Department of Pure & Applied Chemistry – 3 x Professorial Appointments in analytical, biomaterials and physical chemistry.

The Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry has an internationally leading reputation for research and scholarship and to strengthen this further we intend to make three new professorial appointments in analytical, biomaterials and physical chemistry. For the roles, each Professor will have an independent and internationally-recognised research portfolio in one of the specified broad areas of chemistry. We are looking for proven academic leaders, who have the ability to build upon their outstanding track record and create sustained research excellence in the future.

Today our research activity continues to be of central importance in everything we do – informing our teaching and enabling us to translate outcomes for the benefit of business, industry and society as a whole. We are continually advancing the intensity, quality and international competitiveness of our research.

Our contributions to excellence in research, knowledge exchange and education have been recognised through a series of institutional awards, including the Times Higher Education UK University of the Year 2012, Entrepreneurial University of the Year 2013 and Business School of the Year 2016.
