CSC2014 - only ten days away!

 We are just ten days away from the start of the CSC2014 meeting at the Convention Centre in Downtown Vancouver. The schedule looks amazing (take a look for yourself here) and we are looking forward to seeing all of you there. As you prepare your schedule for the conference, keep in mind the following items that should be of particular note for members of the inorganic division are as follows:

Rita Cornforth Fellowship position at ANU

The Research School of Chemistry at the Australian National University solicits faculty applications for the Rita Cornforth Fellowship, from female candidates seeking to establish their independent chemical research group. The position is specifically aimed at women at the Lecturer B/C level, i.e., the point where gender imbalance traditionally escalates. Closing date: June 2, 2014.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Chirogenesis at Concordia University

A Postdoctoral position is available under the direct supervision of Prof. Louis Cuccia (Concordia University) in collaboration with Prof. Scott Bohle (McGill University) and Prof. Luc Trembay (University of Moncton). This position is available June 1, 2014 or as soon as possible thereafter. The successful applicant will identify catalytic mineral surfaces identical, or closely related to meteoritic matter capable of racemizing proteinogenic amino acids.

CSC2014 inorganic mixer to be held in popular Gastown pub!

The upcoming CSC2014 meeting in Vancouver will feature excellent symposia, talks, and posters. However, there is much to be said about the social aspects of the conference, where old friends can catch up and new friendships are created. As part of the all-important social events, we are glad to announce details of the Inorganic Mixer, which is always one of the highlights! The mixer will be held on Wednesday evening (June 4th starting at 8pm) at the Blarney Stone, an extremely popular pub at the heart of historic Gastown.
