Invitation to Attend the Committee on International Security and Arms Control (CISAC)

25th Anniversary Symposium and Webcast

November 4, 2005 - National Academy of Sciences Building

Washington, DC

The Committee on International Security and Arms Control (CISAC) was created in 1980 to bring the National Academy of Sciences' scientific and technological resources to bear on critical problems of peace and security. To mark its 25th Anniversary, CISAC will host a public symposium on November 4, 2005 at the National Academy of Sciences Building at 2100 C Street NW, Washington, DC. Throughout its history, CISAC has demonstrated that international connections among individuals and organizations with scientific and technical expertise can form the basis of informal, non-governmental "Track II" dialogues between nations. The symposium will briefly examine CISAC's origins during the Cold War, then focus on what role CISAC can play in addressing contemporary international security problems. Scholars and scientists from the United States, Russia, China, and India will examine regional security issues, biological threats, nonproliferation and nuclear weapons policies, and combating nuclear and radiological terrorism.

Speakers include:

Thomas Schelling (NAS), winner of 2005 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics, emeritus distinguished university professor, department of economics, University of Maryland, College Park.

Frank Press (NAS), former president of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and former chairman of the National Research Council.

David Franz, chief biological scientist, Midwest Research Institute, Chair of the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB) International Committee.

Valentin Ivanov, member of the Duma of the Russian Federation.

Ye Ru'an, vice president, China Arms Control and Disarmament Association.

Arvind Kumar, senior researcher, Indian National Institute of Advanced Studies.

The symposium will take place from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM at the National Academy of Sciences Building - 2100 C Street NW, across from the State Department). Lunch will be provided and a reception will immediately follow the program. A PDF agenda is available on the CISAC website at: http://www.nasonline.org/site/R?i=gEyhKKjsgGkTUEkZeNGY8g - http://www.nas.edu/cisac; those who cannot attend may listen to a live audio webcast of the meeting and submit questions using an e-mail form at: http://www.nasonline.org/site/R?i=CBrsdPegOTCHQgPg2krd6Q - http://www.national-academies.org/, available the day of the symposium. For more information or to register to attend, contact Ben Rusek by e-mail at: mail to: cisac@nas.edu or by calling 202 334.2811.

********************

We have recently advertised a tenure track inorganic chemistry position at Berea College in Berea, KY in the September 12th issue of C&E News. We welcome applications from students who are finishing up their graduate study this year as well as post-doctoral students. The chemist we hire should be an excellent teacher as well as a solid researcher. We believe that Berea College is fundamentally a different kind of place than many other liberal arts colleges and its unique nature might be of interest to some of your students. We are a selective college that only admits financially needy students and we charge no tuition to these students. We serve mostly students in the Appalachian region but also have about 10% of our student body from overseas and a total African-American population of about 20% of our 1500 total students. We average about 12 majors each year of whom about 5 on average go on to graduate school, 2 to pharmacy and perhaps 1 to medical school. The rest have generally gone on to work in industry as technicians or a few have gone back to secondary education and gotten a teacher certification. Our department is well equipped for a liberal arts college. We have a 300 MHz JEOL NNIR spectrometer with both solid state and pulsed field gradient capabilities, a Finnigan LCQ DecaMax LC/MS, UVIVis, multiple GC (one MS) and other instruments. We have two dedicated research labs in our building for faculty with sufficient hoods for about 6 to 8 undergraduate research assistants. Our library holdings are moderate (about 12 ACS journals and assorted others) but we are in close proximity to both Eastern Kentucky University (10 minutes) and the University of Kentucky (45 minutes) and access to their library holdings is quite convenient. We have five faculty members in the department (physical, organic, inorganic, analytical and biochemistry). For those who wish to apply, we will begin to review applications in late November. Applicants should submit a letter of application, current CV, research plans, teaching plans, graduate and undergraduate transcripts and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to: Jay Baltisberger, Chemistry Department Chair, Chemistry Search Committee, CP0 1722, Berea College, Berea, KY 40404, Phone: 859-985-3298. Additional information about Berea College and our chemistry department may be found online at: http://www.berea.edu or Http://www.chemistry.berea.edu. Berea is located in central Kentucky in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains so that we gain the benefits of a rural environment with the urban luxuries of Lexington, Cincinnati and Knoxville nearby.
