The inaugural ACES Program will be held July 19th, 2014. This program is planned to run several times per year, focused on local students grades 7-11. Designed by graduate students in the Chemistry Department at the University of Pennsylvania, this program is meant to introduce students to the sciences with a hands-on approach.

Joe Subotnik Promoted to Associate Professor

Joe Subotnik has been promoted to Associate Professor with tenure. Joe's group focuses on three different areas in chemical physics: electron and energy transfer, molecular conduction, and electronic structure theory with an emphasis on excited states. Joe joined the department in 2010.

Jeff Saven Promoted to Professor

Jeffery Saven has been promoted to the rank of Professor. Jeff's group uses primarily theory and computation to study biomolecules, polymers, and condensed phase systems. Most of the research involves the application of statistical mechanics to liquids and macromolecules. Jeff joined the Chemistry Department in 1997.

New Masters Program in Chemistry

On April 1, the College of Liberal and Professional Studies (LPS) at Penn officially opened applications for its newest master’s degree: the Master of Chemical Sciences. The program, the first of its kind in the Ivy League, offers current and aspiring professionals in the chemical sciences a path to build their expertise in a compact time frame.


Vice Dean for Professional and Liberal Education Nora Lewis says the program has been in demand for some time.
