Optimizing Workplace Across Five Generations of Scientists - Challenges and Rewards Tanya Fogg   |   added on Mar 17, 2011    |    United States To visualize molecules, do you use a ball-and-stick-kit or modeling software? In today's workforce, most of us work with colleagues that span at least three generations and each has different assumptions about how the world works. The likelihood that we'll misunderstand a co-worker’s behavior is high.
Topic: acs webinar, cross-generational, generation gap Audience: mid-career, students, intern, graduate student, first-year, senior chemist

CSI Reality: Chemistry in the Crime Labs Tanya Fogg   |   added on Feb 16, 2011    |    United States Despite TV shows, forensic chemists need to be well-versed in the widest array of analytical technologies and must quickly adapt proven methods to new types of samples. Dr. Jason Schaff will discuss the different disciplines within forensic chemistry and provide an in-depth perspective of day-to-day life in a forensic lab.
