CINF Careers Committee

The CINF Careers Committee has the goal of promoting careers in chemical information and providing practitioners with information that will be beneficial to building their careers. They have sponsored symposia at national meetings and are in the process of developing useful, Web-based materials for new and seasoned chemical information professionals. The Careers Committee is always looking for interested individuals to join the team; geography is immaterial, and travel is not required; the committee meets virtually several times per year, with current members located across the United States. The following is a brief report of recent committee activities.

Preparing for ACS National Meetings

If you are new to the division or you know someone who is, please see our handout about “Preparing for the CINF Division of the ACS National Conference”

Career Resources

The committee is also in the process of reviewing and updating our “Resources in Careers in Chemical Information”.

We would welcome suggestions of recently published books and articles about careers in chemical information.

Calling All Committee Members!

Do you belong to a CINF committee, an ACS national committee, or a committee of another ACS division that discusses issues related to chemical information or cheminformatics? Consider submitting a brief summary of your committee’s activities to the Chemical Information Bulletin, to be placed in the Committee Reports section. Submissions may be of any length and should be sent directly to the editor of the issue in which you wish them to appear; a list of editors appears in the CINF Officers section of this issue of the CIB. This is a great way to disseminate the news of your committee’s activities to the broader chemical information community!
