Objectives of the Astrochemistry Subdivision
Astrochemistry is one of the most interdisciplinary fields of modern science. The purpose of this subdivision is to promote work in this field.
Upcoming Astrochemistry Symposia & Workshops
No additional symposia/workshops at this time.
Each year the subdivision recognizes an outstanding Ph.D. thesis from within the preceding two calendar years. Applications are due around March 1. The winner will receive a $500 prize, an invitation to give a talk at the Fall ACS meeting, and a $500 travel award provided by ACS Earth and Space Chemistry to attend the Fall ACS meeting. The recipient and nominators must be members of the Astrochemistry Subdivision, and the Ph.D. must be conferred by the deadline. The 2019 recipient of the award is Dr. Cameron Mackie, currently at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.
For students interested in contacting astrochemistry practitioners, this is a (ever-changing) listing of academic faculty and NASA researchers who work in the field.
