ACS on Campus is hosting a half-day program at Heidelberg University on October 11 in conjunction with the ACS Publications Forum: Scientific Diversity in Inorganic/Organic Chemistry in Europe on October 10!
Join us for a morning of professional development sessions on scholarly publishing, careers in chemistry, science communication, and much more! Network with the ACS Editors and learn how you can advance your career. Featured speakers include Prof. Bill Tolman, Editor-in-Chief of Inorganic Chemistry and Prof. Paul Chirik, Editor-in-Chief of Organometallics. The event is free and open to all researchers studying the sciences.
Interested in attending the forum and ACS on Campus? Register for both events on the ACS Publications Forum homepage: http://acspubs.co/4ZRX30kHirX. This FREE forum features lectures from world-class scientists across Europe that are conducting innovative research in inorganic and organic chemistry. Don’t miss the opportunity to share your science during the student poster session. Abstracts are now being accepted.
William B. Tolman, Ph.D.
Editor-in-Chief, Inorganic Chemistry
Chair of the Department of Chemistry, Washington University in St. Louis
William B. Tolman grew up in Chelmsford, MA, and obtained a B.S. degree from Wesleyan University, CT, in 1983, where he performed organometallic chemistry research under the direction of Alan R. Cutler. He did graduate research with K. Peter C. Vollhardt at the University of California, Berkeley, which culminated in a Ph.D. in 1987. He was then introduced to bioinorganic chemistry during a postdoctoral period, 1987–1990, in the laboratory of Stephen J. Lippard at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was appointed as Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota in 1990 and has risen through the ranks there to his current position as Distinguished McKnight University Professor. He is a member of the Centers for Metals in Biocatalysis and Sustainable Polymers and currently is serving as Chair of the Department of Chemistry.
Paul Chirik, Ph.D.
Edwards S. Sanford Professor of Chemistry, Princeton University
Paul Chirik was born in 1973 outside of Philadelphia, PA. In 1995 he earned his Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Virginia Tech. During that time, he conducted undergraduate research with Professor Joseph S. Merola studying aqueous iridium chemistry. Chirik earned his Ph. D. with Professor John Bercaw at Caltech in 2000 and was awarded the Hebert Newby McCoy award for his dissertation on metallocene catalyzed olefin polymerization. After a brief postdoctoral appointment with Professor Christopher Cummins at MIT, Chirik began his independent career at Cornell University in 2001. In 2006, he was promoted to Associate Professor and in 2009 was named the Peter J. W. Debye Professor of Chemistry. In 2011, Chirik and his research group moved to Princeton University where was named the Edwards S. Sanford Professor of Chemistry. His teaching and research have been recognized with an Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award, the Blavatnik Award for Young Scientists, a Packard Fellowship in science and engineering, a Camille Dreyfus Teacher Scholar Award and an NSF CAREER Award.
