Summer Undergraduate Research

The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Baylor University is pleased to accept applications for a 10-week summer research program running from May 30th to August 4th, 2017. 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. This 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 housing and some meal costs. If selected some travel cost provided. Applications are accepted online until the February 15th deadline. 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. All applicants must be US citizens or permanent resident.
