Employability and careers

Career prospects are bright for chemistry and molecular biosciences graduates.

Whichever science courses and programs you undertake, you’ll leave UQ knowing how to think like a scientist and equipped with skills in areas of problem-solving, communication, teamwork, critical thinking and data analysis. These lifelong skills are sought by employers across a range of sectors in Australia and abroad, and you can apply them in scientific roles as well as non-science areas.

You can start planning for your career before you graduate by volunteering, building networks, participating in leadership and personal development programs, and seeking advice from UQ's Careers & Employability team.
