2017 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.

One of the fastest growing opportunities for internships in chemistry is the pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device industry. Drug development relies on skilled work in labs, and it is the priority of any chemist to learn the procedures that govern lab work, both for the sake of safety and regulations and future experience. Perform tests such as assays (for potencies, related substances, residual solvents, metals), dissolution, and moisture content. Chemistry interns learn from lab professionals to set up equipment, prepare prototypes, preform calculations, and keep accurate lab reports.

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.
