Something for you?
- At Radboud University, all (bio)chemistry and chemical biology research groups work closely together, allowing you to tackle a wide range of exciting problems during your internship.
- We offer a unique combination of top level organic and biomolecular chemistry research groups at the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM), the Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Science (RIMLS), and the Radboud Institute for Health Sciences (RIHS).
- You will work on projects that run ‘from molecule to man’, or in other words, from the fume cupboard to the patient.
- Teaching takes place in small groups and in a stimulating, personal setting.

What will you learn
In this specialisation, you will learn how to use chemistry to understand life at the molecular level and interact with it. You will get a comprehensive theoretical basis in biochemistry and hands-on experience in a lab. During one or two internships, you will be responsible for your own experiments, under the supervision of one of our top researchers. We encourage you to explore your dream job during a second internship, which is a perfect stepping stone to your future career.Study programme
Future career opportunities
We stimulate our Master's students to develop a critical mind and a problem solving attitude. Some of them will become the next generation of top scientists, all of them will have a job within a couple of months after graduation. Almost half of our graduates will become a PhD student at a university, while others will work at a research institute in the (bio)chemical or health industry or in one of our spin-off companies. A small portion chooses a job outside of the scientific world, for example as policymaker at a governmental organisation.
- 40% will become a PhD student at a university.
- 60% will work at a research institute, in the (bio)chemical industry or in one of our spin-off companies.
- A few students choose for a job outside the scientific world, for example as a policymaker at a governmental organisation.
The Master’s specialisation in Chemistry of Life is closely linked to several research departments within the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM): The Physical-Organic Chemistry department aims to create a synthetic cell, the research in the Biomolecular Chemistry department is aimed at a better understanding of cellular stress and autoimmunity at the molecular level, and the Synthetic Organic Chemistry group focuses on the development of new and sustainable synthetic (multistep) reactions by using bio-, organo- or metal-catalysts.
