    Graduate Level-open
    One opening in NITROGEN FIXATION: Motivated students are sought to work on rhizopine syntheses. In recent years, we have studied the mechanism of nitrogen fixation in collaboration with Prof. Silvia Rossbach in the Biological Sciences Department. This project focuses on the conversion of phenol derivatives to 3-O-methyl-scyllo-inosamines. Students should be familiar with common synthesis tools such as the use of TLC, spectroscopic analysis, and reaction setups.

    Graduate Level-open
    One opening in CHEMICAL SENSOR DESIGN: Motivated students are sought for our nanotechnology project. This project combines organic synthesis with inorganic, analytical, and supramolecular chemistry. It focuses on the preparation of specific targets, including cryptands, that will bind to metals and display fluorescence. Qualified students should be familiar with common synthesis tools such as the use of TLC, spectroscopic analysis, and reaction setups and workup procedures.

    Undergraduate Level-closed
    One opening in MICROBIOLOGICAL STUDIES: Motivated students are sought for our investigation of the biological activity of 1,10-phenanthroline derivatives. Qualified students should be familiar with common synthesis tools such as the use of TLC, spectroscopic analysis, and reaction setup procedures.

    Undergraduate Level-closed
    One opening in NANOMATERIAL/REDUCTION RESEARCH: Motivated students are sought for our nanotechnology project that probes the use of specific catalysts for reduction, hydrogenation, and hydrogenolysis reactions in collaboration with Prof. S. Obare in the Department of Chemistry. Qualified students should be familiar with common synthesis tools such as the use of TLC, spectroscopic analysis, and reaction setups and workup procedures.
