Undergraduate research opportunities that are within the scope
of our current interests, are available for students to carry
out independent research projects. Generally, research projects
in the chemical and/or biochemical sciences. Students can
register for ACHM425 (Introduction to undergraduate research;
2 credit hours) or ACHM426 (Undergraduate research; 3 credit
hours). Students who register for Bio399 are also eligible.
Students are expected to be able to spend approximately 20
hr per week in conducting their assigned project during both
the Fall and Spring semesters. These opportunities are intended
for students with a genuine desire to pursue careers in experimental
research. Preference is given to individuals who have completed
one academic year of organic chemistry, including all associated
labs, and who have earned excellent grades in both the lab
and lecture courses. The number of slots available during
a given academic year is limited, and the opportunities are
highly competitive. Interested students should contact
to further explore currently available research
Opportunities are available for both students
wishing to pursue a Masters degree and those applying as Ph.D.
candidates to conduct their graduate work with Dr. Musah's
research group. Graduate level projects are in the areas of
organic, bioorganic and bioinorganic chemistry. Interested
persons should make an appointment with Dr. Musah to consult
about the research projects available.
Opportunities may be available pending funding.
Specifically, we are interested in an organosulfur chemist
with a background in synthesis and/or mechanistic studies.
Interested persons should contact Dr. Musah for more information.
