Apr 26, 2012 – Evolution of a Scientist Lecture Series – A Chemist with a Badge

This unique free lecture series showcases regional chemists from academia, industry and the private sector and invite them to share their unique journeys and detail how they arrived at where they are today.

The New Jersey Younger Chemists Committee held the second installment in the Evolution of a Scientist lecture series at Rutgers University on April 26, 2012.

Our speaker was Danielle Sherwood, Ph.D. who shared her journey from college, to graduate school, as well as the application and training process to achieve her current position as a Special Agent with the FBI. Danielle offered advice and insight for younger chemists who may be interested in a career with the FBI, whether in the crime lab or as a special agent.

In addition to sharing the ins and outs of Quantico and the FBI application process, Danielle shared with the group how scientific research and knowledge, both in industry and academia, can be targets for foreign intelligence services.

We would like to thank Danielle for her insights and the NJACS for making this event possible., Check our website for information on our next lecture mid-November.
