    Careers in Chemistry

    Because chemistry is primarily a practical experimental science requiring well developed laboratory and problem-solving skills, many graduates find employment in the multi-faceted chemical industry conducting applied research. For example, an industrial chemist might be working in the field of:

    • Food chemistry: developing and improving food products.
    • Pharmaceutical chemistry: researching new drug products.
    • Water chemistry: monitoring water quality or waste water treatment.
    • Agricultural chemistry: developing safer, more effective pesticides and fertilizers
    • Petroleum chemistry: researching new fuel and lubricant formulations
    • Biochemistry: involving the areas of biotechnology or toxicology testing

    Many industrial chemists are working in the field of basic research, using the tools of theoretical chemistry. Large numbers of chemists are also employed in academic and government labs conducting both applied and basic research. Chemistry is a strong training component for those planning careers in medicine, chiropractic, dentistry, pharmacology, or medical technology.
