The Green Chemistry & Catalysis Group will be taking on undergraduate research assistants next summer (2016) funded through the NSERC USRA, Faculty of Science SURA and Memorial University SWASP program.  If you want more details on these opportunities, please contact Dr. Chris Kozak or Dr. Fran Kerton directly.  Many students from our group have seen their work published in scientific journals (magazines) and have gone onto either graduate school or professional school (e.g. medicine).  Our students are also encouraged to attend regional and national chemistry conferences to meet with other students and scientists.

We will also have space for new graduate students in September 2016. Please see the School of Graduate Studies and Chemistry recruiting pages for more information. Excellent students are awarded Dean of Graduate Studies awards “top-ups” and will be considered for scholarship programs (not just NSERC). Kerton group students have received Ocean Industries Awards and NL Government Resource Scholarships.

Are you Canadian or a Canadian Permanent Resident? Will you be graduating with an undergraduate degree in chemistry next year? Do you have a B+ or higher average? Are you interested in Green Chemistry and Catalysis? Why not apply for an NSERC scholarship and come join us at MUN for grad school! NSERC scholarship holders receive merit awards from the Dean of Graduate studies upon arriving at our University.

The deadline for NSERC CGS-M applications is December 1st.

Don’t forget to speak to your profs about writing a recommendation  – it normally takes us a week to craft a really good and personal reference letter for you.

[If you think your GPA is not high enough for an NSERC scholarship – please get in touch with us anyway about opportunities for Grad studies at MUN. Funding is available from the School of Graduate Studies, Teaching assistantships and Research assistantships…..which means you earn a salary while you study! and tuition fees for grad studies are amongst the best value in Canada. Please consider joining us on the Rock!]
