Upcoming Graduate Research Symposium
The DOC Graduate Research Symposium, which provides an opportunity for 50-75 graduate students in organic chemistry to interact with leaders from academia, industry, various funding agencies, and publishers at a single venue will take place at the University of California, Irvine (Thursday, July 24 through Sunday, July 27, 2014). There will be a number of invited speakers from industry and academia, and the invited students will have the opportunity to give an oral communication, a flash presentation, or present a poster. Workshops and additional opportunities for round-table discussions will be organized to inform students about opportunities available in the field and to gain important perspectives on their post-graduate school careers.
ACS Division of Organic Chemistry
The Division of Organic Chemistry will provide gratis registration for the meeting, which includes meals and accommodation. The Division will also provide a LIMITED number of Travel Bursaries (up to $500) to attend the meeting, so applicants are strongly encouraged to seek support from other sources.
Applications for the program are due April 22, 2014 (extended to account for a website outage)
Nominations should be uploaded by the candidate's recommender who must be a member of the Organic Division via the online submission form.
