Gain invaluable experience in one of our research labs
We want you to get involved in the cutting-edge research done here and we provide many opportunities to do just that. The practical skills and knowledge you acquire in a research lab really helps you in your courses, and when you start a career or apply for graduate degrees.
We have active projects in traditional chemistry sub-disciplines (analytical, organic, inorganic, physical) and interdisciplinary areas like materials chemistry, nanotechnology, or drug design.
Doing research in a faculty researcher's laboratory gives you a glimpse into what scientists do. You face real scientific problems, hone problem-solving and laboratory skills, use state-of-the-art equipment and develop your own research interests. Plus, you get to know faculty and graduate students.
Research takes place all year round. Positions can last a semester or continue for more than a year. Students work for pay or as volunteers and there are many awards and fellowships to apply for.
