SURF: Announcements of Opportunity

Below are Announcements of Opportunity posted by Caltech faculty and JPL technical staff for the SURF program. Additional AOs for the Amgen Scholars program can be found here.

Specific GROWTH projects being offerred for summer 2017 can be found here.

Students pursuing opportunities at JPL must be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents.

Each AO indicates whether or not it is open to non-Caltech students. If an AO is NOT open to non-Caltech students, please DO NOT contact the mentor.

Announcements of Opportunity are posted as they are received. Please check back regularly for new AO submissions! Remember: This is just one way that you can go about identifying a suitable project and/or mentor.

Announcements for external summer programs are listed here.

Project:  Organic Synthesis and Methods Development
Discipline:  Chemistry
Mentor:  Brian Stoltz, Professor of Chemistry, (CCE), stoltz@caltech.edu, Phone: 626-395-6064
Mentor URL:  http://stoltz.caltech.edu  (opens in new window)
Background:  At the core of chemistry rests the power to manipulate the elements for the preparation of specific arrays of atoms in a predictable and reliable fashion. As synthetic chemists, our capacity to construct molecules with exquisite precision is unique in the sciences. The design and development of new approaches toward constructing important linkages and implementing these methods in highly complex situations is a key feature of our research.
Description:  The student will learn fundamental techniques in laboratory synthesis, reaction design, and optimization.
