For students seeking to join the Richards group
The Richards' group is always looking for enthusiastic students to join our 'Nano-team'. Prospective students should apply to the Chemistry graduate program at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM graduate admissions).

Research Assistantships are available and current CSM students interested in joining the Richards' research group should arrange an appointment with Prof. Richards. As selection of a research group is a very important decision, prospective group members are also encouraged to meet with current members, attend group meetings and/or do a mini-lab rotation (spend a short time working in the lab) both with our group and at least one other.

For postdoctoral applicants
Applications should include a curriculum vitae (with picture), cover letter explaining how the applicants' skills may be useful in the Richards' laboratory, transcripts (or copies) from undergraduate and graduate school, availability (soonest and latest possible starting dates) and the names of three references with contact information. Complete applications should be sent to Prof. Ryan Richards via email rrichard@mines.edu. Applications will be evaluated on a regular basis until the position is filled. It is intended that this position will be filled as soon as possible.

For administrative assistants
The Richards' group has a part time position available for an administrative assistant. Please submit your resume and cover letter to Ryan Richards via email rrichard@mines.edu.
