Group Openings :

Graduate Students - The Dinolfo group is always looking for self-motivated and energetic graduate students who are interested in working in the areas of Inorganic, Phyiscal, Organic, and Materials chemistry. Please see our publication list for more detailed information on our research interests. Interested students must apply to the graduate program at Rensselaer. For more information, click here.

Undergraduate Students - The Dinolfo Group routinely has openings for undergraduate students to participate in independent research. Students are not limited to Chemistry majors, but also include Physics, Chemical Engineering, Material Science, Electrical Engineering, etc. Undergraduate alumni from the group have had tremendous succuss in winning awards and have enrolled in excellent graduate schools (see the group news below and alumni member list). Interested students should contact Prof. Dinolfo.
