2 Year Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Department of Chemistry at Smith College invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in chemistry beginning July 1, 2019. Under the supervision of Professor Kevin Shea, this postdoctoral fellowship offers a combined teaching and research position at a selective liberal arts college. The successful candidate will conduct independent research with the focus aligned to Prof. Shea’s research programs in synthetic organic chemistry and chemical education. One area of research is focused on expanding the scope of transformations involving cobalt-complexed alkynes. His group also synthesizes novel anesthetics and neurolenin D analogs used in collaboration with two colleagues in Smith’s Biological Sciences Department. Chemical education research centers on the use of technology and current literature in intro organic lecture and implementation of semester-long course-based research projects in intro organic labs. Teaching responsibilities are two courses per year, to include contributions to the department’s intermediate and advanced offerings in organic chemistry. A Ph.D. in organic chemistry or a closely related field is required. A commitment to excellence in teaching and undergraduate research is essential.


The Department of Chemistry has state-of-the-art facilities and instrumentation, and its faculty is dedicated to active research programs with undergraduate students. Our chemistry and related faculty have expertise across a wide range of chemistry disciplines including bioorganic, bioinorganic, organic materials, environmental, and surface science among others. Details about the Smith Department of Chemistry are available at https://www.smith.edu/academics/chemistry


Located in the vibrant community of Northampton, MA, Smith College is the largest independent women’s college in the country and is dedicated to excellence in teaching and research across the liberal arts. A faculty of outstanding scholars interacts with students in small classes, as advisers, and through student-faculty research projects. The Five College Consortium, comprised of Smith, Amherst, Mount Holyoke, and Hampshire Colleges and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, provides a rich intellectual and cultural life and broad collegial opportunities.


Submit your application at http://apply.interfolio.com/60242 with a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three confidential letters of recommendation, a teaching philosophy statement, and a statement identifying how your own research interests converge with Prof. Shea’s scholarship. Review of applications will begin on February 15, 2019. Smith College is an equal opportunity employer encouraging excellence through diversity.

NSF Eager

Dear Grads,

Please see the attached flyer for more information regarding the call for participants of a NSF EAGER (EArly-concept Grants for Exploratory Research) project. It is a great (funded!) opportunity for a graduate student to improve teaching and leadership skills while working alongside faculty to enrich STEM content and instruction at local community colleges that are designated Hispanic-Serving Institutions.

To apply, please submit your CV, statement of interest, and letter of support from your PI to Professors Stacey Brydges (sbrydges@ucsd.edu) and Stanley Lo (smlo@ucsd.edu) by July 27, 2018.

Note: This project requires commitments of time and effort, including (but not limited to) full participation in a three-day Course Design Studio at UC San Diego from August 13-15, 2018. In submitting your application, please confirm your availability and willingness to participate in this important project element.

Thank you,

Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunities – Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS) Program – Deadline 6/11

The Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS) Program is currently recruiting postdoctoral fellows.

If you know of anyone who might be interested and qualified please encourage them to apply.

The Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS) program is an integrated, three-year cross-disciplinary postdoctoral training program at Stanford University that brings together 33 faculty mentors from 14 departments in the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Humanities and Sciences. Molecular imaging, the non-invasive monitoring of specific molecular and biochemical processes in living organisms, continues to expand its applications in the detection and management of cancer. SMIS faculty mentors provide a diverse training environment spanning biology, physics, mathematics, biocomputation/biomedical informatics, engineering, chemistry, biochemistry, cancer biology, immunology, and medical sciences. The centerpiece of the SMIS program is the opportunity for trainees (PhD or MD with an emphasis on PhD) to conduct innovative molecular imaging research that is co-mentored by faculty in complementary disciplines. SMIS trainees also engage in specialized coursework, seminars, national conferences, clinical rounds, including ethics training and the responsible conduct of research. The three-year program culminates with the preparation and review of a mock NIH grant proposal, in support of trainee transition to an independent career in cancer molecular imaging.


1. Candidate must have an MD or PhD degree
2. Candidate must be a US citizen, or a non-citizen national, or must have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence and possess an Alien Registration Card (1-151 or 1-551) or some other verification of legal admission as a permanent resident.


Application Deadline: June 11, 2018
