Career prospects

Chemists are key people in the future environmental work and for producing new medicines new materials and sustainable fuels.

It has become increasingly important to measure the presence of small amounts of harmful substances in very complex samples. This requires constant development of chemical analysis and scientists who can interpret and evaluate analysis results and make relevant risk assessments. In order to achieve a sustainable development, we need chemists to come up with new, better ways to produce the chemical substances and materials we need in society.

The biotechnical, food and pharmaceutical industry has a constant need for chemical expertise. These are areas that are currently expanding in the world, not the least in Sweden and in the Öresund region.

MAX IV and the future research facilitie in Lund, ESS, are and will be a great advantage for chemists who wants to work within in eg. the material science area.
