We are always looking for talented and motivated young scientists to join the group!

Postdoctoral Researchers:

Positions will be advertised as funding becomes available. Interested applicants with their own funding secured or who are willing to apply for their own funding are encouraged to contact Dr. Trippier.  All applicants should be able to demonstrate an excellent background in the application of organic and/or medicinal chemistry, including purification and structure elucidation and be able to mentor junior members of the group. Experience with basic cell culture and assay techniques would be an advantage.

Graduate Students:

Students joining the lab will learn state of the art techniques in synthetic organic chemistry governed by the principles of medicinal chemistry for generating compounds with biological activity and therapeutic potential. They will become highly competent in analytical techniques and structure determination including HPLC, MS, and NMR. The student will learn the techniques of chemical biology and apply synthesized molecules to cellular models of disease systems. Presentation and communication skills will be developed by means of regular group meetings and journal clubs. The atmosphere for conducting science at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and in the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center is highly collaborative providing the student the opportunity to further explore research methodology from across the pharmaceutical sciences spectrum.  All of these factors combine to provided an excellent preparation for careers in the pharmaceutical, regulatory or academic environments.

Pharm.D Students:

Currently enrolled Pharm.D students are very much encouraged to contact Dr. Trippier to discuss potential research projects in the lab.  Funding for summer research projects may be available but students are encourage to contact Dr. Trippier as early as possible.

Undergraduate Students:

Undergraduates at UNO or UNL considering applying to graduate school and who are interested in pursuing a period of research in the group are encouraged to contact Dr. Trippier.
