Welcome to the Central Washington University Chemistry Department!
The Chemistry Department is a dynamic, energetic and growing organization that focuses on giving students the best possible education in the chemical sciences. We are housed in the Science Building, a state-of-the-art facility with labs offering the latest instrumentation and technology. We offer both undergraduate and graduate degrees and are proud of our low student to faculty teaching ratios. The department has fourteen fulltime faculty and a support staff of seven. Our faculty members have diverse research interests - ranging from the study of trace metals over remote areas of the open ocean to bio activation and cytotoxic mechanisms of xenobiotics including antineoplastic agents, environmental contaminants, natural products and photosensitizers to theoretical investigation of the chemical vapor deposition processes of various inorganic materials such as diamond, graphite, silicon crystals, and silicon carbide. Student research opportunities abound for undergraduates as well as graduate students. Welcome to our website!
JOIN OUR TEAM! The CWU Chemistry Department anticipates Three (3) full-time lecturer openings for the 2015-16 academic year, with one including teaching in analytical and environmental chemistry. Please apply online at http://jobs.cwu.edu/postings/9391
