Post-doctoral Opportunities

St. Elmo Brady Future Faculty postdoc program

In 2014, the Department of Chemistry began a special postdoctoral research opportunity, the St. Elmo Brady Future Faculty Fellow program. Postdoctoral fellows in this program pursue independent research while also conducting research in an established lab in our Department. The appointment comes with an annual salary with full benefits, and an independent research fund.

The purpose of this program is to encourage and promote excellence and diversity (especially of women, African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans) in the pool of future faculty candidates in Chemistry at Illinois.

Financial support for the St. Elmo Brady Future Faculty Fellow program is provided in part by the College of LAS and the Office of the Provost. The application period is closed at this time.
