Prospective Group Members

Graduate students

Prospective grad students first need to apply through the chemistry graduate program at MSU.  Click here for more info. Please Note: The lab is currently full and we do not expect to be actively recruiting new grad students in Fall 2022. Students interested in our group may want to consider working with other faculty in the Inorganic Chemistry subdivision: https://www.chemistry.msstate.edu/research/inorganic/

Undergraduate students: 

Undergraduate students at all levels are welcome.  No prior research experience is necessary, only an enthusiasm for chemistry and synthesis and a strong work ethic.  Students who have taken or are currently taking organic chemistry may be given priority, but this is not an absolute requirement. Note: Unfortunately, we do not currently expect to have space for additional new undergraduate researchers during Summer 2022, Fall 2022, or Spring 2023. However, we will definitely be recruiting for Summer 2023 and beyond.

Postdoc applicants

We do not currently have funding for an additional postdoctoral researcher, however interested candidates may still get in touch by sending their CV and cover letter to Dr. Creutz, and may be contacted if funding becomes available. I also welcome the opportunity to support postdoc candidates in any relevant fellowship applications.
