Call for Applications — Fall 2020 ACS GSSPC

The ACS Graduate Student Symposium Planning Committee (GSSPC) is a group of graduate students who are responsible for organizing an all-day symposium at an ACS National Meeting. We would like to invite students from the chemistry graduate program to apply to be the next Graduate Student Symposium Planning Committee.  This is an excellent opportunity for graduate students to learn how to plan and execute a symposium, as well as build connections at ACS and network with other chemists.

We are currently accepting applications for the Fall 2020 GSSPC, for the ACS National Meeting to be held in San Francisco from August 16th-20th. Below is a flyer with application instructions, which can also be found on our website (https://caice-gsspc.weebly.com/applications-for-2020.html). The application deadline is May 1st, 2019.

37th Annual Graduate Student Symposium (GSS) Deadline Extension

The 37th annual GSS is approaching May 20th-22nd, and we have just extended abstract submissions to close at midnight on April 18th. If any investigator has masters or doctoral students that would like to present a talk or poster, please direct them to our online submission form found at https://www.ubchemgss.org/abstract-submission, if they are interested make sure that they register also! This years poster competition will feature a prize of a one year membership to the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS) and a commemorative plaque and we will have numerous breaks for students to interact in between sessions.
On top of a poster and multiple oral sessions, we have the pleasure of hosting three keynote speakers this year, Dr. George L. Grobe III the Vice President of R&D for Vision Care at Bausch and Lomb, Dr. Julia Laskin of Purdue University, and Dr. Andy Borovik from the University of California-Irvine. Further information about their talks is posted on or website. I hope to see many students come and take advantage of this opportunity this year, it has always been a great event to network at and if anyone has any questions feel free to email back at chemistrybuffalogss@gmail.com.

Lerner Research Institute

Synthetic Chemists – Drug Discovery and Development

Post-doctoral opening

We are currently seeking enthusiastic, highly motivated synthetic chemists with organic synthesis experience to join Dr. Stanley Hazen’s Research group as a post-doctoral researcher that will design and synthesize small molecules for the treatment cardio-thrombotic diseases. Our research group is comprised of a large well-funded multidisciplinary team supported by both federal and corporate sources. Candidates will provide chemical synthesis expertise in the development of small molecule therapeutics, and will work with a group of physicians, basic and applied research investigators, and synthetic and analytical chemists. The primary job of the candidate will be synthesis of small molecule therapeutics, focusing on structure-activity efforts of leads for several different targets. Other duties may involve lead generation and optimization, and medicinal chemistry support services.

 

The successful candidate will have a PhD in Organic/Medicinal or synthetic chemistry. Candidates with direct experience in synthesis/medicinal chemistry and functional screening of compounds are encouraged to apply. The laboratory is housed in the Lerner Research Institute and the successful candidate will support and collaborate with multidisciplinary investigators in the research group.

 

The new recruit will also have outstanding opportunities for interactions with basic and translational researchers throughout the Lerner Research Institute.
