The Smalley-Curl Institute (SCI) was created in 2015 from the merger of two of Rice multidisciplinary research institutes, the Richard E. Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology and the Rice Quantum Institute. SCI is the home of the Applied Physics Graduate Program (APP) and of several endowed postdoctoral research fellowships. It participates in establishing strong industrial collaborations, and takes part in novel educational and outreach programs. The Institute assists its members in forging new, cross-cutting and interdisciplinary research areas, and in seeking new means of supporting their work. Research in SCI encompasses advanced materials, quantum magnetism, plasmonics and photonics, biophysics and bioengineering, ultracold atom physics, condensed matter and chemical physics, and all aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology. The events specialist provides event planning services for the SCI with minimum supervision from the SCI executive director, the associate director and the APP chair. Events include conferences, workshops, symposia, lectures, site visits, receptions, dinners, and other meetings/events as requested, including events related to the APP. The events host local, state, national, and foreign participants, and attendees are from academia, government, and industry. The events specialist will arrange event advertising, create agendas, correspond with guest speakers and other visitors, make catering and audio/visual arrangements, managing and maintaining events on the web-site. The events specialist will also maintain the alumni and membership databases, and work with the institute administrator to monitor the budget and process event expenditures.
