Chemistry and Biochemistry

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry currently has 16 faculty members.  A search is underway to hire two assistant professors in biochemistry/biophysics.  Classes are taught by experienced faculty members who are highly recognized in their fields of study.  We offer majors in chemistry, biochemistry, and environmental chemistry.   In the past academic year 33 undergraduates obtained degrees with majors in our Department.   

Faculty research is focused on environmental analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry/biophysics.  Many of our undergraduate majors contribute to research projects in partnership with our faculty.  We have about 35 students in our graduate program, and several PhD students who are in the interdisciplinary molecular and cellular biophysics program.  

Graduates from our Department are employed in academia and industry, doing work that includes teaching, drug discovery, instrument development and sales.
