The JST is looking for new students to take on leadership positions for the 2020-2021 academic year! The term runs from July 2020 – July 2021. Anyone can apply, you do not need to be an LSO.
Some reasons to get involved with JST are:
- Safety is extremely important in any lab
- Help develop and implement safety programs to make the Chemistry department better
- Work with people from various backgrounds (faculty, staff, DRS, other safety teams)
- Won’t take up much of your time! The JST board meets about once every 2 weeks for 1 hour.
Thank you to all our attendees who joined us for our Zoom May LSO meeting! We discussed important safety reminders for when researchers are allowed to work in the lab within social distancing guidelines.
Please see the slides for more information, including links to information about COVID-19 resources posted on the JST website. May 2020 LSO Meeting Slides
Also, the JST is looking for new students who are interested in serving on the JST board! You do not have to be an LSO to be a part of JST. Please check out the slides for more details and email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions!
The COVID-19 Resources tab has been updated! This page now contains procedures from the Department of Chemistry on returning to research activities and a letter from outgoing Department Head Martin Gruebele and incoming Department Head Catherine Murphy expanding on these procedures. This page also contains the anonymous reporting form so any violations to these procedures can be reported. These submissions will be regularly communicated to and reviewed by the Chemistry Department.
If you have any questions or concerns about these procedures, the anonymous reporting form, or other information on the COVID-19 Resources tab please contact the JST board at email@example.com!
Check out the COVID-19 resources tab on the JST homepage! This tab contains information on where to find the DRS COVID-19 training, other training and resources related to COVID-19 from DRS, and information on how to safely conduct essential research during this time. Information on this page will be updated as it becomes available.
