The Department of Chemistry at Memorial University is one of the largest and most research active chemistry departments in Atlantic Canada. Our 22 faculty members and 6 adjunct or cross-appointed faculty supervise over 80 graduate students who are working on M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in our research laboratories. Researchers in our department study all areas of chemistry such as analytical, biological, computational/theoretical, environmental, inorganic, materials, oceans, organic and physical. On an annual basis the department brings in close to $3M in external funding for our research efforts.
We also have 15 permanent laboratory instructors and instructional assistants, and several technical and office staff supporting our graduate and undergraduate programs. Besides our Honours and Major Degrees, we offer a Major and Honours B.Sc. in Computational Chemistry, as well as Joint Honours Degrees with Applied Mathematics, Biochemistry, Earth Sciences, and Physics. Each year approximately 20 students graduate with B.Sc. degrees in Chemistry which are accredited by the Canadian Society for Chemistry along with another 15 Minors in Chemistry. All of our students have opportunities to conduct research during their undergraduate degrees.
In the current academic year (2015-16) Chemistry is offering CHEM 2100 in both the fall and winter terms and CHEM 2210 in the winter term. This has been the norm for some time now.
The Chemistry Department wishes to notify students of the following changes beginning in the 2016-17 academic year and on a go-forward basis:
CHEM 2100 will be offered in the winter term only.
CHEM 2210 will be offered in the fall term only.
Did you know the Department of Chemistry news and information can be found on many social media sites?
Members of the department maintain our Facebook page, where information about news and events in the department can be found.
The MUN Chemistry Society also maintain the MUNCS Facebook page which focuses on the news and events of the student society. It's a great way to make contact with current and past members of MUNCS, whether it's to catch up with old friends, or a way for those interested in majoring or minoring in chemistry at MUN to make new connections and get information from their peers.
The MUN Chemistry Graduate Society also maintain a Facebook page with news and events of interest to our graduate students. It's also a great place for prospective graduate students to get in contact with our current graduate students to help in making their decision to come and do graduate work in the department.
Also, we have a new LinkedIn page where former and current students can keep in contact with each other and connect with potential employers.
