Graduate students

Prospective graduate students interested in gaining interdisciplinary training in reaction discovery, mechanistic analysis, polymer synthesis, and materials characterization in the dynamic environment of a new lab should apply to the Northwestern Department of Chemistry graduate program. Current graduate students in the Departments of Chemistry or Materials Science and Engineering should contact Julia to set up a meeting.

Undergraduate students

Northwestern chemistry majors who have completed the CHEM 210 or 212 sequence and are interested in gaining research experience should contact Julia.

Undergraduates outside Northwestern should apply to one of the following programs and list Prof. Kalow’s lab in their research interests:
