Circumvent common recruitment challenges with the ECS Career Center. Target a few quality candidates with your open jobs and avoid receiving masses of under-qualified applications from other recruitment options. Easily access a pool of talented professionals, allowing you to refine and improve the hiring portion of your recruitment process.

Here are three ways to improve hiring efficiency with the ECS Career Center:

Stand Out from the Competition

When applying for a job, you need more than luck to stand apart from other candidates. Hiring managers generally select four to six people to interview from the dozens of applications submitted. In The Electrochemical Society’s Career Center, your application is among a smaller, more qualified talent pool, increasing your chances of being selected. (more…)

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine study committee on Chemical Engineering: Challenges and Opportunities in the 21st Century seeks input from the chemical engineering community on the current state and future of the field. The ideas collected will assist the committee members as they outline a vision for chemical engineering research, education, and industrial innovation over the next 30 years.

The deadline to submit input is 1700h ET on Monday, May 24, 2021.

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.

The Electrochemical Society mourns the passing of Nobel Laureate and long-term member, Isamu Akasaki, on April 1, 2021.

“The world knew Isamu Akasaki as the pioneering scientist who invented the blue LED. At the Society, we came to know him on a more personal level during his 35-plus years of membership. We tracked the extraordinary progress of Professor Akasaki’s research at ECS meetings and in ECS journal articles. We also noted his remarkable humility and how he always credited his success to the support of co-researchers, students, and colleagues. Prof. Akasaki was both a leader in the field, and mentor to a generation of scientists following his lead in finding solutions to reducing global dependence on fossil fuels,” said Christopher Jannuzzi, ECS Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer.

Electrochemistry in Orbit

Guest blog by Dr. Alyson Lanciki, Scientific Editor, Metrohm International

For over twenty years now, there has been continuous human occupation off our planet.

The International Space Station (ISS), launched in 1998, is a modular satellite in low orbit around the Earth, which is visible even with the naked eye.

In October, NASA launched an Antares rocket carrying a Cygnus resupply ship. This cargo ship carried an experimental system on board used to study the oxidation of ammonia under microgravity conditions to convert urine into water on the ISS. Improving this waste management system has far-reaching repercussions for longer exploratory missions where the weight of the payload must be optimized with the amount of water needed (which is heavy) to sustain life during the trip. Given the limited resources aboard a spaceship, the recovery of water from all processes is of great importance. (more…)
