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
Over 2/3s 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.
