Research Opportunities

Students can collaborate on research with chemistry faculty during the semester (for credit) or during the summer (as paid research assistants). Some examples include:

Students co-author peer-reviewed manuscripts and present at national and regional conferences. 

Chemistry students have participated in research at other universities through the National Science Foundation’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (NSF-REU) and with federal laboratories.

Most majors serve as laboratory or classroom assistants, combining student employment income with on-the-job training in research and teaching.
