Research in the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department:
All faculty members in the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department have active research programs with undergraduates playing key roles in their productivity. 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 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 Independent Student Research Grants can be obtained from the Research Office in early January. Students wishing to apply should contact a Chemistry or Biochemistry 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 and Biochemistry faculty members.
Application forms and other information regarding the program may be found at the Graduate Studies website.
