The Summer Research Program has been suspended for the year 2016 because of lack of funding.

Undergraduate Students in their second year of studies or higher are invited to apply for a Summer Research Program in Physical Chemistry, to be held in the Chemistry Department of the University of Alberta.

The application deadline is January 15, 2013.

The participants will have the opportunity to work within a research group in one or more of the following research areas:

Biophysical Chemistry

Molecular Recognition; Buried Solid/Liquid Interfaces; DNA and RNA Damage and Repair; Molecular Origin of Life; Ion Cyclotron Resonance Mass Spectrometry; Protein-Ligand Interactions; Protein Assemblies; Biofluorophores; Fluorescent Proteins

Materials Chemistry
