The Chemistry Department at Lancaster is a vibrant community conducting research which transcends traditional discipline boundaries, for example, linking with biology, medicine, engineering, energy, materials, environmental sciences and physics.
Staff have interests spanning many areas of both fundamental and technological interest. Perhaps most importantly, the department share common ground in research excellence, an inclusive and collaborative spirit and a dedication to passing on knowledge to a new generation of researchers. Research impact of all forms is an integral part of the research activity. The department aims to mix the very best in chemical research with industrial partnerships to address real-world problems and generate solutions to grand challenges.
The department offer a number of funded PhD opportunities throughout the year, or you may have a particular project in mind that matches the expertise of our staff. Either way, studying for a research degree is a highly rewarding and challenging process.
The department provides a research environment that strongly supports the individual needs of each student, promoting a healthy work-life balance. It benefits from a significant investment from the University, and an extensive array of new laboratories, instrumentation and equipment to support ambitious research activity.
