Internships & Research 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.
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.
