2018 PCCP Emerging Investigator Lectureship: awarded to Professor Debashree Ghosh

Nominations were open to all and were made by leading researchers from around the world. The nominee list was shortlisted by the Editorial Board prior to the Fall PCCP Editorial Board meeting, at which, Professor Debashree Ghosh (Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science) was selected as the 2018 recipient.

Professor Ghosh develops and applies accurate quantum chemical methods to understand the interaction between light and coupled bio-chromophores. Electronic structure theory gives us unique tools to understand the energy states of the chromophores and their coupling to each other and therefore, gives us a glimpse into their photochemistry and photo-dynamics.

As part of the Lectureship, Professor Ghosh will be awarded a travel bursary of £1000 to attend and present at a leading international event in 2019, where she will be presented her Lectureship award. Professor Ghosh has also been invited to contribute a Perspective article to PCCP.

Many congratulations to Professor Ghosh on behalf of the PCCP Ownership Societies and Editorial Board.

Nominations for the 2019 PCCP Emerging Investigator Lectureship will open next summer, keep up to date with latest journal news on the blogTwitternewsletter and e-TOC alerts.

Celebrating 20 years of society collaboration in physical chemistry and chemical physics

We are proud to announce that PCCP is holding a symposium at the 7th EuCheMS Chemistry Congress on Monday 27th August entitled: “Celebrating 20 years of society collaboration in physical chemistry and chemical physics”. Join us at this special one-day symposium to mark volume 20 of PCCP being published, which aims to celebrate and encourage collaboration between nations across the physical chemistry and chemical physics community.

This unique event will feature scientific talks from distinguished PCCP Editorial Board members and the recipient of the 2017 PCCP Emerging Investigator Lectureship, Professor Ryan Steele (University of Utah), covering a variety of topics that reflect journal’s broad scope. The symposium also includes a panel discussion, led by the Chair of the PCCP Ownership Board, Dr Lene Hviid (Shell) on the importance and value of collaboration in the physical chemistry community for the benefit of research and individual careers.

The symposium will be led by Professor Seong Keun Kim, the Chair of PCCP and Dr Katie Lim, PCCP Executive Editor.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Professor Kiyotaka Asakura (Institute for Catalysis, Hokkaido University)
    “The sensitivity and resolution development of X-ray spectroscopy – smaller, faster, thinner and sparser samples”
  • Professor Piero Baglioni (University of Florence)
    “Polymer hydrogel networks and complex fluid for the conservation of modern and contemporary art”
  • Professor Luis Bañares (Universidad Complutense de Madrid)
    “Molecules under strong laser fields: Shaping ultrafast photodissociation dynamics and stereodynamics”
  • Professor Anna Krylov (University of Southern California)
    “Collaboration between theory and experiment in physical chemistry and chemical physics: The whole is larger than the sum of the parts”
  • Dr Anouk Rijs (Radboud University)
    “Peptide self-assembly; one non-covalent interaction at a time”
  • Professor David Rueda (Imperial College London)
    “How Cas9 Finds Off-Targets”
  • Professor Henry Schaefer (University of Georgia)
    “Some Chemistry Involving Hypervalent Iodine”
  • Professor Ryan Steele (The University of Utah)
    “2017 PCCP Lectureship – From Electrons to Molecular Vibrations … and Back”

Join us at the the Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool (ACC Liverpool) on Monday, 27th August for this special event. For more information, see the Full Programme.

The European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS) is holding its 7th Chemistry Congress in Liverpool, United Kingdom on 26th – 30th August 2018. The Congress is an internationally respected, large-scale event for the chemical sciences.
