    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    We are looking for one undergraduate student to assist in synthesizing non-natural methylated amino acids using organic chemistry techniques.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 9

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Minimum GPA: 3.6
    Prerequisite classes: Organic chemistry
    Preferred majors: chemistry, biochemistry, pre-health related occupations, etc. Students interested in applying to graduate school for medicinal chemistry programs are particularly encouraged to apply.
    Prior experience not necessary

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    Students are expected to work alongside graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to the learn practical aspects of organic and medicinal chemistry. This includes devising and planning synthetic routes; setting up, monitoring, and working up reactions; purifying crude product mixtures; characterizing compounds by modern spectroscopic and spectrometric methods; and keeping detailed records of your experiments and data. We place a particular emphasis on maintaining a safe working environment for everyone in the lab, and adhering to safe working practices will be strictly enforced.
