Beyond research: new postdoc adds teaching training

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Photo of JulianLast fall the CEBC recruited Julian Silverman to serve in a unique postdoctoral position that integrates teaching and research training. The three-year position is funded through a $4 million interstate grant from the National Science Foundation Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). Silverman obtained his PhD in chemistry in 2016 from the City University in New York. He currently works with Professor Bala Subramaniam in lignin deconstruction research. He also is helping incorporate meaningful sustainability-related exercises in the curriculum for Subramaniam's graduate-level course, “Industrial Development of Catalytic Process.”
