  • DEPARTMENT
    Chemistry and Biochemistry
  • LABORATORY
    The Drover Group

The fellow in this role will work alongside the primary investigator, undergraduate and graduate students, and other PDFs to build new molecules for use in chemical reaction development (synthesis). These new species will be characterized by a suite of spectroscopic tools aimed at precisely understanding structure (how atoms are connected to one another) at the molecular level. This project targets the development of molecules that are relevant to the breakdown of carbon dioxide (CO2) – a persistent greenhouse gas, to provide fuel, which can be used in automobiles, for example. Students will work in a laboratory at the Windsor, Ontario Campus. Qualified applicants should be enthusiastic, driven, and have a strong work ethic.

The candidate will engage one-on-one with the PI (DROVER) to develop a diverse array of skills ranging from research communication, peer-to-peer mentoring, and how to safely handle reactive molecules. The candidate will gain the fundamentals and skills necessary to succeed in inorganic chemistry – starting with field-specific concepts, encouragement to read broadly, to generate new ideas, and to tackle problems that are of global relevance. The candidate will attend mandatory group meetings, outings, and team building exercises. The importance of writing, organization, care to detail, oral communication, and junior mentorship will be stressed. Beyond training, the student will meet with DROVER once per week (30 min) to discuss research outcomes and goals, to plan research as appropriate, and to receive on-line feedback. Conference travel is encouraged.
