Department of Chemistry



Postdoc - Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory

I am writing to inform you about an exciting Post-doc opportunity in the Synthesis and Reactivity Section of the Asymmetric Operations Sector at JHU/APL.  We are looking for someone with a strong synthetic background including Schlenk-line techniques and analytical skills including multinuclear NMR and GC/MS.  This is an opportunity to apply chemistry knowledge learned in school to solve real problems related to national defense and homeland protection.  It is fast-paced and requires collaboration with other scientists and engineers with different skill sets.  Like a traditional post-doc, this position involves a lot of writing and presentations.  However, we do not publish regularly in scientific journals since much of our work is classified.  As such, the candidate must be able to obtain and maintain a security clearance. 

Please have your students apply to Req # 09612 at
