Scientists in the chemical industries are responsible for developing solutions to problems on a chemical level. They could either be designing and engineering new chemical substances, or using similar skills to analyse existing substances. Chemists are also involved in the process of scaling up chemical products from bench to volume production.
- development scientists
- environmental scientists
The industry is mainly focused on research, which requires graduates with chemistry or chemical degrees, but there are also positions available for development scientists and engineers. Increased emphasis on energy efficiency and environmental responsibility means that there are positions for environmental scientists.
