Introductory Research Talks in Physical Chemistry - 2010
Thursdays 5:45-7:35 pm Room 9341
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. on Thursdays during the first weeks of the semester.
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.

DAAD Science Tour 2010
"Chemistry Research and Higher Education in Germany: Today's Endeavors Towards  Green Chemistry"
December 5 - 11, 2010.
In December 2010, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) will once again sponsor an informational visit on current developments in chemistry research and higher education in Germany. The tour is for North American faculty, scientists and administrators and will take place from December 5th to December 11th, 2010. This year's tour main focal points are environmentally-friendly synthesis, production and recycling processes with a special focus on catalysis, new polymers and nanomaterials. Participants will visit various institutions to learn about cutting-edge research and its application. There will be visits to renowned universities and research institutions, including Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, RWTH Aachen, Heidelberg University, Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology,  and Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Chemistry as well as BASF, the world's leading chemical company. With this tour DAAD offers scientists and administrators an opportunity to learn about the present situation in chemistry research and higher education in Germany. We hope to enable them to identify common interests and starting points for cooperation in these areas as well as possible funding opportunities. The program will be in English. All program-related costs in Germany (accommodations, travel, most meals) will be borne by the DAAD. Intercontinental travel is at the participants' expense. Applicants must be US or Canadian citizens or residents, have a special interest in Germany and transatlantic cooperation, and a relevant professional position. They should not have recently participated in another information trip to Germany. Applications must BeReceived by: October 6, 2010.  For further information, please go to: http://www.daad.org/page/sciencetour/ or contact Uta Gaedeke at 212-758 3223 x:209 or via e-mail at: gaedeke@daad.org.

Three faculty positions in Diagnostics and Therapeutics Research at Georgia State University. As part of GSU's Second Century Initiative (2CI) to add 100 faculty members over the next five years in selected areas, the College of Arts and Sciences plans to fill a cluster of three tenure-track faculty positions (rank open) within a year in the areas of chemical probe development (chemical biology), biomarkers, and chemosensors, pending budgetary approval. Emphasis will be on recruiting established investigators with external funding. Each appointment will be made to an academic department in accordance to the individual's degree and area of expertise and will be affiliated with the Center. The same building also houses the Departments of Biology and Chemistry, the Neuroscience Institute, Center for Biotechnology and Drug Design, an animal facility, a BSL4 lab and several BSL3 labs, Center for Viral Immunology, as well as the Molecular Basis of Disease Program and the Brains and Behavior Program for optimal interactions and collaborations. Successful candidates must have a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent degree and demonstrate the ability to establish a vigorous, externally funded research program and to mentor Ph.D. graduate students. Excellence in teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels is expected. Candidates at senior levels must have strong track records in research and teaching excellence, and in securing external funding. Applicants should submit a C.V., a detailed research plan(s), a statement of teaching philosophy, and a list of at least three references to: Dr. Binghe Wang, Diagnostics Faculty  Search Committee, Department of Chemistry, Georgia State University, P.O. Box 4098, Atlanta, GA 30302-4098. Application processing will begin immediately and search will remain open until filled.
********************
The Department of Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, http://www.uwsp.edu/chemistry, invites applications for a tenure-track position in physical chemistry at the assistant professor level. The appointment will begin in August 2011. Individuals with expertise and experimental research interests related to biological areas are especially encouraged to apply. Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry or a related field is required: must be completed by September 2011. Candidates must have demonstrated competencies in the areas of thermodynamics, kinetics, quantum mechanics, and spectroscopy. Candidates will teach courses in physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry, and general chemistry as needs require. Applicants must show promise for excellence in teaching and will be expected to develop a research program involving undergraduates. Send hard copies of a vita, a statement of teaching philosophy, plans for proposed research, undergraduate and graduate transcripts, and have three letters of reference sent to: Chair of Search Committee, Department of Chemistry, University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point, Stevens Point, WI 54481. Application materials and reference letters may not be sent electronically. Screening will begin on October 18, 2010 and will continue until the position is filled.
