Group Picture: Summer 2020
New Members

Undergraduates interested to learn more about the Jakobsche group should contact Prof. Jakobsche by email. Please send me a copy of your transcript as well as a description of why you are interested in my group and what your goals are at Clark and beyond. I am generally looking for students who are aiming to be part of the group for more than a year including spending at least one summer doing full-time, on-campus research and doing directed studies during the academic years. The best time to contact me is sophomore year during November–December while you are taking orgo 1.

Potential graduate students should contact Dr. Jakobsche by email. Please include a full CV, a copy of your transcript, your GRE and TOEFL scores (as applicable), and a statement about your professional interests, goals, and why Clark is a good match for you. More information can be found Here.

Applications for postdoctoral research positions must be submitted by physical mail; applications received by email will not be considered. Within your application, please indicate why our department is a good match for you.
