Student Placement

One of the joys of academia is seeing bright young people become productive scientists and managers as they advance their careers after their time at Purdue. This is the primary reward of a teaching carrier. Here are some of the institutions our graduates and postdocs have recently joined:

  • Amgen
  • Argonne Nat’l Laboratory
  • BASF
  • Bayer
  • Battelle Columbus
  • Beyond Genomics
  • Bioanalytical Systems
  • Dow Chemical
  • Gilead Laboratories
  • Griffin Analytical Technologies
  • GSK
  • Eli Lilly
  • Endocyte
  • Environment Canada
  • Exxon
  • Intel
  • Iowa State University
  • Lawrence Livermore
  • Max Planck Institute
  • Merck & Co.
  • MDS Sciex
  • Novartis
  • Ohio State Univ.
  • Pfizer
  • Procter & Gamble
  • Roche
  • Sandia Nat’l Laboratory
  • Schering Plough
  • ThermoFinnigan
  • Waters
  • Wyeth

Our goal is to advance chemical measurements both to discover new science and facilitate technology. We interact across disciplines, bringing people together who are curious about data with those who have new ideas on how to obtain it.

We will work across the landscape of materials, life sciences and our environment, recognizing that a broad view fosters unanticipated synergies. We believe that teaching and research are one and the same. The purpose of both is learning.

Diversity is valued— The analytical division at Purdue has a long history of welcoming students of wide ranging cultural backgrounds. The common point is a passion for analytical chemistry. This is the theme that unites us.
