Astrochemistry in Scientific American
A recent article appearing in the popular science magazine Scientific American is bringing astrochemistry to the forefront of modern science. Check out "The Hunt for Alien Molecules" by Clara Moskowitz.
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.
Future Astrochemistry Directions
An open forum on astrochemistry was held at the Bringing Astrochemicals Back to Earth Symposium during the August 2015 ACS Meeting in Boston. Feel free to check out append the linked Google Doc.
Each year the sudvision recognizes an outstanding Ph.D. thesis from within the preceding two calendar years. The recipient and nominators must be members of the Astrochemistry Subdivision. The award consists of a $500 cash prize and a certificate given at the annual Fall ACS meeting.
For students interested in pursuing graduate work, postdoctoral opportunities, and summer interships (even at NASA installations) within the multidisciplinary field of astrochemistry, this is a (ever-changing) listing of academic faculty and NASA researchers who are interested in astrochemistry.
