We're hiring! Open general faculty position (non tenure-track, 3 year contract) specializing in organic labs.
Chemical education researchers at UVa focus on transforming STEM instruction at the undergraduate level by studying faculty and teaching assistants.
Crystal growth theory predicts that heterogeneous nucleation will occur preferentially at defect sites, such as the vertices rather than the faces of shape-controlled seeds. Platonic metal solids are generally assumed to have vertices with nearly identical chemical potentials, and also nearly identical faces, leading to the useful generality that heterogeneous nucleation preserves the symmetry of the original seeds in the final product.
The Chemistry Department announces the selection of Dr. Jill Venton as the new Department Chair.
