Research units

Join one of our dynamic research groups

Dalhousie has existed as a centre for chemistry research for more than a century. Over the last decade, our department has seen a significant expansion in research activities, measured by the amount of external research funding, the acquisition of new state-of-the-art instrumentation, the number of people receiving external research awards and, in particular, by the arrival of many new faculty with new research programs and external funding for laboratory renovation.

As a graduate student, you would be working in one of these research groups, as part of a team with other graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and scientists from government or industrial partners.
