We have an enviable reputation for our distinguished tradition of high quality research. In the latest Research Assessment Exercise (2008) the School was ranked among the top 20 chemistry departments in the UK with 100 per cent of our research classed as internationally leading, excellent or recognised.
Importantly, the creativity, resourcefulness and authority fostered by first class research feeds directly into the quality of our teaching. Our research work is financed by multi-million pound grant holdings, won competitively from sources including the National Research Councils, the Royal Society, charitable trusts (including the Wellcome and Leverhulme Trusts and the Wolfson Foundation), industrial companies and the European Union. Key research in the School includes physical and analytical chemistry, synthetic chemistry, biological and biophysical chemistry, nanoscience, biomedicinal chemistry and forensic chemistry.
Join our research
Opportunities to join our research can be found via the project links below. In addition, details of the research performed across the School of Chemistry can be found within our Research Areas pages and prospective students are welcome to contact supervisors in whose research they are interested to explore the opportunities.
Staff research pages can be viewed via the School web pages at the address above where contact details can also be found. Prospective students are also welcome to contact email@example.com for further information about Research Degrees at UEA. It is anticipated that the majority of successful applicants will start on 1 October each year but some may be able to start at one of the University's other standard entry points (1 January, 1 April and 1 July).
