Congratulations to Aicheng Chen, the 2020 Canada Section R.C. Jacobsen Award recipient!

Dr. Aicheng Chen is Professor of Chemistry, Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Electrochemistry and Nanoscience, and Director of the Electrochemical Technology Centre (ETC) at the University of Guelph, Canada. He received his MSc from Xiamen University, China, under the supervision of Prof. S.-G. Sun, and his PhD from the University of Guelph in 1998 under the direction of Prof. J. Lipkowski. After working in the chemical industry as Research Scientist and Electrochemical Specialist for four years, Chen joined Lakehead University, Canada, as Assistant Professor in 2002. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 2005, Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in 2006, and Professor in 2010. He received a Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Senior Fellowship in 2006 to work with Prof. B. Ohtani at Hokkaido University, Japan. During his 2008 sabbatical, Dr. Chen worked with Prof. R. Compton as a visiting scholar at Oxford University, England. He joined the University of Guelph in 2017. (more…)

The ECS Summer Fellowship Program assists students during the summer months of June through September to pursue work in a field of interest to ECS. The 2020 fellowship recipients are:

Edward G Weston Fellowship

“Towards Quantifying Ion Kinetics at Confined Nanointerfaces using Electrochemical Fluctuation Methods”
Andrew Pendergast (more…)

Application deadline: January 15, 2021

The ECS Colin Garfield Fink Summer Fellowship assists a postdoctoral scientist or engineer to pursue research from June through August. The fellowship includes $5,000 and recognition in the ECS Blog and Interface. It is named in honor of Colin G. Fink, ECS president from 1917-1918.

To qualify for the fellowship, applicants must be a current postdoc and a Society member in good standing.

Laboratory Automation and Accelerated Synthesis: Empowering Tomorrow’s Chemist—A Workshop

The Chemical Sciences Roundtable is hosting a workshop exploring laboratory automation which can provide chemists and other scientists with the ability to create libraries of new compounds efficiently in unprecedented time. The promise of laboratory automation is much more realistic today with recent advances in various technologies than in years past. As technology improves, however, one must consider how best to automate the laboratory and train next-generation chemists, chemical engineers, materials and formulation scientists, and others.
