ECS Launches New Job Search Website

The Electrochemical Society launched the ECS Career Center in early 2019, a new career center that connects our constituency across all disciplines and career stages with employers offering career opportunities.

Powered by YourMembership, the leading provider of job websites and career centers for organizations that serve specialized members, the ECS Career Center is an innovative gateway that matches the right employers with the right student/professional talent to help keep organizations well-staffed, and professionals’ careers moving along a professional path that meets their goals.

Holiday Warning: Deadly Batteries

With the holidays fast approaching, you may find yourself purchasing toys and gifts for some little ones. As you do, it’s important to keep some safety tips in mind. The National Capital Poison Center recently reported an increasing number of fatal button batteries ingestions over the years.

These coin-sized batteries have the potential to cause severe esophageal or airway burns when stuck in the esophagus, even after no initial signs of irritation directly after ingestion. Batteries stuck, including in the nose and ears, for over 2 hours can cause burns and serious complications.

Most commonly nickel-sized button batteries are the most hazardous as their size can allow them to become lodged in the throat and burn faster as a result.

However, there are measures that gift-givers and parents can take.

ECS Donation to Toys for Tots

Lance Corporal Kleshick

With Mickey Mouse peaking his head out a fully stocked Toys for Tots box, Lance Corporal Kleshick picked the mouse and friends up from The Electrochemical Society’s office in Pennington, NJ, in route to the arms of children and their new homes.

To date, over 250 million children have been supported by donations like these, helping spread the magic of the holiday season each year.

ECS’s Human Resource and Operations Manager Jessica Wisniewski reached out to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation program to include the Society in their efforts. With that, ECS became a designated toy drop site and throughout the following weeks, staff added games, stuffed animals, trucks, coloring books, and more to the growing box.

Symposium A04: Battery Student Slam 3

Symposium Focus: This special symposium is dedicated to students working on energy storage and energy conversion. In the student slam, we offer an opportunity for students to present flash oral presentations of their work in a 10-minute time slot. All students enrolled at any valid degree-granting institution may submit an abstract describing the presentation. Of particular interest are new materials and designs, performance studies, and modeling of all types of batteries, supercapacitors and fuel cells, including aqueous, non-aqueous, polymer electrolytes, solid electrolytes, and flow systems. We strongly encourage students to submit their papers to this symposium instead of other symposia sponsored by the Battery Division at this meeting. (more…)

Topic Close-up #3

Symposium I05: Heterogeneous Functional Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage 2

Symposium focus: This symposium will focus on the science that controls emergent properties in heterogeneous functional materials as a foundation for the design of functional material devices with performance not bounded by constituent properties.

Providing a unique venue for both contributed and invited speakers to present the latest advances in novel modeling approaches, advanced 3-D imaging and characterization techniques, novel material synthesis and manufacturing methods to create highly ordered material structure, and applications of heterogeneous functional materials in devices for energy conversion and storage.

This symposium especially encourages and welcomes contributed presentations. (more…)

The Electrochemical Society aims to advance theory and practice at the forefront of electrochemical and solid state science and technology, and allied subjects.

One of the joys of Halloween is the freedom to dress up as anyone or anything you want for the entire day. Why not take the opportunity to dress up as someone you admire, like a scientist! So many who’ve made history are unconventional, quirky, and undeniably impressive; you’ll be sure to leave a lasting impression yourself! Here are our top 8 science-themed Halloween costume ideas for males, females, parents, and couples. Check it out:

Bill Nye the Science Guy

Bringing our Communities Together

There are a number of ongoing projects at ECS that will help move the organization forward—specifically related to your experience as a member of our community.

Late last week, ECS imported records from ECSxPress (the journal manuscript submission and peer review system), and Confex (the meeting abstract submission system) into ECS’s main database management system to make it easier to communicate with you via email.

If you didn’t already have an account in our main database, you now have access to the ECS My Account features: email communication preferences, tracking event participation, connecting your social media, adding your interests, and more. (more…)

AiMES 2018: Best Student Posters

At AiMES 2018 in Cancun, Mexico, there were more than 80 students posters submitted to the Z01 General Student Poster Session.

The general student poster session was held on Tuesday night, October 2, 2018. This session draws a number of participants at each meeting as awards are given to the best posters. Awards recognize the student’s knowledge and understanding of their research; and the research’s relationship to fields of interest to ECS.

The recipients of the best poster awards for AiMES 2018 are: (more…)
