Research Fellowships

The Kubota and Myhre Research Fellowships in Chemistry

The Chemistry Department at Harvey Mudd College is pleased to announce two new research fellowships in Chemistry in honor of Mitsuru Kubota and Philip C. Myhre, emeriti professors of chemistry, in recognition of their dedicated service and significant contributions to Harvey Mudd College.

These fellowships provide research support for Chemistry and Joint Chemistry/ Biology majors to conduct research on campus with a Chemistry faculty member in the summer following their sophomore year, continuing through the junior academic year, and in the summer following their junior year. Summer stipends, academic-year wages, research expenses, and conference travel funds will be available. The first Kubota Research Fellowship was awarded to Hannah Welsh ’17 in the lab of Professor Hawkins. The first Myhre Research Fellowship will be offered to a member of the Class of 2018 in spring 2016 to begin research in May 2016.

To be eligible to apply for the Myhre Research Fellowship in Chemistry, HMC Chemistry and Joint Chemistry/Biology majors in the Class of 2018 should apply to the Chemistry Summer 2016 Research Program and express their interest in being considered for the Myhre Research Fellowship. Upon acceptance to the summer program, interested students will be asked to complete an application form and prepare a short research proposal in conjunction with their faculty research mentor.  Finalists will participate in a brief interview, and the Myhre Research Fellow will be announced in March.

Questions should be directed to Professor Karukstis (karukstis@g.hmc.edu).
