About

ACS on Campus is excited to host a special event in Boston at the UMASS Club. We welcome all students and early career researchers studying chemistry and the applied sciences in the Boston area to join us for a FREE program on April 12 featuring the ACS editors and local professionals in Boston.

Start the day with breakfast and networking with students from across the city. Programming features the career panel “Beyond the Bench,” where you’ll hear from professionals working outside the lab, and a demonstration on how to use SciFinder in your job search – it’s not just for researching literature and patents! You’ll also get tips from the ACS Editors on preparing a manuscript and how to master the peer review process.

Space is limited! Register now and reserve your spot at ACS on Campus! 

Are you an ACS member? Are you a member of an ACS Student Chapter? Join us for an exclusive networking event just for ACS and student chapter members at 5:30 pm, April 11 in the Highball Lounge. Meet other ACS members in the city and participate in networking games.

Not an ACS member? Want to join the fun? Sign up for ACS membership before April 6 to receive an invitation to the ACS member networking happy hour. Did we mention first-time members get 50% off their membership? Sign me up!
