Welcome to the School of Chemistry
The School of Chemistry at Nottingham has a reputation for excellence in both teaching and research.
Our MSci Chemistry course achieved 100% student satisfaction in The National Student Survey (NSS) in 2014, with 97% satisfaction achieved across all of our Chemistry degree programmes.
REF2014 judged 95% of our research activity to be 'internationally excellent' or 'world leading'.
- Congratulations to Professor Katharine Reid, our head of Physical Chemistry and Professor Ivan Powis who have been awarded a grant of €3.2m for their cross-national networking project, Angular Studies of Photoelectrons in Innovative Research Environments (ASPIRE).
- Published in the leading journal Nature Chemistry, recent work by Ben Gardner, a postdoctoral researcher in the research group led by Prof. Steve Liddle, has reported the first examples of uranium with covalent single, double, and triple bonds to arsenic.

New Developments in the School of Chemistry
The School of Chemistry is engaged in an extensive programme of works over the summer to provide a range of new facilities for teaching and research. These include new teaching and research laboratories on University Park campus and the centre for sustainable chemistry on Jubilee campus.
PhD Opportunities in the School of Chemistry 2015
The School of Chemistry supports one of the largest cohorts of PhD students across the university. Our students undertake ground-breaking research using state of the art facilities. If you are interested in taking up a PhD within the School see the link below for further information.
Fellowships in the School of Chemistry
The University announces the 2016 Anne McLaren and Nottingham Research Fellowships. The School of Chemistry would be delighted to consider applications from early career researchers considering an academic career. Please find details of the School application procedure here.
The School of Chemistry is committed to focusing its world class research expertise on the major challenges that affect us all – healthcare, energy and sustainability. As part of this commitment we have recently established a Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Chemistry.
The Centre will train new generations of PhD graduates working at the interfaces of chemistry, engineering, biosciences and business.
The School is proud to be recognised with an Athena SWAN award and is working hard towards further progress
