Create erupting stories as Science Communicator

The Carl Sagan Create for Science Internship has two primary goals; to establish a culture of ardent science journalism in the school and to develop and prune science writing skills in our students.

If you are looking to create something beautiful in service of science, look no further. The 'Carl Sagan Create for Science Internship' program is offering 3 positions this time around, where you can be a part of science journalism in three dimensions: writing, photography, and videography. The positions are open for current students.

Interested candidates are requested to send their resume to Roshaan Bukhari at s.bukhari@lums.edu.pk before August 30, 2022. 


NMR Training Internship Program

Work with 600 MHz NMR instrument, and gain fundamental training by gathering fascinating data from the cross talks of atom's protons, electrons and huge magnetic field leading to reveal the structural and functional characteristics of molecules. An exciting opportunity awaits for explorers of the microcosm! 

Two positions are open for PhD students of SBASSE, for a training internship on the state-of-the-art NMR machine! This is your chance to learn how data from this state of the art equipment is acquired, processed and interpreted. This extensive training program will require internees to work for 10 hours/week in the NMR lab, for three months. After an evaluation at the mid and end of the semester, successful interns will receive their training certificate.

Please send your application consisting of your brief CV and a paragraph about your motivation of acquiring this training, to Dr Adil Raees at adil.raees@lums.edu.pk latest by July 15th. The internship will start from August 1st, 2022.



Technical apprenticeship with NMR spectrometer


MS students of SBASSE are welcome to spend twelve weeks in the NMR spectrometer laboratory. Our machine is a 600 MHz NMR equipped with direct hydrogen, carbon, phosphorus and heteronculear probes and allows the determination of structure of, mainly organic molecules, ranging from small molecules to complex proteins. The NMR spectrometer is a complex radio. The signal is processed using sophisticated processing routines and is visualized and analyzed using specialized software. Furthermore, the machine is a beautiful illustration of quantum mechanics of warm molecules.
The opportunity therefore is rich and diverse and of wide appeal.
If you are interested in availing this opportunity (we can accommodate two students at a time), please send your application to Dr. Adil Raees at (adil.raees@lums.edu.pk) explaining why you are interested in this apprenticeship, by November 22nd, 2021. At the successful completion of this work, which may go up to 6-8 hours a week, apprentices will receive a certificate, can become superusers of the machine training others.
