ECS membersAfter months of hard work, ECS has launched an online membership wizard. Individuals who are interested in joining ECS as a student or as a member for one, two, three or five years are now able to complete their application online and have access to their ECS My Account.

We have also added the option to pay by ACH or bank transfer with our online shopping cart.

You will have instant access to your:

  • Discounts on meeting registration & publications –the online shopping cart has been upgraded to reflect member pricing when a membership is added to the cart.
  • ECS Member ID – this number is often required on Travel Grant, Award, and Fellowship applications. This six-digit number is also your username for the ECS Digital Library.

And within 24 hours, you’ll have access to the ECS Digital Library where you can download up to 100 articles – this is a $3,500 value that members receive for free!

As an ECS Member you will also receive a complimentary open access publishing credit. This credit will provide you the opportunity to publish your next piece of work as open access with ECS – an $800 value!

Most of all, you’ll be joining a community of your peers – your ECS community. A network of individuals who work together to advance electrochemistry and solid state science, that serve the mission to disseminate our science globally and those who serve as a steward for our science.

ECS Toyota Fellowship
The Electrochemical Society with Toyota North America
2017-2018 ECS Toyota Young Investigator Fellowship
for Projects in Green Energy Technology

Proposal Submission Deadline: January 31, 2017

ECS, in partnership with the Toyota Research Institute of North America (TRINA), a division of Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc. (TEMA), is requesting proposals from young professors and scholars pursuing innovative electrochemical research in green energy technology.

Global development of industry and technology in the 20th century, increased production of vehicles and the growing population have resulted in massive consumption of fossil fuels. Today, the automotive industry faces three challenges regarding environmental and energy issues: (1) finding a viable alternative energy source as a replacement for oil, (2) reducing CO2 emissions and (3) preventing air pollution. Although the demand for oil alternatives—such as natural gas, electricity and hydrogen—may grow, each alternative energy source has its disadvantages. Currently, oil remains the main source of automotive fuel; however, further research and development of alternative energies may bring change.

Fellowship Objectives and Content

The purpose of the ECS Toyota Young Investigator Fellowship is to encourage young professors and scholars to pursue research in green energy technology that may promote the development of next-generation vehicles capable of utilizing alternative fuels. Electrochemical research has already informed the development and improvement of innovative batteries, electrocatalysts, photovoltaics and fuel cells.

Through this fellowship, ECS and TRINA hope to see more innovative and unconventional technologies borne from electrochemical research.

The fellowship will be awarded to a minimum of one candidate annually. Winners will receive a restricted grant of no less than $50,000 to conduct the research outlined in their proposal within one year. Winners will also receive a one-year complimentary ECS membership as well as the opportunity to present and/or publish their research with ECS.

Meet previous winners.

Welcoming Our Newest Student Chapters

ECS StudentsECS hosts a flourishing network of brilliant, innovative young minds. When these minds are brought together through the formation of an ECS student chapter, truly exceptional things can happen. The students benefit, and so does the scientific community at large.

At the PRiME 2016 Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii six promising new student chapters were approved. ECS is honored to welcome them aboard. The newly installed chapters are listed below:

Reflections of an ECS Intern

ECS logoMy name is Andrew Ryan. For the past eight months, I served as a Membership Services Intern at ECS under the direction of Beth Fisher. Though I worked on many different projects throughout my time at ECS, my primary contribution was writing membership related posts for the ECS website’s Redcat Blog. A great deal of the posts written over the course of the past eight months with the byline “ECS Staff” were written by me.

An English major who graduated from The College of New Jersey this past May, I was absolutely honored to have the opportunity to write for a website with such a thriving viewership. It was beyond fulfilling to be able to apply my passion for writing in a professional environment.

But ECS was more to me than a writing outlet. It was more to me than a desk job or a resume line. It was a truly, positively rewarding experience.

Let me tell you why.

Student Poster Session winners

Congratulations to the PRiME 2016 Student Poster Session winners!

It is with great pride that ECS honors the winners of the General Student Poster Session Awards for the PRiME 2016 meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii.  In following with the meeting tradition, awards recognized the top poster presentations in electrochemical and solid state categories.

ECS established the General Student Poster Session Awards in 1993 to acknowledge the eminence of its students’ work. The winners exhibit a profound understanding of their research topic and its relation to fields of interest to ECS.

In order to be eligible for the General Student Poster Session Awards, students must submit their abstracts to the Z01 General Society Student Poster Session symposium and present their posters at the biannual meeting. First and second place winners receive a certificate in addition to a cash award.

The winners of the General Student Poster Session Awards for the PRiME 2016 Meeting are as follows:
