Introductory Research Talks in Organic Chemistry

Tuesday & Thursday evenings in Seminar Hall [1315], starting at 6:30

First-year Grad Students interested in Organic Chemistry: on Tuesday & Thursday evenings, starting 9 Sept, faculty members interested in mentoring organic students will present brief descriptions of their research programs. These talks are a means of obtaining a broad overview of Organic Chemistry research in the Department. Attendance at these talks is required for all graduate students in the Organic Division; and other students are welcome.

Introductory Research Talks in Physical Chemistry

Thursdays 5:45-7:45 pm Room 8335

For entering graduate students interested in physical chemistry, there will be a series of short talks by faculty members describing their research interests. These will be held at 5:45 p.m. Thursdays during the first six weeks of the semester. There will be one half-hour talk followed by an informal supper and then two more talks.

Since these talks are brief, students should follow up by contacting individual faculty members in whose research they are interested. Each student should interview at least three faculty members during the fall semester concerning research opportunities.

 

These talks are a means of finding research opportunities and of obtaining a broad overview of physical chemistry research in the Department. Students expecting to major in physical chemistry should make every effort to attend all of these talks. Teaching Assistants should mark this time on the schedule cards turned in to the teaching Laboratory Director.
