Undergraduate Students


Undergraduate research is an outstanding learning experience and is all but essential for students interested in graduate school in the physical sciences. Interested students should email a resume to William Dichtel and see the Northwestern Office of Undergraduate Research page for introductory questions and funding opportunities.


Graduate Students


Graduate students interested in joining the group should apply to the Graduate Program in the Department of Chemistry at Northwestern. We welcome inquiries about our research by prospective graduate students, but are not able to answer administrative questions relating to the admissions process.


Postdoctoral Fellows


Highly motivated, passionate chemists with interests in organic chemistry, materials science, or nanofabrication, as well as an interest in mentoring graduate students, are encouraged to apply. Please send your curriculum vitae, a brief research summary, and contact information for three references to William Dichtel. More information for postdoctoral fellows can be found at the Northwestern Department of Chemistry website.
