Research in the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department:
All faculty members in the Chemistry Department have active research programs. Undergraduate students can be involved in the research programs of faculty members by volunteering their time throughout the academic year or by participating in the Chemistry Department's summer research program. The professors' individual webpages contain information about research projects currently under investigation. Students are also encouraged to contact faculty members to learn more about their research interests.
Throughout the summer months, students are paid a stipend for their efforts in the lab. These stipends may be covered from the research grants of faculty members, while students may also apply for funding. Applications for Summer Undergraduate Research Awards can be obtained from the Dean's Office in early January. Students wishing to apply should contact a Chemistry faculty member for more details.
Mount Allison offers a Master of Science degree in Chemistry
in which both the course and research components may be completed on campus. Graduate
students are paid a stipend by the Department, while exceptional students may also be
eligible for a Rice Memorial Fellowship. Students are also encouraged to apply for
external scholarships, such as a NSERC PGS-M. Students wishing to apply to the MSc program
should first identify a potential research supervisor by contacting individual Chemistry faculty members.
Application forms and other information regarding the program may be found at the Graduate Studies website.
