Two City Colleges of Chicago Students Selected for Internship at NanoProfessor: Students will receive valuable hands-on training with nanotechnology instrumentation at global nanotechnology leader

Chicago, IL | Posted on April 23rd, 2012

Bridget Basan, of Chicago and a student at Wilbur Wright College, and Paulina Szadkowska-Kociszewski, of Chicago and a student at Harry S. Truman College, are participating in a specialized, eight-week training course built around the NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program's curriculum and hands-on lab experiments. Once successfully completed, the students will be provided a paid summer internship in which they will assist the NanoProfessor scientific team in developing new, cutting-edge labs for the NanoProfessor Program focused on top-down and bottom-up nanolithography, polymer deposition, and the printing of flexible electronics using NanoInk's proprietary Dip Pen Nanolithography (DPN).

"The selection of Bridget and Paulina as the first students in the NanoProfessor Internship Program marks the first step in our partnership with City Colleges of Chicago to prepare students for careers in the growing field of nanotechnology," said Dean Hart, Chief Commercial Officer at NanoInk. "They will be working side-by-side with our talented team of scientists while gaining valuable hands-on experience using cutting-edge technology such as NanoInk's NLP 2000, which is the first and only desktop nanofabrication system allowing users to quickly and easily build custom-engineered nanoscale structures with a wide variety of materials from metal nanoparticles to biomolecules using NanoInk's proprietary DPN."

"At City Colleges, we focus on providing our students with the training and real-world experiences needed to graduate with credentials of economic value," said Mike Davis, Associate Vice Chancellor of Science Technology Engineering and Math at City Colleges of Chicago. "Experiences like this internship are invaluable to Bridget and Paulina.  It will help them find a job after graduation, add to their resume, build their professional network, and let them see science come alive in the professional world."

"I am very happy to be selected for this unique opportunity with the NanoProfessor Program, which will provide me with useful experience as I continue my education and prepare for what I think will be an exciting career in nanotechnology," said Paulina Szadkowska-Kociszewski.

Bridget Basan added, "I am really looking forward to helping the NanoProfessor team develop new labs for the program, especially those focused on working with polymers and flexible electronics given the importance these can have in preparing me and future students for nanotechnology jobs."

The joint program being conducted with the NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program and the City Colleges of Chicago builds off of the recently announced Colleges to Careers program, which is a partnership between City Colleges of Chicago and industry leaders to fill the skills gap and ensure residents can win the jobs of today and tomorrow.
