The Department has particular strengths in biological chemistry and organic synthesis, computational and theoretical chemistry, materials chemistry (inorganic and polymer), magnetic resonance and structural chemistry, radiochemistry and environmental chemistry, nanoscience, biochemistry, bioinformatics, biotechnology, genetics, gene expression, molecular biology, microbiology, structural biology, neuroscience, pharmacology, toxicology and biomolecular sciences. State-of-the-art equipment, new laboratories and first-rate spectroscopic services support and compliment these activities. Each student has at least one supervisor and an advisor with pastoral responsibility.
In addition to superb research facilities, postgraduates in the Department have a graduate common room and use of a computer cluster. You receive training in health and safety, fire fighting, library skills and written and oral presentation skills.
Scholarships and bursaries
The Department has outstanding facilities, with for example 9 high resolution NMR spectrometers and 1 solid state, 3 area detectors and several powder systems for X-ray crystallography, and it hosts a national EPR service. Its research has been recognised both by funding bodies, who are currently providing over £40M of research grants, and by numerous national and international prizes and awards.
We offer comprehensive academic coverage across the chemical sciences and in all the core sub-disciplines of chemistry. We have strong research links with more than 80 different companies and more than 150 overseas universities and research institutes.
