The chemical industry employs a huge number of environmental chemists to ensure that a given company is in compliance with government regulations. Government agencies especially environmental protection agencies hire chemists for environmental work. Waste management companies and consulting firms employ such chemists and environmental management experts to do consulting or remediation work. They are also in good demand from academia to government and from chemical companies to firms that specialize in cleaning up hazardous waste. Analytical chemists are employed in every part of the chemical, pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical, food, and waste management industries as well as in government and private consulting laboratories and with vendors of chemical instrumentation. Analytical chemists are employed in all aspects of chemical research in industry, academia, and government. Inorganic chemists are employed by industries based on inorganic materials such as mining companies, microchip or computer manufacturers, and ceramics makers. Organic chemists are employed by pharmaceutical, biotech, chemical, consumer product, petroleum, and other industries small or big Physical chemists find employment in a wide range of settings, including almost every industry, government agency research institute, and educational institution. Industries employing physical chemists are as diverse as plastics, ceramics, catalysis, electronics, pharmaceuticals, surfactants and colloids, and personal care products. Materials science, nanoscale science, and chemical biology are growing areas for physical chemists. Education is also an important area of employment; Colleges and Universities are hiring chemists. Research and development is the primary opportunity in industry.
