The Roizen group welcomes curious, highly motivated, persistent research scientists.
* Prospective undergraduates with a strong interest in organic synthesis are encouraged to consider joining the Roizen group. Undergraduates at Duke may want to look at MUSER to identify other research opportunities at Duke.
* Prospective graduate students must apply to the Duke University Department of Chemistry.
* Prospective postdoctoral scientists should submit applications by e-mail (as a single pdf file titled "Postdoctoral Application - Your Name"). Applications should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a research summary, a short description of future research interests, and contact information for three references.
