How can you make a flexible solar cell that can be fixed to anything? How can you build a molecular-scale motor? These are some of the fascinating questions that you will try to answer as a chemist.

Chemistry is the study of molecules and how they interact. As a chemist equipped with this knowledge, you can produce new substances and materials or devise solutions for all sorts of problems.

Chemistry is a broad discipline with many parallels with other science subjects such as physics, mathematics, astronomy and biology. If you are interested in exploring the interfaces with those subjects, you can do so in Groningen! You can expand your knowledge of chemistry and discover and apply new materials.

Chemistry in Groningen is the home of 2016 Nobel Prize winner Ben Feringa, who has won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his research on a light-driven rotary molecular motor.

Working on the environment, medicines or new foods … What will you choose?

As a chemist you will have excellent career prospects. There are openings in a variety of areas, such as business, health care, environmental inspection and education.

Chemists are often involved in the development of new medicines, or in the search for new synthetic materials with special properties. Another path is the creation of a more sustainable world through solutions for generating energy, for example using sunlight or motion.
