How to sail smoothly from academia to industry

April 21, 2018

How to sail smoothly from academia to industry Teamwork is key. Perhaps this should be emphasized more in graduate training? #Jobs QT:{{”
“When immuno-oncologist Martijn Bijker decided to move from academia to industry, he asked a friend to review his CV. His friend — who had worked in the pharmaceutical sector for two decades — told him to relegate his lists of publications, posters and presentations to the back of the document. The focus, he said, should be on teamwork skills and the ability to perform the job requirements.”

Multistep nucleation of nanocrystals in aqueous solution : Nature Chemistry : Nature Research

Multistep nucleation of nanocrystals in…solution Creation of Au-Au pair, expelling water, drives cluster formation

To explain how the gold-rich aqueous phase forms and breaks down in Figures 1A and 2A, we
performed ab-initio calculations of a hydrated gold atom pair (Figure 4). This hydrated atom pair
becomes ionized when brought closer together: the left gold atom plus two nearby water molecules
form a linear cationic coordination complex, [Au(H2O)2]+1, while the right gold atom becomes an
anion surrounded by a simple hydration shell. Other (square planar and linear) complexes involving
chloride and hydroxide ligands may also participate, depending on pH (26, 33) (Section SI2). For
nanoclusters to form inside the gold-rich aqueous phase, pairs of gold atoms within it must be partially
dehydrated. In our calculations (Figure 4), this dehydration is delayed by a 7.6 kcal/mol (12.9 kBT)
energy barrier required to breakdown the linear cationic complex (close to the gold anion).
