Congratulations to Professor Gregory Fu
Awarded Research Corporation Grant!
Professor Greg Fu is one of 18 young faculty members just named a Cottrell Scholar by the Research Corporation, a private foundation in Tucson, Arizona. This honor carries a $50,000 award and rewards beginning faculty members who excel at both teaching and research. There were 112 applicants for the 1996 awards, which are considered among the most prestigious fellowships for beginning faculty in the sciences. They are named for Frederick G. Cottrell, a chemist who created the Research Corporation and endowed it with the patent rights to his invention, the Cottrell precipitator.
Congratulations to David and Jennifer Hays on the birth of their son!
David and Jennifer Hays announce the birth of Samuel Scott Hays on Saturday, May 18th at 7 lb. 3 oz and 21 inches. David is a grad student with Professor Greg Fu.
- Tufts University, School of Medicine, Boston, MA: Is recruiting for a research assistant in the Division of Geographic Medicine and Infectious Diseases at the TUNEMC. This is a full-time position in a research laboratory studying basic virologic aspects of nutrition and exercise in HIV. The candidate should have a basic knowledge of biologic principals and a B.A. or B.S. or more advanced degree. Experience with sterile techniques and tissue culture is required. Experience with ELISA, RIA is desirable. Please call Dr. Paul R. Skolnik at (617) 636-7008 or fax your cv to him at (617) 636-3216.
- Pharmaceutical Peptides, Inc., Cambridge, MA: A major biopharmaceutical research and development company using proprietary biological and chemical combinatorial techniques to discover new drugs, seeks two chemists; one a Ph.D. Bio-organic medicinal chemist and one MS./BS. organic chemist. The Ph.D. position will contribute to the research and development of peptidomimetic analogs of their lead compounds while the MS/BS chemist will complement their existing chemistry team by contributing to the design and synthesis of analogs of lead compounds and intermediates for peptide chemistry. Please submit resume by mail or fax to: Human Resource Code (MF1 for Ph.D. position and MF2 for MS/BS position) Pharmaceutical Peptides Inc. One Hampshire Street, 5th floor, Cambridge, MA 02139 or fax too(617) 494-8496.
