3rd Canadian Magnetism Meeting will be held in Calgary on May 25th, right
before the CSC kicks off. This day-long meeting is intended to allow researcher
in all fields of magnetism to share their recent research developments, and
network with other members of the Canadian magnetism community.
All interested are welcome to attend. In order to help organization, please send an email to confirm if you and your group will attend (contact information below).
We have a lineup of invited speakers covering various areas of magnetism: Daniel Gamelin (U Washington), Daniel Leznoff (SFU), Natia Frank (UVic), Laurie Thompson (MUN), TK Sham (Western), Kathryn Preuss (Guelph), and Arthur Mar (UofA).
There will be a poster session for students with best poster awards. We will be accepting email submissions of abstracts (200-word abstract, 1 picture) until May 7th.
There is no registration fee for this meeting.
More info can be found at:
Visit often, the website will get regular updates in the coming weeks.
All those interested to attend and/or to submit an abstract, please email Robin Arseneault at [raarsene "at" ucalgary.ca]
We are looking forward to seeing all of you in Calgary.

2009 special issue of Canadian Journal of Chemistry is dedicated to
Professor Tom Ziegler (University of Calgary, web
a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Theoretical Inorganic Chemistry, one of
the pioneers of density functional theory (DFT). Prof. Ziegler has made many
important contributions to the development of DFT calculations of NMR parameters.
We encourage you to read two wonderful tributes to Prof. Ziegler written by Arvi Rauk, Heiko Jacobsen and Tom Woo, and to browse through many excellent research papers by world-leading experts in computational chemistry.
This special CJC issue is devided in two parts:
Part 1 of 2 is now finalized (volume 87, number 7, July 2009)
Part 2 of 2 is currently being filled (volume 87, number 10, October 2009)

Department of Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry at the University of Calgary invites applications for a Manager of our Instrumentation Facility.
The appointee will have responsibilities managing the operation and maintenance of the Departmental Instrumentation Facility which includes a variety of chemical/spectroscopic techniques (e.g. NMRs, Mass Specs., EPR, FT-IR, UV-Vis, CD, Elemental Analyzer, polarimeters), scheduling of instrument usage, supervision of technical staff, manage the Facility budget, provide assistance in troubleshooting/diagnosing problems that arise, train users of the Facility, assist departmental research groups in conducting specific experiments, assist in future planning of instrument upgrades and new instrument acquisitions, maintain a high level of expertise and knowledge in the field of Chemical/Spectroscopic instrumentation techniques, assist Faculty members with the writing of grants and proposals.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in chemistry or the equivalent, hands on experience in the operation and maintenance of NMR and/or Mass Specs. Some experience in troubleshooting and basic understanding of electronics would be desirable. The appointee will be expected to remain abreast of current developments with instrumentation.
Details on the Department of Chemistry can be found at http://www.ucalgary.ca/chem/
Applications will be reviewed commencing September 15, 2009 and will be considered until the position is filled. Qualified applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, statement of managing philosophy, evidence of experience in the operation and maintenance of instruments, and arrange for at least three letters of reference to be sent to:
