Exceptional opportunities
abound for UD Chemistry &
Biochemistry PhD students

Dear Prof. Barkley,

I am writing to make you aware of the outstanding opportunities available for PhD studies in Chemistry and Biochemistry at theUniversity of Delaware. Located in in the heart of the mid-Atlantic region, our department has been a historical leader in the molecular sciences. Our rich tradition is highlighted by the award of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Prof. Richard F. Heck, who was a long-standing member of our faculty. Our department has continued to build upon this legacy, having assembled a dynamic and energetic faculty working at the cutting-edge of chemical and biochemical research.

Our department is home to thirty vibrant research groups spanning all areas of chemistry and biochemistry. Our research places major emphasis on collaborative and interdisciplinary inquiry, and is supported by an impressive range of fully staffed state-of-the-art instrumentation labs and support shops. In addition, we host two NIH Centers for Biomedical Research Excellence (COBREs), as well as an NIH Chemical and Biology Interface (CBI) training program.

As a measure of our current strength, research expenditures within our department are approaching $10 million annually, with more than 180 full-time PhD students. All PhD students are supported by a highly competitive stipend that is guaranteed for five years, allowing our students to comfortably focus on their research and education.

I believe our department offers many advantages to students looking to pursue advanced studies in the chemical sciences. I encourage you to share this email with any students considering PhD studies in either chemistry or biochemistry.

A link to our graduate brochure can be found here.

More information, as well as links to the online application forms, can be found at www.chem.udel.edu. The priority application deadline is February 1st. Application fee waivers are available for applicants from underrepresented backgrounds.

Best regards,

Donald Watson
Associate Chair for Graduate Studies

Nomination request: St. Jude Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences Symposium

On behalf of the St. Jude Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, we invite you to nominate your best students to participate in the St. Jude National Undergraduate Research Symposium (NURS) to be held June 14-17, 2017 at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. This competitive academic and professional development event allows undergraduate students from U.S. institutions to present their own research, in addition to learning about the cutting-edge research and facilities at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The goal of the symposium is to showcase St. Jude as a premier research institution and to provide St. Jude Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences recruitment information to top undergraduate students.

Nominees must be U.S. citizens and currently Juniors or Seniors who are planning to attend graduate school but have yet to commit to a program. The reference form (attached) must be submitted to me by noon CST on Wednesday, March 1, 2017. The Graduate School will cover Symposium-related expenses for students who are invited to attend.
