Life Science Graduate Internship (10 week program):
or direct company link to position:
Research Associate (Masters in CHM/BCHM)
Start Date: June 1, 2020 through August 7, 2020
Location: Burlington, MA or Bedford, MA
Must be authorized to work in the US
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH)
Division of Laboratory Sciences (DLS)
Atlanta, GA (Chamblee Campus)
DLS uses advanced laboratory science and innovative techniques to improve the detection,
diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of environmental, tobacco-related, nutritional, newborn,
selected chronic and selected infectious diseases. DLS also works to improve the rapid and accurate
detection of chemical threat agents, radiologic threat agents, and selected toxins. In these areas,
the laboratory has been in the vanguard of efforts to improve people’s health across the nation and around the world.
Participants will join laboratory teams to develop and apply analytical methods to characterize and quantify biochemical markers, including those in biologic specimens (such as serum or
urine), that are relevant to disease and harmful exposures. DLS currently has more than 170 active methods and 230+ mass spectrometers in use.
Selected candidates will be placed in one of seven branches within DLS (see website for branch information: https://www.cdc.gov/nceh/dls/). They will gain hands-on experience using
state-of-the-art laboratory instrumentation and automation equipment. DLS offers a stimulating research environment that enables summer fellows to gain practical experience in
applied analytical chemistry and enhance their knowledge of public health.
Current undergraduate and graduate students majoring in Chemistry or Biochemistry. Must be able to comply with safety and security requirements before or upon reporting to CDC.
Must be a U.S. Citizen.
Program Dates and Stipend
Dates: May 21st – July 31st, 2020

For Further Information
Kye, Maddie and I (Ashweta) are representatives for the Chemistry department at the Council of Graduate Students (CGS). We are holding two pizza lunch events next week and invite all Chemistry graduate students to come!
19th Nov (Tuesday) in CBEC 267, 12-1.30 pm
21st Nov (Thursday) in BioSci 684, 12-1.30 pm
Please RSVP by 11/16 so that we can order enough food, by clicking here : https://forms.gle/LhNnHEaSGoCW2yraA
Why are we doing this?
CGS is the organization at OSU that advocates for graduate student protections, resources, and rights. Each department has delegates who represent YOU. We are your university and department voice! Some issues CGS is working on – establishing a grad student emergency fund, increasing mental health resources available to graduate students and providing affordable housing for graduate students.
This is an informal pizza lunch – come talk to us about what we do, opportunities and funding available from CGS (such as the Ray Travel Award) or any issues you want addressed as a grad student.
We hope to see you there!
Please contact us if you have questions : Sahni.16, Stachowski.7 and Lomax-vogt.2
The Department of Chemistry at Stony Brook University is conducting a search for a faculty member at the Assistant/Associate rank with expertise in synthetic organic chemistry and with a strong interest in the development of radiotracers for positron emission tomography (PET) imaging.
Stony Brook has established itself as a major teaching and research university. We have an outstanding faculty, a modern campus and state-of-the-art facilities for research. In particular, there has been a major investment in the facilities and instrumentation for PET imaging including the installation of a Siemens Biograph mMR human MR-PET scanner, human and preclinical PET/CT scanners, and construction of a GMP radiotracer synthesis lab for labeling with PET nuclides such as fluorine-18, and the construction of the Medical and Research Translation building, which is a focal point for translational research and bioimaging, and that houses a cyclotron and radiotracer synthesis facility. Support for cross-campus collaborative research is underpinned by the Institute for Chemical Biology & Drug Discovery (ICB&DD), the Laufer Center for Physical and Quantitative Biology, and the Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS), while the NIH-funded Chemistry-Biology Interface Training Program and an NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) Award provide an additional level of connectivity between chemistry and departments across campus both within the College of Arts and Sciences, as well as the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the School of Medicine. Faculty in the department are also members of two DOE-funded Energy Frontier Research Centers. Stony Brook University is close to Brookhaven National Lab which operates the National Synchrotron Light Source II, and Stony Brook Medicine recently affiliated with the Mount Sinai Health System, providing new opportunities for collaborative science.
Stony Brook is located 60 miles east of New York City. The climate is mild and local public schools are excellent. The Stony Brook area is developing into a major high technology area of small business firms and offers numerous employment opportunities. Located along the northern shores of Long Island, the Stony Brook area is a desirable place to live.
As part of our continuous commitment to research excellence and expansion, generous start-up funds, competitive salary, modern laboratory space and substantial resources are available. Enclosed is a copy of the position advertisement. We would greatly appreciate if you could forward this announcement to individuals that you feel appropriate for this opportunity. Review of applications will begin in Fall 2019 and continue until the position is filled. Applications and letters of recommendation can be submitted electronically via AcademicJobsOnline (15121).
