ALChemE & Troost ILead Redpath tour

PROFESSORS, if you have summer students this year, please inform them about the ALChemE & Troost ILead Redpath tour on Friday, August 10. This unique opportunity will give your students a chance to visit the refinery’s facilities (which accepts 21 000 tonnes of sugar twice a month from Brazil!), and meet chemical engineers now working at Redpath. For more details and to register, students should visit this page.

REMINDER: PDF opportunity

The Pardee (www.pardeelab.org) and Sinton Labs (www.sintonlab.com) at the University of Toronto are seeking a postdoctoral fellow with expertise in mechanical engineering and/or chemical engineering. The proposed project aims to develop a fluid-handling device to manipulate synthetic biology reactions, temperature control and optical monitoring.

REMINDER: SOCAAR requires lab assistant needed for air quality and health research

The Southern Ontario Centre for Atmospheric Aerosol Research (SOCAAR) is looking for a research assistant interested in air quality and its impacts on human health. This will initially be a three-month position with the possibility of an extension and/or conversion into an MASc thesis project. SOCAAR is looking for a talented candidate interested in working in a wet-lab environment to apply a challenging new method for evaluating the toxicity of particulate matter. Interested individuals should send their resume and a copy of their transcript to Prof. Greg Evans at greg.evans@utoronto.ca.

REMINDER: UnERD on Tue, Aug 14
