The Warren Center for Neuroscience Drug Discovery at Vanderbilt University is actively seeking BS level scientists to join their team. Many of the center’s BS level scientists use this opportunity to gain experience and publications before entering a Graduate or Professional program.
The Warren Center is directed by Dr. Craig Linsley (editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry) and is located about 20 minutes south of Nashville, TN. While the Warren Center is known best for its neuroscience and work in GPCRs, they have funding for several other projects outside of the neuroscience world. Additionally, the WCNDD is great place to work with state-of-the-art instrumentation akin to what one would encounter in BigPharma.
If you are interested, you should email your CV and research summary to Kayla Temple at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The upcoming inaugural Women in Engineering Leadership Symposium will be a two-day event sponsored by the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBE) Department. The event will take place Wednesday, November 2nd from 5:30 – 9 pm and Thursday, November 3rd from 6-9 pm.
The first day will consist of a grad school info session/networking opportunity with 2022 AIChE President and NC State Professor Dr. Christine Grant, followed by dinner, her keynote speech, small group discussions with Buckeye Engineering Women in Executive Leadership (BEWEL) alumni, and an informal networking opportunity.
The second day of the Symposium will feature a student panel focused on holistic wellness and resources from the OSU Student Wellness Center.
Though this event will have many engineering students attending, non-engineering STEM students are also welcomed to attend. The discussions will be applicable to all STEM students and will be a great networking opportunity for all.
The symposium has limited capacity, so signups are required for attending one or both days of the event. You may sign up here. Additional information will be emailed to those who sign up.

Ohio State Graduate and Professional School Fair
Wednesday, October 26 from 4:30 – 6:00 PM
Performance Hall, Ohio Union
The Ohio State Graduate and Professional School Fair is designed for students who are approaching graduation and are ready to apply to an Ohio State graduate or professional school. It is also appropriate for students who are early in their enrollment and want to learn about coursework and extracurricular opportunities that will help them to prepare for graduate and professional school admission.
Students can meet with admission representatives from over 20 Ohio State graduate and professional school programs, as well as representatives from pre-law, pre-health, the Arts and Sciences Center for Career Success, Financial Aid, and the Writing Center. A list of attending programs is available here.
The Ohio State Graduate and Professional School Fair has been approved as both a First Year Experience Student Success Series option and as a STEP professional development co-curricular (PDC) program. It is free and open to all Ohio State students of any major. No RSVP required. Students are asked to bring their BuckID for entry. Presented by the College of Arts and Sciences Student Council.
The Medicinal and Bioorganic Chemistry Foundation (MBCF) Scholars program has been established to provide student travel fellowships for up to 15 students (graduate and undergraduate) to attend the 16th Winter Conference on Medicinal and Bioorganic Chemistry.
The conference will be held in the Steamboat Grand Hotel in Steamboat Springs, Colorado Sunday, January 29th to Thursday, February 2nd, 2023. The conference will bring together industrial and academic scientists from across the chemistry-medicine continuum and will be focused on drug discovery and development.
The Foundation will provide partial support (including $1,500 to support the student’s travel and lodging, and full coverage of registration fees) for research active undergraduate students and graduate students to attend the 2023 Conference. Students who are carrying out research on either medicinal chemistry or pharmaceutical facing synthetic organic chemistry are encouraged to apply.
Applicants must fulfill the following criteria:
- GPA > 3.4
- Experience working in a research laboratory
- Enough individual intellectual contribution for a poster
Applications must be submitted by 11:59 PM EST on October 14, 2022. Read the flyer for additional details and application instructions.
This Friday, October 7, a representative from Southern Teachers will be here at OSU to talk with students about teaching jobs in K-12 private/independent schools.
The rep will have an information table in the Ohio Union (Great Hall room, Friendship table) from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
Southern Teachers helps college graduates find great jobs in college-preparatory schools around the South.
The teaching environment in these private/independent schools can be wonderful because of their small class sizes and their close-knit communities. At independent schools, quality isn’t just about test scores and college acceptances; it’s also the unique way that teachers maximize the potential of their students.
While successful progress through a teacher-education program is essential for some of these jobs (e.g., for elementary teachers), for many positions a teaching certificate is not required. Math majors can be hired to teach math; Spanish majors can teach Spanish, etc. Candidates do, however, need a strong academic record and the personal characteristics that will enable them to manage and motivate K-12 students. To summarize: Teacher certification is not required for most jobs.
OSU undergraduate chemistry & biochemistry majors are invited to attend an online event designed to assist undergraduate students with their application to chemistry graduate schools.
This free event is hosted by the Department of Chemistry at the University of Virginia. The goal is to provide advice about writing a personal statement and putting together a resume.
- Mon, 10/10 at 9 PM — Why UVA Chemistry?
- Wed, 10/12 at 9 PM — Resume Q&A
- Thurs, 10/13 at 9 PM — Personal Statement Q&A
- Fri, 10/15 at 3 PM — Q&A with UVA Graduate Students
Each session will be hosted on Zoom. Zoom links will only be provided to those who register with a valid email address. The Zoom meetings will be recorded and made available to those who registered.
The OSU Wexner Medical Center COPPER lab is seeking applicants for an Undergraduate Laboratory Assistant position.
The COPPER lab is a well-funded organ transplant surgery research lab in the Medical Center, Department of Surgery. Specifically, the lab is looking for 1st or 2nd year undergraduate students with little to no laboratory experience, who are interested in getting their foot in the door with a biomedical science research laboratory.
Candidates do not need any prior research experience; they will learn everything they need for the job in the lab. They will spend the first 3-6 months completing all of the required medical center onboarding, security, safety and laboratory training. Students will also learn the primary support duties that keep the lab operational, including fundamental skills like sterile technique, chemical handling, and safe operation of equipment. They will then work one-on-one with the research scientists and staff in the lab to learn core experimental techniques in molecular biology, tissue culture and/or animal handling (depending on their interest).
This can serve as the first opportunity to get research experience or formal research credits. But if you’re looking to progress to graduate, medical, dental, vet school, etc, it is also an exceptional opportunity to set yourself apart from your peers. This role can become whatever you want, including a doorway to your next stage of training, research presentations, publications, reference letters… The sky is the limit!
This PDF (or Word doc) combines an email from a Post-doctoral Research Fellow of the lab, an introduction to the lab and role, and the application questionnaire.
