The Department is looking to fill three new tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level. The three research areas that help define the positions are as follows:

- Biological Chemistry
- NMR: Methods or Applications
- Theoretical or Computational Chemistry

Follow the link in the title to a more detailed description of the positions and for information on how to apply. We will be reviewing applications until the positions are filled.

The Guelph-Waterloo Centre for Graduate Work in Chemistry and Biochemistry offers a fantastic environment in which to pursue your M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree.
Minuscule particles that approach the atomic scale often display new and exciting properties that differ from those in the bulk material. Nanoscience studies these materials that are used across all the other science fields, such as chemistry, biology, physics, materials science, and engineering.
Toxicology studies the adverse effects of chemicals on humans and the ecosystem. To fully understand the adverse effects, Toxicology draws from a broad array of related fields of study.
A selection of resources aimed at High School teachers and students.
