DuPont GOLD R&D Recruitment Program

DuPont will be hosting a one-day seminar series and oral presentation competition at the 47th National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE) Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida on Monday, September 21. This collaborative initiative supports DuPont’s commitment to a diverse workforce and is the second installment of DuPont’s GOLD (Growth Opportunities Leading in Diversity) program, a new platform geared towards exposing doctoral and post-doctoral scientists from underrepresented groups (African American and Hispanic) to the wide range of career opportunities in industrial research at DuPont.

The theme of this year’s sponsored conference session will be “The Future is Yours: From the bench top to the world”. Participants will give an oral presentation on their research, competing to win $1000 and a guaranteed interview with a DuPont recruiter. Each participant will be invited to an all-expense paid dinner on the evening of the competition for an opportunity to network with DuPont recruiters and learn more about life in industry. Interested applicants should submit a one-page resume, one to two-page research summary and a 500-word abstract explaining how your research could be impactful in a commercial or industrial setting to GOLD@dupont.com.

Applications will be accepted through Monday, June 15th. Applicants must be pursuing degrees in chemistry, chemical engineering, material science, or closely related fields. Participation in this conference session neither obligates the participant to apply for employment or guarantees future consideration for employment by DuPont
