Research Opportunities


Chemistry students are encouraged to pursue research that complements their personal interests, academic studies, and career goals.

That’s why WSU offers a variety of chemistry research opportunities both on and off campus, all year long.

Check out your options and get ready to explore.

Faculty-Guided Research


Partner with a WSU faculty member to investigate a topic that you’re passionate about.

Our faculty conduct research in every branch of chemistry: from analytical and physical to organic and inorganic.

Learn more about the current faculty research projects and their specialties.

Find an area you can’t wait to dig into? Reach out to the faculty member(s) and ask to join their team.

Off-Campus Research


Many institutions across the U.S. also offer focused, short-term research opportunities during the summer.

Some even include a stipend.

These are often called Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs) or Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURFs).

There are no off-campus research positions available now. Please check back in the winter months for updates.
