Chemists

Employment of chemists is projected to grow 6 percent from 2012 to 2022, slower than the average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Despite this prediction, there will continue to be good opportunities for chemists who can help the chemical manufacturing industry develop technologies and processes that reduce pollution and improve energy efficiency, monitor pollution levels at manufacturing facilities, and ensure compliance with environmental regulations. Chemists will also be needed to improve battery technologies and develop alternative energy sources.
