ACS on Campus is attending the 255th ACS National Meeting & Exposition! Join us in the ACS booth theater on Monday, March 19 and Tuesday, March 20 for presentations on how to get published with the ACS editors, exploring careers outside the lab, and using SciFInder to search for jobs. First 20 participants will receive an ACS on Campus swag bag! No registration is required. Take a break at ACS National Meeting and join us for a professional development session in the ACS booth!
ACS on Campus: How to Get Published with the ACS Editors
Get essential tips for getting your research published with ACS Editors Prof. Paul Mulvaney, Associate Editor of ACS Nano and Prof. Pete Licence, Associate Editor of ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering. You’ll learn how to prepare a strong manuscript, choose the best journal for your research, and prepare a cover letter that will get the attention of the ACS editors.
ACS On Campus: Beyond the Bench – Careers Outside the Lab
There are a lot of career paths available to chemists that reside outside the lab. Narrowing down these options can be a real challenge. In this presentation, we’ll delve into tools and resources that will help you discover which areas are best suited to your interests and expertise, whether that is in industry, academia, government, or non-profits.
ACS on Campus: Searching for Jobs with SciFinder
You have used SciFinder to research literature and patents but have you ever considered using SciFinder to help you research a potential company, prepare for an interview, or determine a graduate school that might be a good fit? Come learn how to use SciFinder to set yourself apart from the competition by being the most prepared and well-researched candidate.
The ACS Booth Theater #637 is located in the exhibit hall of the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

Pete Licence, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, ACS Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering
Professor in Chemistry at the University of Nottingham; Inaugural Director of the GSK Carbon Neutral Laboratories for Sustainable Chemistry
Pete Licence is Professor in Chemistry at the University of Nottingham where he is also inaugural Director of the GSK Carbon Neutral Laboratories for Sustainable Chemistry, a new-build facility focused on the delivery of sustainable chemistry solutions for the fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals sectors. A synthetic organic chemist by training, Licence offers experience in the design and preparation of ultra-high purity functionalised ionic liquids that are bespoke for a specific task. The key driver that underpins much of Licence’s research is the development of an in-depth knowledge of interactions and processes at interfaces and discontinuities. Interfaces are crucial regions in most processes spanning extraction, catalysis and small molecule sensing. Licence is Adjunct Professor in Chemistry at Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia, Co-Director of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Chemistry (CDT-SusChem) and Co-I of the BBSRC/EPSRC Multidisciplinary Synthetic Biology Research Centre (SBRC-Nottingham). Pete is author of > 120 peer-reviewed articles in the field of Green and Sustainable Chemistry (h = 35), a founding presenter in the acclaimed YouTube channel PeriodicVideos.com and Associate Editor of the American Chemical Society journal; ACS Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering. www.nottingham.ac.uk/ionicliquids www.periodicvideos.com
Paul Mulvaney, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, ACS Nano
Professor of Chemistry, School of Chemistry, University of Melbourne
Paul Mulvaney is currently Professor of Chemistry in the School of Chemistry at the University of Melbourne and a “1000 Talents Professor” at Chongqing Institute for Green and Intelligent Technology, China. Mulvaney serves as an Associate Editor of the journal ACS Nano. He was Chair of the RACI Colloid Chemistry Division from 2009-2011 and a founding member of ACIS, the Australasian Colloid and Interface Society in 2013. From 2014-2016 he chaired the National Committee for Chemistry under the Australian Academy of Science and led the group that created the first Decadal Plan for Chemistry. His recent research work, funded through the ARC Laureate Fellowship program (2011-2015) focussed on plasmonics – the optical properties of small metal colloid particles. He has published more than 270 research articles with an average of >100 citations per paper. His current role is Director of the new, 7-year ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science.
