Elin M. Ulrich wrote on the North America Advisory Groups: Chemistry wall: A multidisciplinary research team at the University of Toronto is seeking a talented and motivated PhD candidate to join a funded research project to investigate occupational and environmental exposure to flame retardant chemicals through both airborne and dermal routes of exposure. Applications from exceptional MSc candidates may also be considered. Applicants will be expected to participate in all aspects of the study including, but not limited to, sample preparation, sample collection in a local workplace as well as both laboratory, statistical analysis of exposure data and writing up results. Demonstrated experience with GC-MS is preferred. The ideal start date would be January 2016. For further information please contact either Dr. Miriam Diamond (miriam.diamond@utoronto.ca)or Dr. Victoria Arrandale (victoria.arrandale@utoronto.ca)

Global CAG

2014 CAG Annual Report

Operating Guidelines

Mission

The mission of the Chemistry Advisory Group (CAG) is to recruit and retain chemists to SETAC, and to promote professional and social activities to emphasize chemistry--the "C" in SETAC.

Scope/Vision

The Chemistry Advisory Group (CAG) strives to improve and sustain the inherent interdisciplinary nature of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry organization in members and expertise. We increase awareness of and relevance for environmental chemistry through scientific, education and communication opportunities for chemists in the environmental field.

Objectives
  • Increase the awareness of the SETAC in the chemistry community, and the awareness of chemistry in the SETAC community.
  • Increase active membership, participation, and engagement in SETAC by chemists involved in all aspects of environmental chemistry.
  • Create an improved atmosphere and potential for interactions for chemists with other disciplines within SETAC and between other chemistry organizations.

Organization

Membership in the Chemistry Advisory Group is open to all SETAC members, and to all professionals and students interested in the topics addressed by the CAG. Members must have a commitment to the purpose, goals, and operating guidelines of the Chemistry Advisory Group and commit to supporting the CAG.

The Chemistry Steering Committee (CSC), the leadership of the advisory group, guides the CAG’s activities. The CSC may be composed of advisory group members and the larger pool of people attending sessions, meetings, or otherwise contributing to the CAG’s goals. Any SETAC member may participate in activities organized by the CAG.

Announcements of openings for new Steering Committee members will be circulated via SETAC email notifications, with nominations sent to the Steering Committee for review and confirmation of willingness to serve. Balance of sectors (government, industry, and academia) and geographic location (Canada, United States, and Mexico) will be maintained.

How To Become a Member of the AG


SETAC members can become a member of the AG by expressing their interest in their SETAC profile. This will enable access to the forum for the AG on the SETAC Communities site. All persons with an interest in chemistry are encouraged to participate.
Non-SETAC members can contact the SETAC office in Pensacola (FL) at +1-850-469-1500 to request access to the SETAC Communities site.

Activities

The Chemistry Advisory Group currently supports several chemistry related sessions at the SETAC North America annual meeting as well as a travel award for non-SETAC members to present at the conference. The CAG is engaged in an effort to develop joint activities on a regional basis with other chemistry related organizations (such as the ACS) to further our outreach within the chemistry community.

Student Exchange Award
The Student Exchange Award is presented to one student each year at the SETAC North America meeting. This award is based on the student’s presentation at the meeting and an application submitted to the CAG. The student is then invited to present the same research at the following American Chemical Society meeting and awarded a travel stipend to cover meeting expenses. Requests for applications will be sent out mid August and applications are due September 15th each year.
