  1. Analytical Chemistry Colin Wright Scott Schreffler March 28, 2007 Introduction to Chemistry Seminar

  2. Overview • Analysis of what it is or how much is there, not how it works • Work in all areas of chemistry • Variety of work conditions depending on area of study • Work with a variety of instruments, and techniques • Develop new ways of measuring things • May do research to study environmental conditions or quality control

  3. Job Functions and Activities • Analytical chemists are generally involved with making measurements • They work in the chemical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and food industries. • Analytical chemists are also suited for positions as quality assurance specialists to ensure that procedures and protocols are followed. • They do basic laboratory research, develop processes and products, design instruments used in analytical analysis, teach, and work in marketing and law.

  4. Places of Employment • Analytical chemists are employed in every part of the chemical, pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical, food, and waste management industries • They also can work with the government and private consulting labs. • Work anywhere in the world

  5. Personal Characteristics • Good laboratory and mechanical skills needed • Patience while working in the lab. • Ability to take precise and accurate measurements. • Good communication skills • Ability to learn about and keep up with new techniques and instrumentation and technology • Being a problem solver, thinking outside the box

  6. Job Outlook • While overall companies are hiring less analytical chemists you can still find jobs • The trend is to now hire short term employees • The salaries are • Bachelor's degree is $26,000 • Master's degree is $34,250 • Doctorate’s degree is $51,000

  7. Education and Training Requirements • Training should include advanced instrumentation such as: HPLC, GC, Mass-Spec, etc. • Good lab skills are a must • need to be clean • record all data exactly • Communication skills • Computer skills needed may include: MS Word, MS Excel, and other more specific chemistry related programs • Broad chemical knowledge helpful • Customer service, business, and management skill are becoming more necessary

  8. Additional Information • Analytical Chemistry: Springboard • List of analytical chemistry resources • VC2: Analytical Chemistry • Basic Overview • Career Builder • Jobs in analytical chemistry • Analytical Chemistry: What is it? • Description of analytical chemistry itself • Wikipedia • History of analytical chemistry
