About

In the Chemistry programme at the University of Basel, a first specialization is possible, which can then be deepened in doctoral studies by dealing with current issues.

Career opportunities

Chemists work in basic research, in the development of new processes and products, in production, in analytics, in documentation and patenting, in food control, in the judicial-scientific service, in clinical laboratories (clinical chemistry), in consulting and in environmental protection , at secondary and technical colleges as well as university colleges.

In recent years, many smaller, innovative chemical and biotechnology companies have emerged, which enormously enrich the job market. Also, the desire to be self-employed can be realized more easily than it used to be.
