allow members in Europe and Asia to join. A recording of the seminar will be available on the AChemS website for all participants to view for up to 30 days. In addition to live seminars, ACHEMS MEMBERS may view any past seminar recording for no charge through their membership accounts. Each talk will be approximately 20 minutes, leaving time for 10 minutes of questions. There will be two talks per seminar: one from a senior and one from a junior researcher.
Junior investigators will receive an award that includes a monetary prize of $500 generously sponsored by Firmenich, the world’s largest privately-owned fragrance and taste company. Attendees to the Seminar Series can request a certificate of attendance detailing the sessions that they partake in.
Nomination or self-nomination from AChemS members are welcome. Waiver requests to the membership fees are considered on an individual basis and should not represent the only factor not to apply. Please complete the application form and include a C.V., a paragraph summary of current and future research plans and a brief description of the presentation topic (120 words).
The Mentoring and Networking Committee will make a decision on applications beginning in mid January and notify speakers.
Please address any questions to: Dr. Valentina Parma, Mentoring and Networking Committee Program Chair
