Why should you host acs on campus?

Professional development is the missing piece

The purpose of ACS on Campus is to provide graduate students, post-docs, and non-tenured researchers and faculty with the necessary skills to thrive in today’s job market. Sessions focus on:

  • Determining careers of interest
  • Finding a job
  • Publishing
  • Earning grant funding, fellowships, and awards
  • Effectively using research tools like SciFinder® and ACS journals online
  • Networking
  • Advocating for science and chemistry
  • Communicating science to chemists and non chemists alike

 

What is the value for students and faculty?

Understand the breadth of career paths

Half of your students will not work in academia. Where are they getting training in the skills they’ll need to join a rapidly transforming workforce?

Learn how a paper goes from submitted to published

Most graduate students never see the “back end” of the publishing process. Our seminars give them a behind-the-scenes look at peer-review.

Practice composing grant proposals to secure funding

Obtaining grant funding and publishing are the two biggest challenges for a researcher. As a funding organization, we have the expertise to guide applicants in this process.

Use the right tools at the right time for maximum efficiency in the lab

Using SciFinder® and ACS journals expertly can be the difference between spending one day at computer versus two weeks in the lab. Learn about maximizing the power of these tools.
