Chemist

Career categories:

Chemists have careers that are anything but “Bohr-ing!” They study the behavior of atoms and molecules, and the effects of their interactions. They find ways to make chemicals useful to us by creating new products or improving old ones. Many chemists work in the private industry sector like drug and other chemical manufacturing companies. Chemists also research alternative energy resources and ways to decrease pollution. Do you have your “ion” a career as a chemist? Most jobs in this field require a master’s degree in chemistry.
