The Office of Naval Research (ONR) Young Investigator Program (YIP) selected Jeffrey Rinehart, Assistant Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry at UC San Diego, as a recipient of the 2016 Young Investigator Award (YIA). The three-year YIA, totaling $510,000, will support Professor Rinehart's research developing colloidally-synthesized heterostructured nanomaterials that can be used in the design and production of smaller, stronger, more efficient computing components. The ONR YIP is one of the most established and selective scientific research advancement programs in the country. Its purpose is to fund early-career academic researchers whose scientific pursuits show outstanding promise for supporting the Department of Defense, while also promoting their professional development. Congratulations Professor Rinehart!
Congratulations to Allie Chen (Cohen Lab) on receiving the University of California Symposium for Chemical Sciences Dalton Transactions poster prize! The Symposium brought graduate students and postdocs from across the University of California together to network and star up new collaborations.
It is our pleasure to inform you that Katja Lindenberg has been awarded the Oliver Johnson Award for Distinguished Leadership in the Academic Senate.
On June 4th, 2016 we will hold the very first Southern California Theoretical Chemistry (SoCal TheoChem) Symposium at the UC San Diego in La Jolla, CA. This one-day event will serve as a testimony of the vitality and high concentration of research groups engaged in theoretical chemistry in the geographical area. The primary goal of this boutique workshop is to provide a focused outlet for researchers to present their work to their colleagues, to network and build professional relationships, and to create a stronger community of researchers of the field in the region. The hope is that this workshop will be repeated in the future in different locations of Southern California.
