Graduate and undergraduate students and postdoctoral researchers interested in careers in electrochemical fields are invited to the free ECS Pacific Northwest Section inaugural Industry and Careers Day. 

To promote careers in electrochemistry, the event connects participants with industry and national laboratory representatives providing insights into careers in electrochemical fields, skills valued in job candidates, and upcoming opportunities in the rapidly expanding electrochemical technology area. 

You do not need to be an ECS member to participate in the webinar. You must pre-register for the event through your ECS My Account. Don’t have one? It’s easy to create–visit Create an Account now. (more…)

The Electrochemical Society hosted Prof. Jenny Pringle’s live webinar, “The Development of New Ionic Electrolytes for Energy Storage Devices” on April 21, 2021. Her answers to questions that followed the presentation are provided below.

NOTE: Registration is required to view the webinar.

Prof. Jenny Pringle works in the Institute for Frontier Materials at Deakin University, Australia, as a chief investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) and the ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre “StorEnergy.” She received her undergraduate degrees and PhD at The University of Edinburgh, Scotland, before moving to Monash University, Australia, in 2002. From 2008-2012, she held an ARC Queen Elizabeth II Fellowship investigating the use of ionic electrolytes for dye-sensitized solar cells. Pringle moved to Deakin University in 2013. There she leads research into the development of new ionic liquids and organic ionic plastic crystals for applications including thermal energy harvesting, gas separation membranes, and lithium and sodium batteries.

Call for Nominations: Editor-in-Chief

ECS Sensors Plus

The Electrochemical Society (ECS) is seeking candidates to serve as the founding Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of ECS Sensors Plus, a journal in the process of being launched in 2021.

ECS Sensors Plus is a multidisciplinary, open access journal that provides an international platform to publish high-quality impactful articles and promote scholarly communication and interactions among scientists, engineers, and technologists whose primary interests are focused on mechanisms, materials, structures, properties, performance, and characterization of sensing and detection devices and systems, including sensor arrays, networks, and actuators. The goal of ECS Sensors Plus, as a one-stop shop journal for sensors, is to advance the fundamental science and understanding of sensors and detection technologies for efficient monitoring and control of industrial processes and the environment, and improving quality of life and human health.

Collaborating is Critical

Elton Cairns on life before, during, and after COVID-19

To round out our series, The ECS Community Adapts and Advances, we checked in with Past ECS President Elton J. Cairns, who has been a member of the Society since 1961. Over his 60+ years with ECS, he was active in the Niagara-Mohawk Section; served on many Society and division committees; was Battery division editor; held all the offices of the Physical Electrochemistry division (Chairman, 1981-1983); organized Society meeting symposia; and was elected Vice-President (1986) and President (1989-1990). Dr. Cairns received the Turner Book Prize in 1963 and was elected Fellow of The Electrochemical Society in 1991. All of this on top of teaching, mentoring, and making important contributions to science! He is Professor of the Graduate School, Berkeley College of Chemistry, University of California, Berkeley, U.S.

Life outside the lab

“We have been in shut-down for over a year without access to the lab—even though now I am vaccinated. I have been active working with some grads and postgrads through Zoom. Mostly I help them with articles they seek to publish. As for my own work, I filled the year with activities related to publishing—the nuts and bolts of the publishing process. I stay in contact with colleagues around the world through Zoom and Skype. (more…)
