This one was tougher than I expected, but I've thought of one...

Another 3-letter word that is too short to post so I have to add more babble to be able to post

Hi

That was all I could think of. Ah well, it works.

Unless someone out there knows better, which is highly likely, I don't think there is a word that starts with i and ends with j.
In fact very few words end in j, at least in English.

Closest I could get is Hajj - the pilgrimage that Muslims make to Mecca.

Somebody prove me wrong?

I'm not going to prove you wrong. After all, I've seen how smart you are with words.

Jack

I shouldn't have to tell you that I'm not referring to the name.

Mean

Not the smartest word, but it should suffice.

Well, it isn't a competition of who can come up with the most advance vocabulary.

Back to the scientific theme

Neutrino

Any word is a good word if it fits the criteria. I thought 'Hi' was truly inspired!

I'm really not trying to display this by posting this word but...

Oneupmanship

I can't help myself - words are my hobby.

POQ

I don't think there is a word that fits in here, so I used an acronym. POQ has many different meanings but I like "pee (or another version of this word) off quick". I just didn't want the game to end. I have a Q..R word but it's not my turn anymore :-(

There are probably several, but let's go with

Quarter

Very inventive using an acronym ris - well done for keeping us going!

I don't mean to interrupt this, but I was actually looking for an I-J word. The closest I could find, and this probably doesn't count since it's a name of an area, is:

Ij

Ij is an area in Amsterdam, somewhere. Anyways, sorry to disturb the process, and back to Sam's Crow's clue.

Well done oh-boy! Very inventive of you.

There are such clever people here - lateral thinkers. Wonderful.

Now onward with...

I've been thinking about this next one for a while, and this is the closest I've been able to come up with.

Univ.

If anyone can think of an actual word that is U-V, please don't hesitate to replace mine.

You sort of said it yourself - I don't think there is an actual word, but since we've had acronyms before as in POQ, then how about U-V for Ultra- Violet as in U-V rays?
