2014 Chemistry Internships
The products we use as home electronics, beauty essentials, medicines, garden tools, and more have been researched and developed for how they work on a chemical level. Chemistry internships are just as varied as the branches of chemistry itself—you may specialize in biochemistry, chemical engineering, or food chemistry, just to name a few examples. Work environments vary, too: interns in chemistry find jobs in grade schools and universities, testing labs, research and development, pharmaceutical companies, private corporations, and federal agencies.
Alternately, you may work in the field with minimal supervision to develop a specific product. Take advantage of a company’s technologies to prepare crop protection chemicals, for instance, or strengthen another company’s liquid adhesives.
