ACS on Campus is partnership with corporate, government, academic, and non-profit host campuses around the world.
"Very clear and informative talk on the peer-review process. It is now much clearer thanks!"Napoleon Tercero, Post-DocThe National Institutes of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD
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
- Earning grant funding, fellowships, and awards
- Effectively using research tools like SciFinder® and ACS journals online
- 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.
Sign Up For An Event
Time and time again students tell us that they value ACS on Campus because the program provides information and resources they cannot find anywhere else. Encourage your students to register today.
ACS on Campus modules feature seminars in publishing, career development, and web resources like SciFinder®. Learn more about our modules.

Leaders in the field
Associate Editor, Organic Letters; Professor of Organic Chemistry; ESPCI ParisTech, Paris (France)
Janine Cossy’s early career was spent in Reims, where she did her undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of this city, working on photochemistry under the supervision of Pr Jean Pierre Pète. After a postdoctoral stay with Pr Barry Trost, for two years at the University of Wisconsin (USA), she returned to Reims where she became, in 1990, Director of Research of CNRS. In the same year, she moved to Paris to become Professor of Organic Chemistry at the ESPCI (Ecole Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de la Ville de Paris), and in 1991, she was nominated Director of the CNRS Unit (UMR 7084) at the ESPCI ParisTech.
Janine Cossy's research interests focus on the synthesis of natural products and biologically active molecules (anti-cancer agents, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory agents and central nervous system drugs). The synthetic methodologies that she develops and applies include radical reactions, photochemistry, thermal reactions, organometallic reactions, catalysis, ring expansions, opening of strained rings, methods for the synthesis of heterocyclic compounds, stereoselective reactions. Her research efforts have resulted in more than 400 publications and 15 patents. Her list of awards includes the CNRS Bronze Medal (1987), the CNRS Silver Medal (1996), UK Royal Society Rosalyn Francklin International Lecturership awarded to internationally recognized women scientists (UK) (2005), Le Bel Award from the French Chemical Society (France) (2009). Recently, she was nominated Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur (2013).
