TALKING HEADS
CALENDAR
Dear friends at KILU,
December has passed by very quickly and we are soon entering the Holiday
season. On Tuesday this week we saw Gunnar Karlström, from Theoretical chemistry, present this year’s Nobel laureates in chemistry. One of the
laureates, Arieh Warshel, will visit Lund next week and on Tuesday give a
lecture with the title “Multiscale Modelling of Protein Functions” at 3 pm.
at Medicon Village. We note that this was the third year in a row the Nobel
laureates in chemistry were presented by scientists from KILU, which says
something about the strength of the activities in our department.
13 DECEMBER
Perhaps you are trying to decide what presents to buy for the coming
holiday celebrations? May we suggest a book with chemistry connections:
“Periodic Tales” by Hugh Aldersey-Williams which, as the title implies, is a
fascinating journey through the periodic table.

MORE ABOUT THE NOBEL PRIZE IN CHEMISTRY
Who is responsible for the selection of candidates
for the Chemistry Prize?
Well, it is the Nobel Committee for Chemistry and as
many as three members of the committee comes from
KILU! READ MORE ABOUT THE COMMITTEE
And the members also present the laureates and their
work at the official announcement ceremony.

WATCH THE ANNOUNCEMENT where Sven Lidin and
Gunnar Karlström participate and explain why this
year’s prize ”for the development of multiscale models for complex chemical
systems” is so important.
After the announcement SVEN LIDIN WAS INTERVIEWED by freelance journalist Joanna Rose about the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

Open Seminar: ESS and MAX IV – new opportunities in formulation research
Increasing societal demands for environmentally friendly, sustainable, innovative
and increasingly complex chemical products and production processes represent
great challenges to be met by future advanced formulation science. At the same
time, advanced experimental methods are emerging that can contribute to meeting these challenges. In Sweden, the future large-scale facilities MAXIV and ESS
will provide new opportunities for advanced formulation science. The purpose
of this half-day seminar, featuring a series of expert lectures and a concluding
discussion, is to highlight these opportunities.

Post doc in physical chemistry
Research at the division of physical chemistry deals with surface and colloid science with strong links between experiment and theory. This area is approached
with a broad perspective ranging from basic considerations of intermolecular
interaction and their manifestations in condensed systems to practical consequences in industry and medicine. First day of employment: 2014-02-01

KEMIST NYA FRAMTIDSYRKET
Nej, men titta vem som döljer sig bakom lucka 10! Är det inte en
viss professor Turner? Öppna luckan vetja! Och enligt ryktena ska
även Estelle Larsson finnas bakom någon lucka.
I alla verksamheter där kemiska ämnen eller produkter framställs,
utvecklas eller används behövs kemister. Kemister är experter
på laborativa analyser och undersökningar samt arbetar med
produkt- och processutveckling, försäljning eller miljövård.
Kemister kommer att bli mer attraktiva på arbetsmarknaden inom
den kommande femårsperioden.
