We are pleased to announce the Department of Chemistry’s inaugural Summer Visiting Faculty Research Partnership, an initiative we hope will enable us to welcome visiting scholars and collaborators from a broad range of institutions.
The partnership is designed to draw faculty from moderate-to-small research programs and more diverse institutions: undergraduate colleges; programs with small doctoral or no doctoral programs; and institutions that serve historically excluded groups. Our goal is to deepen relationships with those we have not often worked with, and to expand our network of talented peers.
The program will run two months, from June 1 through July 29, 2022, and carry a short-term appointment as Visiting Research Scholar to fulfill a chemistry-based project with a department faculty member.
Applications for the summer of 2022 will open Oct. 1 and run through Dec. 15, 2021.
Selected visiting faculty have the opportunity to bring two undergraduate or graduate students with them to Frick Laboratory. Stipends are offered for faculty and accompanying students, along with access to resources and labs; our core facilities; and advising resources, i.e. the Office of Sponsored Research. In addition, students will enjoy professional development workshops, info sessions with local pharma companies, on-campus housing, travel reimbursement, and other program benefits.
Applicants will complete a preliminary application, including a CV, short project proposal and provide a list of faculty they would like to work with. Partnership finalists will be asked to complete an in-depth application, as well as a long form proposal and budget to be reviewed by Princeton Chemistry faculty and program administrators.
The program will be capped with an end-of-summer research symposium and reception featuring faculty partners and graduate students. Undergraduates will have the opportunity to participate in an open poster session.
