Molecular Medicine PhD Due 1/15/16

Dear Student,

I hope your first semester of the year ended well. I imagine you’re working on your graduate school applications. I wanted to encourage you to apply to our Molecular Medicine PhD Program at Case Western Reserve University. Our program’s main focus is to integrate medical training into a PhD program. Every student in the program has clinical co-mentor who oversees an independent study clinical experience during year 2 of the program.  Otherwise, our program is oriented to training bench based scientists who can excel in translational research. After completing the program, you will receive a degree from Case Western Reserve University. Your CV will show a prestigious Case Western Reserve University degree and your research conducted at Cleveland Clinic. As you may know, this will set you up for many opportunities as you continue on with your career. I also wanted to add that all students receive free tuition, a $28,500 stipend, core textbooks, student health insurance, fitness membership, and a laptop. Our application deadline is 1/15/2016. Decisions regarding your application status will be mailed out quickly following the deadline. We will host an interview weekend on February 18-20th 2016. I hope to see your application and please let us know if you need any assistance.  You can learn more about the program at http://www.lerner.ccf.org/molecmed/phd/admissions/. Have a terrific holiday season!

If you’re not graduating this May, please fill out the following form to stay up to date regarding our program.

K-12 Science Teaching Jobs | Southern Teachers Agency

SOUTHERN TEACHERS . . . because your students deserve the best

 K-12 Teaching Jobs for Chemistry Majors

Southern Teachers helps candidates find teaching jobs in hundreds of private/independent schools around the South.

While we already have a surprising number of science jobs listed by schools for the 2016-17 school year, we also have several good mid-year positions that have opened up for a variety of reasons.

If any of your talented chemistry majors are graduating this December, please consider forwarding this message to them.

It’s important to understand that that teacher certification is not necessarily required for these jobs, so please encourage your smart chemistry majors (and minors!) who have the potential to be servant-leaders in a classroom to apply.

Thank you for your consideration and we wish you all the best for the holidays!

REU in Evolutionary Chemistry

The Center for Chemical Evolution (CCE) is currently recruiting students for our 10-week, paid summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. We are seeking undergraduate students at all levels that have an interest in chemical sciences and research who are also U.S. Citizens or permanent residents. Students are paired with some of the leading research professors in a variety of chemistry disciplines. Interdisciplinary research areas include the study of chemical evolution and the chemistry associated with the origins of life.

The Center for Chemical Evolution is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Center for Chemical Innovation. Centers under this program are focused on productive collaborations to answer long term, fundamental challenges in chemistry. The CCE is working to understand how life may have emerged from chemistry.

The summer program dates vary depending on the adviser chosen. Possible research locations include Scripps Research Institute (San Diego, CA), Georgia Tech (Atlanta, GA), Furman University (Greenville, SC), and the University of South Florida (Tampa, FL).

The application deadline is Feb. 15, 2016. Participants are assigned to a research mentor, and are paid a minimum $4500 stipend in addition to a travel allowance; on-campus housing is provided.
Women, underrepresented minorities, and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply.
