Calling all analytical scientists and scientific communicators!
EAS is looking for a student representative: an undergraduate or graduate student that will have an affiliation with the governing board. The role of the student representative is to work directly with the EAS Publicity & Social Media Committee (Chair: Yongchao Su; Vice Chair: Michelle Case), creating posts for EAS social media platforms throughout the entire year and leading social media initiatives to increase engagement with EAS.
The candidate is expected to spend time each week making contributions to the social media platforms of EAS, attend 4 board meetings per year, and be present at the 4-day symposium, which is held the third week of November (14-16). Board meetings may be held virtually or in person and are mainly scheduled for a Friday morning, thus the candidate should live within driving distance (~5-6 hrs.) of Princeton, NJ. EAS provides travel reimbursement for attendance at the meetings. The affiliation starts November of 2022 with a maximum duration of 2 years.
A knowledge of social media platforms, current enrollment in a discipline centered in or related to the analytical sciences or scientific communication would be highly valued in this role. Applications consisting of a CV and a cover letter should be emailed to the Executive Secretary, Bernadette Taylor, at firstname.lastname@example.org by the application deadline of September 15, 2022. Additional questions can be addressed to current or former Student Representatives: Caelin Celani (email@example.com), Lasangi Dhanapala (firstname.lastname@example.org), & Shelby Zangari (email@example.com)
The Eastern Analytical Symposium (EAS) is a volunteer organization that sponsors a scientific conference and exposition each November. The annual symposium is attended by more than 1500 scientists from industry, academia, and government. The symposium offers educational short courses, student seminars, professional development workshops, and technical sessions: including award sessions, oral presentations, and poster presentations. The exposition presents information, products, and services from companies that supply the analytical chemistry field at large. The symposium and all in person board meetings are held in the Princeton, NJ area.
