To apply for a postdoctoral position in the Stockdill lab, please send a formal cover letter detailing the reasons for your interest, a CV with no photo, a brief research summary (2-3 pages), and 3 signed, sealed letters of recommendation by paper mail to the address listed on the “About Jenn” page. Incomplete and e-mailed applications will not be considered.
Students in the Stockdill lab can expect to gain invaluable synthetic chemistry skills, including the ability to propose and execute sophisticated approaches to challenging small molecule and protein targets. They will become familiar with a range of analytical techniques such as HPLC, GC, NMR, mass spectroscopy, and circular dichroism. The lab environment will be collegial, but adventurous. Students will be guided and carefully trained, yet given the freedom to develop and explore their own ideas. There will be ample opportunity for collaborative interactions, with the courage of the student as the only limit to the potential techniques and topics that can be learned. Finally, emphasis will be given to developing writing and presentation skills in addition to laboratory skills, so that each student will become a careful, contemplative, and creative scientist. Students who have already been admitted to the graduate program are encouraged to email me or stop by my office to chat. Students who would like to apply to join the group must first apply to the Chemistry Department’s Graduate Program! For more information, click here.
Undergraduate students are welcome to pursue research in the lab! Please email Jenn to discuss potential appointments. Include a list of relevant completed coursework, including the grades received, as well as your planned graduation date and career goals. I do not accept students for less than 3 semesters of research. **The earliest available positions for undergraduates will be Summer Term 2018. You may arrange in advance to join the lab at that time.**
