https://beavs.osubeaverstore.com/adoptions/. Submitting course material adoptions prior to spring term registration assists students to budget for expenses and allows the campus non-profit store to start sourcing low-cost formats of the required materials. Questions or need assistance? Contact email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faculty Awards Solicitation
The Faculty Recognition and Awards Committee is now accepting nominations for the awards they are responsible for reviewing and selecting – see the solicitation letter.Criteria and nomination forms associated with these awards are online; nominations will be accepted through noon on March 22. Guidelinesto assist those preparing nomination packets are available online. For further information, contact Vickie Nunnemaker.
General Education Implementation
The Learning Outcome, Criteria, and Rationale (LOCR) Committee invites the university community to provide feedback on the LOCRs faculty have created through a listening session. Participants will learn about the LOCR creation process, preview LOCR drafts, engage in conversation and provide feedback. Your college’s participation and collaboration will help inform the final LOCRs we propose to the Faculty Senate for adoption. All listening sessions will be held on Zoom. Registration is required, though participants can register at the time of the meeting and still gain access. Feb. 6, 2-3:30 p.m. and Feb. 7, 1-2:30 p.m.
Save the date
March 6-10 is Open Education Week. Oregon State is on a mission to lower the cost of learning for students. Will you join us? Open Education Week is a virtual celebration that raises awareness of global efforts to make learning more “open” — that is, more affordable and accessible to students everywhere. Learn more about this week of online events.

2023 St. Elmo Brady Postdoctoral Inclusive Excellence Symposium
Post-doc Ink Chemist
You must be enrolled in a university program working towards a PhD degree.
***Internships can vary in time and depend on the availability of the student***
The post-doctoral R&D chemist position is in HP’s imaging and printing business in our Corvallis, Oregon facility. The work will be focused on development of new ink formulations through a combination of empirical design and modeling methods.
Our group is responsible for the design and formulation of inkjet printing inks including the characterization of the print attributes and robustness. The project will focus on developing components that expand various ink attributes such as optical density and durability on different media. The project will also involve optimizing the new inks for drop formation and the printing process. Part of the role is to collaborate with the printer component designers to implement system level changes to balance tradeoffs in the various components.
Aspects of the role include:
- Component development
- Formulation design (includes design for performance, manufacturing and chemical regulatory guidelines)
- Print system characterization
- Cross-functional/pan global team participation and leadership
- External supplier material co-development and manufacturing
Our group is part of a chemistry center of excellence that develops inks for the different print businesses. While we work across several sites, this project will partner primarily with colleagues in our Corvallis, Oregon location. The Corvallis site includes a combination of F&D and manufacturing facilities with work ranging from MEMS fabs to large industrial printing presses.
- A recent (<1 year) Ph. D. in chemistry, chemical engineering, or related field
- Understanding of fundamental chemical mechanisms. Key areas include
- Pigment and dye chemistry
- Polymers in solution
- Organic and inorganic nanoparticle suspensions
- Interfacial and surface chemistry
- Proficiency in appropriate analytical instruments and the data interpretation
- Wet chemistry experience
- Strong written and spoken communication skills
- Ability to creatively solve problems in a fast-paced product development environment
- Ability to work and effectively interact (remotely, as needed) with team members from other disciplines, projects, organizations, cultures, and companies
- Demonstrated leadership, teamwork/interpersonal, communication and technical skills
- Resourceful, creative, and flexible
- Fluency in English
- Programming skills
- Familiarity with printing technology and color science
- Formulation experience is a plus
