Lab chemist

Research chemists explore and invent new products
and processes

16
  • One type of lab chemist is a medicinal chemist.
  • As a medicinal chemist, I use my knowledge of
    chemistry, biochemistry and physiology to find
    solutions to health-related problems.
  • My everyday work involves ? synthesizing new
    drugs for treating disease
  • ? synthesizing test compounds, forwarding them
    to biologists for screening and using the
    results to decide on my next step
  • ? working at the cutting edge of
  • drug discovery.
  • I am sometimes in the office, sometimes in the
    lab and occasionally at conferences. The work is
    very varied and no two days are ever the same.


My qualifications MChem in Medicinal Chemistry.

Teacher

Every day is different a stimulating and
demanding career

18
My work really is never the same two days in a
row every day is unique. My main tasks
include preparing and teaching chemistry
lessons marking and assessing work managing
the science department, liaising with the
heads of other departments and monitoring
standards achieved by staff and
students supporting teachers and
technicians administration (and inevitably
discipline).
My qualifications BSc honours degree in
Chemistry. PhD in Chemistry. PGCE (Postgraduate
Certificate in Education) in Chemistry and
Science.
19

Patent attorney

As well as technical knowledge, good
communication skills are vital

20
I wanted a career that would draw on my science
background and would also make use of my good
communication skills. Working as a patent
attorney is challenging and uses all my
skills. I am involved in providing
protection for inventions by writing and
prosecuting patent applications liaising with
inventors from the pharmaceutical and
biotechnology industries advising clients on
their patent strategy.
My qualifications BSc (double honours) degree in
Chemistry and Biochemistry. PhD in Bio-organic
Chemistry. Postgraduate Certificate in
Intellectual Property. Patent Agents Practice,
advanced level examination. European Qualifying
Exams (to become a European Patent Attorney).
21
In profile

A chemical science qualification is a good
training for a career in marketing employers
value the key skills of numeracy, problem
solving and communication that are an integral
part of all chemistry courses
Marketing project manager

22
Marketing is about identifying the needs and
goals of a customer and producing a product that
satisfies those criteria. My job
involves market research, product design and
pricing promotion and distribution of the
final product working with people in
different countries and coordinating activities
across departments. Every day brings different
challenges!
My qualifications Masters degree in Chemical
Engineering. Advanced Certificate in Marketing
from the CIM (Chartered Institute of Marketing).
Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing from the CIM.
