After the last 2 years of working remotely, the office staff is excited to be working in person 3 days a week. Please stop by and say hello!

Check out the McGill University Faculty of Science Bio-Physical Sciences undergraduate curriculum.

Our newest addition to our instrumentation facility. A PerkinElmer TGA-FTIR-GC-MS, which can also do headspace-trap GC-MS.

Our research laboratories offer bright and spacious space for cutting edge science to take place.

The Department of Chemistry at McGill University provides a comprehensive teaching and research environment in the chemical sciences.  With 35 faculty and 4 research-active emeritus faculty members, the Department presently hosts over 200 graduate students and 60 PDFs/RAs.  The Department is emerging from a period of unprecedented renewal of its laboratory infrastructure, with $50M investment yielding state-of-the-art research and teaching laboratories.    Honours, Majors, Minor, and Liberal BSc programs in Chemistry are offered, leading to ca. 40 p.a. students graduating with a Chemistry degree. There are currently over 200 students enrolled in our undergraduate programs.  BSc graduates from the Majors and Honours go on to graduate studies, positions in industry and teaching as well as further studies in professional programs in medicine, law, business administration, and public health.   McGill Chemistry PhD graduates go on to excellent postdoctoral positions, academic positions,  and research scientist positions in industrial and government research laboratories across North America and Europe. A McGill Chemistry graduate invariably promotes Chemistry in the international community.
