The School of Chemistry at UEA has a distinguished tradition of high quality research. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework the School was ranked among the top 10 chemistry departments in the UK with 98 per cent of our research classified as world-leading or internationally excellent. The School has well-funded research groups active in all the main areas of chemistry. In addition, we are at the forefront of interdisciplinary research, including biophysical and biological, energy materials, catalysis and computational chemistry.
Importantly, the creativity, resourcefulness and authority fostered by first class research feeds directly into the quality of our teaching at all levels. Most of our taught programmes include a major research project, which is usually undertaken in one of the school's research groups.
Our research is well funded, being financed by multi-million pound grant holdings, won competitively from a variety of sources including the National Research Councils, The European Union, the Royal Society, charitable trusts (including the Wellcome and Leverhulme Trusts and the Wolfson Foundation) and industrial companies. If you are interested in joining us specific projects are described in our research themes and current postgraduate research opportunities are described on the postgraduate research pages.
