We are devoted to the professional advancement of younger chemists in industry, government laboratories, undergraduate/graduate school, and post-doctoral positions.

The Northeastern Section Younger Chemists Committee (NSYCC) is part of the Northeastern Section of the American Chemical Society (NESACS), a local section whose members include chemists from Eastern Massachusetts and New Hampshire.We aim to involve younger chemists in national and local ACS programs in order to help with their transition into a professional career.

But am I a "Younger Chemist"?

USUALLY, younger chemists are ACS members under 35. But never fear! Younger chemists are also people not yet established in their careers. The criterion for being a member of this group is not age, but experience.

So join us!

Check out our Events page for ways to get involved.
