JOIN THE EFMC COMMUNICATION TEAM!
The European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC) invites young and motivated medicinal chemists or chemical biologists to volunteer for its communication team, to help develop, feed and monitor its presence on social media (Twitter, LinkedIn & Facebook).
This is an opportunity for you to be informed of the latest scientific trends and events, develop an extensive network across the community, strongly increase your visibility and awareness of the many opportunities offered by the EFMC… and it comes with a travel grant to the EFMC main symposium!
The members of the EFMC communication team are responsible for the execution of a professional and relevant social media content, and to develop a plan to boost community engagement and EFMC brand awareness. The social media strategy will be elaborated with the EFMC executive committee.
What can you contribute?
Interested in joining the team?
Contact the EFMC Administrative Secretariat with a CV and short Cover Letter explaining your motivation and potential Social Media/Blogging activities, by December 1, 2017:
Call for Nominations: 2018 IUPAC-Richter Prize in Medicinal Chemistry
The 2018 IUPAC-Richter Prize will be presented during the 36th National Medicinal Chemistry Symposium (April 29 - May 02, 2018) on Medicinal Chemistry in Nashville, Tennessee (USA), where the recipient will also give a plenary lecture on the subject of his/her research.
The prize is to be awarded to an internationally recognized scientist, preferably a medicinal chemist, whose activities or published accounts have made an outstanding contribution to the practice of medicinal chemistry or to an outstanding example of new drug discovery.
The Prize - USD 10 000 - has been established by a generous gift from the Chemical Works of Gedeon Richter, Plc. (Budapest, Hungary) to acknowledge the key role that medicinal chemistry plays toward improving human health.
Applicants should be received by NOMINATION only, with just one person needing to serve in that capacity, although a total of five (5) individuals should be listed as referees overall. The package must be submitted electronically and should contain a complete resume, a professional autobiography of not more than two pages, and a one-page summary of what the individual considers to be his/her activities, accomplishments and/or publications that have had the most significant impact upon the field of Medicinal Chemistry. The material will be forwarded confidentially to an independent selection committee appointed by the IUPAC Subcommittee on Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Development.
For further information please contact Prof. Janos Fischer, Chairman of the IUPAC Sub-committee on Drug Discovery and Drug Development, by email at email@example.com
Nomination materials should be uploaded by 15 December 2017
