This page contains information on how students can get involved in research. While many students begin their research experience in the summer, most projects are continuous throughout the year, and students should feel free to contact faculty about working in their labs at any time
In the summer, the UST Chemistry Department becomes a vibrant research community. 30-40 students, ranging in experience from new freshmen to seniors who have worked 3-4 years, work full time with faculty. We will have weekly meetings of the whole group to share our findings and discuss research issues. We also meet with students at other local colleges. There are also have several social functions we do as a group throughout the summer.
The links below will take you to information on the investigations being conducted by faculty and their research groups, as well as information on expectations and the application process. All students, regardless of experience, are encouraged to apply. If you have not previously conducted research in the department, you should talk to at least 3 faculty members so that you can make an informed decision as to which projects interest you the most.
