NCB 113, North Campus Building, Western University of London, Ontario
Join the ACS Editors and local professionals for professional development talks brought to you by ACS on Campus, the Canadian Society for Chemistry, and Western University (University of Western Ontario). In the morning, you’ll hear from ACS Editors Prof. Shana Kelley, Associate Editor, ACS Sensors and Prof. Miriam Diamond, Associate Editor, Environmental Science & Technology on how to get your research published and master the scholarly publishing process. In the afternoon, you’ll get essential tips for your job search and hear from local professionals during the career panel, “What Can I Do with a PhD?”
The program is FREE and open to all students and researchers studying the sciences – not just chemistry! Pick and choose the sessions you want to attend. A lunch will be provided to all registered attendees. Registration is highly recommended. Walk-Ins are welcome.
