Job Lecture Series

A bequest from the Job family of St. John's has enabled the department to finance a lecture series. Each Job Lecturer is a distinguished chemist of international repute who is invited to join the department for one to two weeks. In addition to the formal lectures this gives faculty and students the opportunity to meet intellectually and socially with some of the greatest chemists of our day.
