Careers in Chemistry
It is estimated that the United States will have over 1 million job openings in STEM-related (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields and occupations by 2018.
Salem's new series explores the fields and occupations of science and other emerging fields, emphasizing STEM occupations and outlooks and green technologies where applicable. Written for high school and undergraduate students as well as general nonspecialists, this series will provide much needed insight into the career opportunities of this growing filed.
Careers in Chemistry contains over twenty profiles of branches or fields of chemistry such as Agricultural Chemistry, Cosmetics Chemistry, Food Chemistry, and Forensic Science. It also contains over twenty corresponding occupational profiles that highlight a particular career within that branch or field (for example, a perfume chemist for Cosmetics Chemistry). All essays are written by authors with expertise in science or a related field. Among the fields/careers covered are:
Agricultural Chemistry - Agricultural Chemist
Atmospheric Chemistry - Atmospheric Chemist
Biochemistry - Biochemical Engineer
Chemical Engineering - Production Engineer
Chemical Genetics - Geneticist
