Congratulations To Bing Ji and Natasha M. Kablaoui
Dr. Bing Ji a postdoc from Professor Field's group recently won the University of Iowa's D.C. Spriestersbach Dissertation Prize for 1995 in recognition of the excellence of his doctoral dissertation titled, "Alignment Effects in State-Selected Photodissociation Dynamics and Long-Range Interactions of Alkali Dimers Studies by All-Optical Multiple Resonance Spectroscopy." The dissertation will be entered in the national competition for the 1995 Council of Graduate Schools/University Microfilms International Dissertation Prize.
Natasha M. Kablaoui a graduate student in Professor Buchwald's group was recently selected to receive a $15,000 Graduate Fellowship from the Division of Organic Chemistry of the American Chemical Society sponsored by SmithKline Beecham. She will travel to the 1997 National Organic Symposium to be held in June of 1997 and has been asked to present a poster based on her research.
For more information on the opportunities listed below, please check the blue binders in Headquarters.
- The US Army Corps of Engineers in the Lower Mississippi Valley Division, Vicksburg, VA: has two positions open for those interested in a biologist and a physical scientist position. These positions require the ability to develop, plan and execute environmental type research. They also require fundraising ability for research programs and supervision of professional staff.
- TAD Technical Services in Framingham, MA: has a position open in Semiconductor Device Processing for an applicant familiar with furnaces, low pressure chemical vapor deposition in regard to the fabrication of silicon wafers. Applicants must possess a BS or MS in Chem/EE or Physics.
- Pharmaceutical Peptides, Inc. of Cambridge, MA: has a position open in their chemistry group for a research assistant to help in the development of chemistry to support research programs. Experience using organic and aqueous media is desirable but not necessary. Depending upon qualifications, positions are available for full-time and part-time work.
- Printing Developments, Inc., Racine, WI: has an opening available for a research and development chemist to work out of their manufacturing facility in Racine. The successful candidate will have a M.S. in Polymer Science with a minimum two years of industrial experience in a laboratory with experience in physical chemistry, aspects of polymers, coatings and rheology.
- Animal Care Taker, Metasyn, Inc. Cambridge, MA: Invites applications for a part-time position (20 hours), no experience necessary to provide husbandry for rabbits, rodents and assisting with some experiments. Flexible hours as well as some Holidays.
- The College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA: is seeking applicants for a tenure-track position in Organic Chemistry at the Assistant Professor level. Applicants must have a Ph.D. and the ability and desire to teach courses in organic chemistry and to conduct and publish research with undergraduate and Masters students. The position will begin in the fall of 1996, review of applications begins October 15th, 1995.
- Wayne State University, Detroit, MI: is seeking to fill faculty positions in the areas of organic and experimental analytical and physical chemistry. The postions will most likely be filled at the assistant professor level.
- The University of Missouri-Columbia,Columbia, MO: announces the opening of a search for candidates to fill tenure-track faculty appointments in analytical chemistry for the fall of 1996. They are seeking individuals with research interests that encompass materials characterization or whose interests include a biological component.
- Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA: has four open faculty positions; one in environmental chemistry the rest in all areas of biochemistry and chemistry for the 1996-1997 academic year.
- The California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA: invites applications for Postdoctoral Scholar appointments in the various fields of chemical biology, chemical physics, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, theoretical chemistry, electrochemistry, and structural chemistry. Interested applicants should check the listing in Chemistry Headquarters and write directly to the faculty member they are interested in working with.
- The University of Massachusetts at Amherst: Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering invites applicants to apply for a one-year position focusing on modeling molecular sorption, diffusion and catalysis in zeolites and other nanoporous materials.
