It’s the last ITEHP Seminar of the Fall 2013 semester and you won’t want to miss it!

WHAT: 13th Annual North Carolina PhD Career Fair
WHEN: Thurs Nov 21, 12-4 pm
WHERE: The Friday Center, UNC-Chapel Hill (http://www.fridaycenter.unc.edu/directions/index.htm)
REGISTER: https://sites.google.com/site/ncmastersphdfair/ . Postdocs who register by 5 pm Tues Nov 19 will receive a pre-printed nametag (first and last name) at the Fair.
The North Carolina PhD Fair is a collaboration between Duke, NCSU, UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Charlotte, UNC-Greensboro, and Wake Forest University to showcase their advanced degree candidates in all disciplines. Attending employers hire PhDs with expertise in the sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities.
Dr. Heather Stapleton, an ITEHP faculty member, will be giving a presentation this afternoon (Thursday, November 7) and 4:40PM in LSRC A247. The focus of her talk is on TSCA (Toxic Substances Control Act, 1976) while asking how well the system has worked to manage chemicals in commerce. She will be using flame retardant chemicals as an example of how TSCA has failed and will be exploring the potential fire safety benefits versus the health risks of such chemicals.
We’re nearing the end of our Fall 2013 ITEHP Seminar Series, so join us this Friday as Heather Patisaul, Ph.D., from North Carolina State University discusses “Brain Chemistry: Environmental Influences on Neuroendocrine Development and Behavior”.
We’ll see you this Friday at Noon in LSRC A247!
