MOSAIC Fellowship

The NSF Center for the Chemistry of Molecularly Optimized Networks (MONET) seeks postdoctoral trainees. The Molecular Science and Integrated Collaboration (MOSAIC) Postdoctoral Fellowship is open to qualified applicants.

MOSAIC Postdoctoral Fellows perform innovative collaborative research at several participating institutions, in addition to making contributions in at least one of our four signature areas of broader impact: Informal Science Communication, Leadership, Innovation, and/or Scientific Breadth.

Eligibility: Applicants must have earned a PhD by the start of the fellowship.
We are especially interested in recruiting postdoctoral trainees who identify as part of a group underrepresented in the sciences.  These groups include female, genderqueer, transgender, Black or African American, Hispanic or Latinx, Native American or Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander, bisexual, gay, lesbian, queer, persons with a disability, and veterans of the US Armed Forces, Reserves, or National Guard.  The MOSAIC Postdoctoral Fellowship supports outstanding postdocs for this purpose.

Applications for the MOSAIC Fellowship should be sent to monet-cci@duke.edu. All applications must include the following:

  • Cover letter (1 page). Briefly describe your research contributions and how they complement MONET’s scientific goals. Additionally, discuss which MONET senior investigator aligns best with your research interests and serve as your primary training laboratory.
  • Contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) statement (1page). Briefly describe past contributions to DEI efforts in academia, and how you envision contributing to MONET’s signature areas of broader impacts.
  • Curriculum vitae.
  • Name and contact information for at least three people who are willing to provide letters of recommendation

Please contact Michael Conti (mike.conti@duke.edu) if you have any questions about the application process or identifying the best research opportunity for your interests.
