Faculty 411 is a series of articles intended to help demystify the process of applying to faculty jobs. As our department seeks to recruit new faculty colleagues, we want every person to have the information they need to assemble an application that best shows their potential to be successful in a job – at Emory or anywhere!Continue readingWhat is a research statement?
While we are socially distant, we are working to bring the chemistry community closer together by sharing conversations with faculty, students, staff, and alumni. Interviews were conducted electronically and have been lightly edited for readability.Continue readingA Conversation with Samantha Summer
Since opening his Emory lab in 2009, Khalid Salaita has used nanotechnology to understand the physical forces that cells exert as they interact with one another. Now, through the power of mentorship, Aaron Blanchard, Joshua Brockman and Victor Ma, have taken knowledge gained from their training in Salaita’s lab to study cancer through the National Cancer…Continue readingHarnessing Potential: How the Salaita Lab Refines Researchers
