ACTF Trustees recognise the disruption that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on analytical science students. We are relaunching a disruption grant of £500 aimed at PhD students whose studies have been adversely affected by the pandemic and need additional monetary support to complete their studies.
 
Note, this fund is to support personal costs to help enable students to complete their studies for example rent, or other caring or living costs, and cannot be used for laboratory research costs. Stude

Out of the lab and into the field: Rapid on-site Raman testing for food security
There is a fully funded PhD position available for a UK student with Roy Goodacre in the Centre for Metabolomics Research, University of Liverpool.


Project Description:
Major food adulteration and contamination events occur with alarming regularity and are known to be
episodic, with the question being not IF but WHEN another large-scale food safety/integrity incident will
occur. The challenges of maintaining food secu

10216578069?profile=RESIZE_710xCAMS is an industry-led initiative aimed at promoting world-class analytical measurement science training, research, and innovation by bringing together a network of industrial and academic partners with interests in these fields. Since the launch of CAMS in 2019, the network has attracted 37 members (15 industrial and 22 academic organisations) and to date has awarded/co-funded 2 analytical chairs, 7 lectureships, 6 postdocs, 5 PhDs across the UK and Ireland with its generous funding support fr

The Learning Science Teaching Innovation Awards support innovation to positively impact teaching quality and enhance student learning.

Applicants are asked to demonstrate how they have led innovation in teaching and learning in their institution. Winners will be chosen by an expert scientific educational panel.

Possible ways you may have innovated teaching and learning:

  • Solving a problem by improving tools and methods

  • Improving teaching materials and practices

  • Developing new digital learni

  • Point of use sensors and photonics
  • Complex mixtures, separations and detection
  • Data analytics
  • Novel instrumentation or technique

Funding will be available for Lectureships, PostDocs and PhDs, noting that all bidders are expected to have secured co-funding that at least matches CAMS’s contribution (Lectureship - £200k, PostDoc - £100k and PhD -

6047464666?profile=RESIZE_400xThe Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund (ACTF) and Community for Analytical Measurement Science (CAMS) are pleased to announce this year’s CAMS Fellowship call.

Purpose and Criteria of CAMS Fellowships

The ACTF-CAMS partnership provides funding for a range of initiatives to support the development of analytical measurement science talent. The objective of the ACTF is to promote, assist and extend the science and study of analytical chemistry, and of all questions relating to the analysis, nature and

Well, what a difference a few weeks make! I hope this finds you and yours well and coping with our flexible working revolution in parallel with home schooling, social distancing, excessive gardening and interesting hairstyles!

More than ever, the importance of community is central in everyone’s minds and this is increasingly true for the measurement sector globally. In recent weeks we have heard senior government officials comment on how testing is going to be important for a long time ahead and

UKRI invites applications for individuals from any discipline wishing to spend up to 36 months (full or part time) on secondment in the biomedical sciences sector.

CAMS Fellowship Awards 2019

The CAMS fellowship awards for 2019 have been announced. The purpose of the award is to assist early career analytical chemists within 5 years of their first full-time junior academic appointment at a UK or Irish HEI to establish their own independent analytical science research identity. Congratulations to this year’s recipients:

  • Dr Alice Bowen, University of Manchester, Optical control of spin-labels for dipolar EPR of multi-spin systems.

 

  • Dr Zoe Hall, Imperial C
