Remote Position: No
The Center for Computer-Assisted Synthesis (C-CAS) is a National Science Foundation-supported Phase II Center for Chemical Innovation dedicated to research at the intersection of organic chemistry and computer science.
C-CAS is offering summer undergraduate research fellowships to students with disabilities to do research at any of the fifteen partner universities of C-CAS (University of California-Berkeley, Colorado State, Notre Dame, Princeton, Caltech, Carnegie Mellon, Colorado College, Pomona College, University of California- Los Angeles, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, American University, College of the Holy Cross, University of Tennesee-Knoxville, Occidental College, Whitman College & University of Utah). The program is open to any current undergraduate students with disabilities (mobile, sensory, learning, psychological, medical, or other), whose research interests are aligned with the topics covered by C-CAS (organic mechanism and synthesis, computational chemistry, and computer science). The hosting institutions are prepared to create and maintain suitable environments for the visiting fellows and meet all accessibility needs.
Preference will be given to sophomore and junior students in chemistry or computer science fellowship offers will be made on a case-by-case basis.The fellowship takes place over ten weeks (May 28th, 2024- August 2nd, 2024):
C-CAS provides a stipend plus a housing allowance
Under the mentorship of a researcher at a C-CAS member institution, the fellows perform state-of-the-art research over the summer of 2024. At the end of the summer, each fellow will share their research via presentation.
