Chemistry & Biochemistry Research Application: Positions starting Winter-Spring 2024

In response to feedback from the department’s Student Advisory Council, the Chemistry & Biochemistry Department is continuing a new application process for coordinating student research opportunities. Our goal is to increase equity and transparency within the process. We anticipate that the number of you who are eager to participate in research dramatically exceeds the current capacity in our labs, but please be assured that we are doing our very best to provide as many students with research opportunities as possible.

The first step in seeking a research position is to complete this form. Your responses will give us a chance to review your interests and preparation. We will review applications and meet collectively as a department to match students with faculty members who have open positions. To assist you in the process of identifying potential faculty members who you may be interested in doing research with, faculty who *may* have research positions available have posted short videos about work in their lab.

Check out links to faculty videos about their work here: 

Key dates:

  • Thursday, February 1, 2024- Application opens
  • Sunday, February 18, 2024 - Application deadline

We will be in touch about the status of your application within 2-4 weeks after the deadline. 

There will also be a second call for applications in late January/early February where more positions may open.

If you have any general questions about the application process, please contact department chair Prof. AJ Vasiliou  (
