See attached a Job Opportunity in the Charleston area that may be a good fit for a soon-to-be or recent grad!

I graduated from CofC in Biochem, minor in Environmental and Sustainability Studies (shout out Dr. Mullaugh on the awesome Environmental Chem class!) in 2017 and have worked at Kemira ever since, currently in Raw Material Coordinating and Sourcing. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me directly, through DM or email [email protected]. I'm fine to chat and help you decide whether to submit a formal application! However - we are already scheduling interviews so the sooner the better. Start time can be after 2022 spring graduation.
Our SSM Dean stopped by Bosch yesterday to take ownership of a Thermo Fisher Scientific FTIR for our Department of Chem and Biochem at the College of Charleston. Thank you so much Bosch USA for supporting STEM programs at College of Charleston. We send graduates to top Ph.D. Chemistry programs in the U.S. thanks to undergraduate research and training on such instruments.
Addie Barnes (BS Chemistry, BA History, ‘23) is hard at work in the lab. She is running 25 parallel polymerization kinetics experiments to determine the best ratio of reagent and organic catalyst to use in her polymerization reaction.

Dr. Kate Mullaugh, along with students from Chem and Biochem at the College of Charleston, participated in the Global Climate Strike as part of the CofC Alliance for Planet Earth - APE event on the Cistern Yard today.
Lane Kenan is working in Dr. Michael Giuliano’s lab to develop small peptide models of hydrophobic collapse, one of the critical initial components of protein folding that is often challenging to observe directly. These models will help better understand a fundamental stage of protein folding and inform the design of peptides that activate cell-surface receptors. She is studying these model peptides using two-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).

Lane is pictured here purifying peptides using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Her work was supported by SSM/SC-INBRE funds and an SC-INBRE grant to Dr. Giuliano.

Accepted Abstract for the International Symposium on Molecular Spectroscopy in June ...
MICROWAVE SPECTROSCOPY AND STRUCTURE DETERMINATION OF ORGANOSILICON COMPOUNDS: A
CELEBRATION OF A DECADE OF COLLABORATION
NATHAN A. SEIFERT, Department of Chemistry, University of New Haven, West Haven, CT, USA;
THOMAS M. C. McFADDEN, GAMIL A GUIRGIS, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, College of
Charleston, Charleston, SC, USA; NICOLE MOON, AMANDA DUERDEN, G. S. GRUBBS II, Department
of Chemistry, Missouri University of Science and Technology, Rolla, MO, USA.
In this reflective presentation, we will discuss a fruitful, decade long collaboration between the speaker and Prof. Gamil
Guirgis at the College of Charlestona and Gamil’s now distinct contributions to organosilicon chemistry. In particular, we
will focus on Gamil’s facilitation of undergraduate students and young scientists in their study of the chemical and spec-
troscopic properties of these molecules, as well as his use of microwave and infrared spectroscopy (and spectroscopists!)
as essential methods for chemical analysis.
Our discussion will primarily focus on recent microwave studies, such as silylcyclohex-2-ene, 1,1-
difluorosilylcyclohex-2-ene and cyclopentylsilane, whose spectra were recently acquired in the Grubbs lab at Missouri
S&T. However, given the timely nature of celebrating a decade of collaboration between Gamil and the speaker, we will
highlight the history and past results of Gamil’s collaborations with microwave spectroscopists in the past decade, which
stretches across multiple laboratories and research groups, many of which have been featured at ISMS in past years.b
Finally, we use this story as motivation to discuss the collaborative interface between the “spectroscopist” with the
“chemist”. As microwave spectroscopy continues to climb up the formidable but traversable mountain towards mainstream
chemical applicability, Gamil’s work with microwave spectroscopists offers a unique and compelling example of how
microwave spectroscopy and spectroscopists can provide (and have provided) essential services for those interested in
chemical synthesis.
