Prospective Co-Workers
Postdoctoral Associates
At this time no funded postdoctoral positions are available.

Applications for prospective postdoctoral associates may be submitted to Prof. Mohr by paper mail (preferred) or email.

Applicants must complete studies for a Ph.D. degree in chemistry by the time of appointment and should have demonstrated experience in laboratory research as well as a track record of scholarly work. Familiarity with enantioselective methods, catalysis, or multi-step synthesis is a plus. Interested individuals should submit a cover letter, a CV including a list of publications, a research summary, and arrange for letters of recommendation to be sent by mail. Please identify potential funding sources, a statement of career goals, and indicate an approximate start date.
Graduate Students
Potential graduate students must be accepted by the UIC Department of Chemistry. More information on admission requirements can be found here.

Prospective students should possess a basic knowledge of synthetic organic chemistry and be committed to pursuing intensive laboratory research in order to complete their dissertation.
Undergraduate Students
Undergraduate students interested in pursuing laboratory research are encouraged to contact Prof. Mohr by email to arrange a meeting. Students must complete Chem 232–234 prior to beginning research. Preference will be give to students that have completed upper level chemistry coursework and laboratory experience. See our posting on the UIC URE website for more details.
