Which area should I do my fourth year in?

  1. Mar 22, 2007 #1
    I'm about to be choosing my final year project for my chemistry degree.

    Basically, I love theoretical chemistry, but I don't want to work in academia and I can't find much about the industrial demand for theoreticians. I'm very interested in surface science too, so it's not a huge compromise if the money is that much better, but I wonder if any of you know of any lucrative opportunities for quantum chemists/statistical mechanics?

    Naturally I'll be discussing this with the potential course supervisors too, but I hoped some of you might have a little insight?
