About

ACS on Campus, the American Chemical Society’s premier outreach program, is coming to University of Alabama for a half-day event around science communication, publishing tips, and career talks! Don’t miss out on our exciting career panel on jobs beyond the bench. You’ll learn how to choose the best journal for your research, become a master of social media, and much more! You’ll also get an inside look at ACS resources that will help advance your career. 

The program is FREE and open to all students and researchers studying the sciences – not just chemistry. The event is free but registration is highly recommended.
