Professor Erick Carreira
@ETH Zürich, Switzerland
Professor Carreira will formally assume the JACS editorship at the beginning of January 2021. His appointment as Editor-in-Chief of JACS follows an extensive public search that saw over 100 nominations from across the chemistry community. In addition to his work as an Editor, Professor Carreira is a professor of chemistry in the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences, as well as a member of the Competence Center for Systems Physiology and Metabolic Diseases, at ETH Zürich, where he has taught since 1998. A self-described “generalist,” Professor Carreira’s current research focuses on a variety of multidisciplinary fields, including natural products total synthesis, synthetic methods, and catalysis to prepare molecules with asymmetric bond construction. He is co-founder of three start-up companies and has been involved in the development of several chemistry education software tools. pubs.acs.org/jacs
Professor Christopher W. Jones
William R. McLain Chair and Professor of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering @Georgia Institute of Technology (GeorgiaTech), USA
