University of Minnesota MRSEC
A comprehensive center that integrates interdisciplinary materials research with innovative outreach to inspire excellence in all aspects of science and engineering


The UMN MRSEC is pleased to announce the Frank Snowden Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.

Within the collaborative and cross disciplinary environment of the UMN MRSEC, Snowden fellows will engage in exciting research projects aligned with IRG 1: Ionic Control of Materials, IRG-2: Mesoscale Network Materials, or a Seed Project. Fellows will additionally participate in a variety of MRSEC professional and career development opportunities, including workshops about topics such as building an inclusive climate, dealing with conflict, self-advocacy, as well as networking opportunities with visiting academic and industrial scientists, and specific preparation for future academic careers. Additionally, fellows will have opportunities to act as mentors and role models for young learners (K-12 through undergraduate) through participation in a suite of outreach activities.
