The La Pierre Group
Prospective graduate students interested in gaining interdisciplinary training in inorganic synthesis, actinide science, and materials characterization should apply to the Georgia Institute of Technology Chemistry Graduate Program. Current students should arrange to meet with Henry to discuss their research interests. Prospective students are additionally encouraged to apply for both the NSF GRFP and the DoD NDSEG, please feel free to reach out to any of our group members for support with these applications!
The Graduate Program in Inorganic Chemistry is hosting an information session about our program on October 7th at 4 PM EST, 2022. Additionally, the Division will host a session to provide guidance and feedback on NSF GRFP and NDSEG Fellowship applications and to arrange for further individual feedback from previous recipients and faculty. This meeting will be held on Monday, October 10th at 4 PM EST. See fliers for more information.
There are openings for qualified, motivated postdoctoral researchers with expertise in synthetic inorganic chemistry (solution or solid-state) and/or spectroscopy and magnetism. All candidates must be a strong group citizens and take a keen interest in the training of other group members and the successful completion of key operations of the group. Strong candidates will exhibit significant basic science understanding, motivation, and an ability to originate, carry out, and publish significant original research in collaboration with their mentor.
Details of Current Open Positions can be found here.
General inquiries are also welcome as new opportunities emerge throughout the course of the year and funding plans can be developed for appropriate candidates.
For initial discussion, candidates should provide a CV with a publication list and a cover letter/email describing briefly their:
(1) research accomplishments,
(2) potential research interests, and
(3) their career goals (~3 paragraphs total).
If the candidate has this information as a formal cover letter and research summary, these materials are welcome, but are not necessary. For further consideration and potential conferral of a formal offer, the candidate will need to provide three letters of reference (only upon request and after initial application review and discussion with Prof. La Pierre). These materials should be sent to Prof. Henry La Pierre at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Georgia Tech undergraduate students are strongly encouraged to apply to the group and should contact Henry directly by email (email@example.com). Please include a description of your research interests and a resume with your email.
