NSF-REU Summer Undergraduate Program at Baylor University

DateJanuary 29 - August 15, 2015
LocationDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry
DescriptionThe Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Baylor University is pleased to accept applications for a 10-week summer research program running from June 1 th to August 7th, 2015. This is an instrumentation-intensive program designed to train participants in the most powerful research tools available. Research projects at the frontiers of many fields of chemistry are available, including the synthesis and analysis of metal complexes, bio-inorganic chemistry of HNO, preparation of enzyme inhibitors, spectroscopy in cryogenic liquids, the synthesis of natural products and enzyme inhibitors, the use of ultrahigh resolution mass spectroscopy in biochemistry, solid-state NMR applied to biochemistry and geochemistry, and computational studies of dye-sensitized solar cells. The program will include several half-day workshops on advanced instrumentation, weekly seminars on research topics, ethics and career development, a field trip and several social activities. Each participant will receive a $4,000 stipend plus travel, housing and meal costs. Applications are accepted online, but apply by March 1st to receive full consideration. We encourage applications from students from underrepresented groups, veterans and those attending institutions with limited research opportunities, including community college students who are transitioning to a four-year school to complete a chemistry or biochemistry degree. For information or questions, contact Barbara Rauls, Program Administrative Assistant, at barbara_rauls@baylor.edu or Charles Garner, Program Director, at charles_garner@baylor.edu.
