I am currently writing my PhD thesis in organic chemistry. While searching for job opportunities I realised that none of the industrial sectors meet my desire to actively help other people. Since I enjoyed teaching and tutoring students at university a lot I would love to make a long-lasting contribution to the benefit of underprovileged people through teaching and transfering context knowledge. Unfortunately, so far I couldn't find an organisation or project that aims at teaching chemistry or natural sciences in general in developing countries. Therefore, I'd be thankful to anyone who can help me on that problem! I also hope that getting in contact with other people on this platform is a first step into my next job, so please feel free to contact me!
