Announcement: Fall 2020 Virtual Symposium
Mark your calendars! On December 12, 2020, the Canadian Section of The Electrochemical Society will hold its Fall Symposium in an on-line format. This meeting is organized by Prof. Byron Gates (SFU) and will include a diverse set of invited talks with the opportunity for contributed talks from students, award ceremonies to celebrate the winner of the 2020 ECS Canada Section Student Award and the winner of the Jacobsen Award, a chance to meet with vendors and other networking opportunities, an opportunity to meet colleagues and to make new acquaintances. We seek to bring together researchers from a diverse range of fields that are developing electrochemical theory and techniques, and using each to make advances in the areas of electrocatalysis, electrodeposition and corrosion, battery materials, and the study of interfaces and interface phenomena.
Stay tuned here for details on how to register. We would be thrilled to have you join us for this event!
Aug. 2020: Electrochemistry PDF - Calgary
The Birss group at the University of Calgary has an immediate opening for a PDF for a one year project in the area of electrochemistry, with a specific focus on binding of biological molecules to SAMs, surface electrochemistry, and use of these modified electrodes in sensor applications. Candidates who do not have a PhD, but who have the appropriate knowledge and background required for this position, will also be considered. If you are interested in this opportunity, please send your resume and cover letter to Dr. Viola Birss at email@example.com as soon as possible.
