Job Resources for Our Students

For Recruiters

On-Site Recruiting Program

Our department features active research programs in organic, physical, inorganic, theoretical chemistry, and in chemical biology and chemical physics, with particularly exciting work being done at the interfaces between these research areas. The community of faculty, post-docs, graduate students, undergraduates, and staff make Harvard a terrific place to learn, teach, and perform research in the chemical sciences. Couple all that with the excellent facilities here (state-of-the-art laboratories, extensive instrumentation, a wonderful library, and well-maintained teaching facilities) and you can expect a great field of job candidates at the PhD level every year.

For Students

Corporate Recruiting Events

Every year, our department hosts corporate recuiting events to introduce industry representatives to our graduate students and postdocs. Typically, each company visits for a one-day event, which includes a background presentation on their organization, followed by individual interviews. We post the upcoming recruiting schedule here on our website and send an email to our eligible students and postdocs to provide additional information.
