Research opportunities in Computational Chemistry

Students intersted in research opportunities in computational chemistry should contact Dr. Lin via e-mail at

Dr. Hai Lin is associated with the LAB COATS program and is accepting undergraduate students participated in this program for research projects.

Research opportunities in Materials Chemistry/Organic Chemistry

Current areas of interest to Dr. Reed's group include green chemistry, bioconjugate chemistry, nanomaterials and fluorescence. Research projects typically focus on addressing challenges in medical diagnostics and therapeutics. Current research projects in Dr. Reed's lab include: Synthesis of Biomimetic Nnomaterials, Protein-Nanoparticle Binding Studies and Green Synthesis of Nanoparticles.

Please contact Dr. Reed for information about available undergraduate and graduate research opportunities at

Research opportunities in Nanomedicine

Dr. Lee’ s research interest is the field of Nanomedicine for the clinical use in a wide range of topics in drug delivery systems, biomaterials, tissue engineering and molecular imaging. This includes polymeric nanoparticles, organic probes and macroscopic devices for the application to the human health and disease.

Currently, Dr. Lee is seeking an outstanding postdoctoral fellow (PhD in Organic, Polymer, Bioorganic or Physical Organic Chemistry or a closely related field) and undergraduate/graduate students.

Postdoctoral applicants must submit: A cover letter and CV with publication list to Dr. Jung-Jae Lee (

Required Skills:
1. Advanced knowledge of organic synthesis and design as applied to preparation of small organic molecules
2. Expertise in purification and isolation of small molecules and variable size polymers
3. Experience with ligand-receptor kinetics and equilibrium binding
