The Chemistry Interest Group (CIG) strives to improve and sustain the inherent interdisciplinary nature of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) 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. As a global interest group, the CIG will offer opportunities to its members to interact and address global chemistry topics. The CIG strives to improve opportunities to expand member's global network.

Topics of interest for the CIG

The Chemistry Interest Group (CIG) encourages activities on all topics that are related to chemistry and the environment. Example areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • scientific and technological developments in analytical techniques for measuring concentrations of contaminants, including sampling and extraction technologies
  • development of scientific insights into processes such as sorption, degradation and transport of contaminants in the environment
  • development of scientific insights into chemical exposure in toxicological studies ranging from cellular assays to whole organism and ecosystems
  • development of methods to predict fate, exposure and effects of contaminants, for example via QSAR

John Toll wrote on the Global Interest Groups: Chemistry Interest Group wall: Windward Environmental is hiring someone to manage environmental chemistry databases. Ideally it would be an early career professional, but it’s possible that we’d consider someone more senior, or a graduate student as an intern. We want someone familiar with analytical environmental chemistry labs and with strong communication and data management skills. I’m hoping that you can help me identify people who’d be strong candidates. Our job posting is here: http://www.windwardenv.com/career-opportunities/ We want to hire somebody right away. Would you let me know please if you have any leads?
