Web Developer


Chemists Without Borders is working on solving humanitarian problems in a number of countries using the expertise of chemists in our community but also with a number of non-chemists.

In Bangladesh, for example, we are working to provide clean water to communities who have many wells contaminated with arsenic.

We are also developing chemistry kits using small quantities of chemicals for high school students in Sierra Leone. This will allow schools without a chemistry lab to still do chemistry experiments.

We are also working on a project to combat climate change by extracting the carbon in dead plants, thus preventing it from returning to the atmosphere as CO2, where it can continue trapping excess heat from the sun.

Chemists Without Borders has an exciting volunteer opportunity for a web developer who will join the development team to maintain and improve our current website. The position includes simple graphic editing, and basic HTML and PHP coding.
