The study problems. The application of the careers in chemistry is endless, but we are pointing out some familiar areas.

Careers in teaching

The most direct job opportunity in chemistry is teaching! But there are different levels of teaching jobs!has a bachelor of education or simply bachelor of science in chemistry may be emloyed as a teacher of O'Level or A'Level chemistry. Here, He/She is expected to train students on simple chemical knowledge. This include laboratory experiments and theories.

But chemistry employed to either train new chemist or prepare students in allied courses with basic chemical foundations for their disciplines. Such foundations are essential for the trainig of petroleum engineers, chemical engineers, e.t.c.

It's rewarding being a chemistry teacher!

Careers in health services

A pure chemist may not be directly involved in health services, but the actual work of health-workers are tied to drugs.

Biochemist one of the most versatile career in terms of adaptation to different fields. Although it is

Other health services carriers that are related to chemistry are laboratory assistants such as science (or medical) lab ogists, dentists, nurses, e.t.c.

You may become a nobel laureate if you make a career in biochemistry!

Careers in industry

Chemistry has direct and indirect careers in Industries that include: extractive industry, petroleum and petrochemical industries and manufacturing industry. A chemistry student can aspire to become a geologist where specialised areas likeare useful in mining and extraction of minerals. Also, the analysis and characterization of minerals require the services of chemists.

The petroleum and petrochemical and science laboratory scientists. There is also the appendage inputs of environmental scientists.

Manufacturing industry is a host of others are instrumental in the development and manufacture of the so many products associated with this industry.

Food scientists are on the quality of existing food products.


Careers in agriculture

Scientists that work to improve forests and forests products are associated with a wide range of studies that methods. But it does not terminate at forestry! Other areas like fisheries, soil science and animal science are developed by the combined efforts of chemists, biochemists, physiologists, and some others. They carry out research the duration for maturation, increasing nutritional values, e.t.c.

Green Chemistry

There is also a need to introduce the concept of green chemistry! Like the development of green products where the essential point is sustainability, green chemistry has to do with chemical manipulations that will ensure sustainabilityhis immediate environment.
