CCHF Communicating Chemistry Postdoctoral Fellowship Application

Center for Selective C-H Functionalization's (CCHF) 2014-2015 CCHF Communicating Chemistry Postdoctoral (CCPD) Fellowship Description: This one year postdoctoral fellowship position extends the traditional postdoctoral fellowship beyond lab research. Through this position, the CCPD will engage in a wide range of science communication activities, from training and professional development to project development and evaluation. This position will play a critical role in the CCHF realizing its science outreach and broader impact goals and being at the forefront of effective science research communication. Candidates must have an interest in engaging not only in revolutionary scientific research but also mastering various methods of communicating chemistry to various audiences (i.e., public, K-12, scientific community, etc.) through animations, digital/social media, science journalism, exhibits, television/radio, and public events. Furthermore, they will explore, test and assess new methods and technologies for this dissemination. The candidate for this position must have a Ph.D. in chemistry, preferably with a focus on C-H Functionalization. It is a ½ lab-based research, ½ science communication position. The lab-based research will be conducted in one of the Center’s 23 research labs, while the remaining half of the Fellow’s time will focus on research communication activities with the Center’s Director of Education, Outreach, and Diversity and staff. Opportunities and training in communicating research to public audiences will be provided. In turn, the Fellow will use these skills to enhance the Center’s research and outreach activities. This position is ideal for candidates interested in pursuing careers in academia, industry, or nontraditional pathways in Chemistry.

Eligibility - Must have a Ph.D. in Chemistry, preferably with a focus in C-H Functionalization (by May 1, 2015.) - Candidate’s chemical research preparation and interests much align with the research being conducted within the CCHF Candidates from underrepresented groups in Chemistry are strongly encouraged to apply. Update: International students may apply. Application - Online Application - 2 Letters of Reference - Transcript -Curriculum Vitae or Resume The application and the supplemental documents must be submitted by the deadline. Letters of Reference, transcript, and Curriculum vitae or resume (optional) must be emailed to cchfresearchopps@nsf-cchf.com by the deadline.
