Internships & Research Opportunities


On-Campus Opportunities

Each member of the Department has an on-going research program, thus research opportunities for students are available in  a wide variety  of areas. Students work on computer modeling of drug-protein interactions, synthesis of novel anti-bacterial molecules, analysis of pigments used in cave paintings, studies of the cell walls of fungi, and more. See the Research tab to the left for an in-depth description of each faculty member′s research program. 

Research may be undertaken for credit during the year (Chemistry 451 and 452) or for a stipend during the summer.

Off-Campus Opportunities

Many university chemistry departments offer summer research opportunities to qualified undergraduates. These positions carry a stipend and are commonly for eight to ten weeks. For more information on eligibility and availability, visit CIRRUS.
