AG JLC VOLUNTARY WORKING GROUP OF THE LCHG

AG JLC is a voluntary working group which represents young food chemists and their interests in all educational and professional aspects and which offers them a possibility to network outside of their university.

Our organisation has been growing steadily since 1996 and has now around 250 members at 15 locations. No matter if you are studying, doing your PJ or your doctoral studies – anyone can join the Young Food Chemists. Even after starting your career, you can still stay a member for up to three years. You will get to know lots of new people outside your university and also gain access to our established information network.

To mark our 20th anniversary, we have published a chronic. Have a look!

How do you benefit from being a member of AG JLC?

You get to know new people outside your university and gain access to our established information network. Our internal forum will always keep you up to date on the most important topics and you can directly communicate with all the other members of the AG. As a member of GDCh, you benefit from various offers in the areas of career service, conferences and further education, magazines, scholarships, mentoring and much more. Every month, the magazine “Nachrichten aus der Chemie” will be delivered to your doorstep. If you also join the LChG, you will additionally receive the magazine “Lebensmittelchemie” six times per year. The magazines write about current topics in our sector and you can find out more about research topics from other institutes.
