Course summary

Research in the Department of Chemistry spans all sub-disciplines, from theoretical physical chemistry to biological chemistry and antibody engineering. There are six research themes:

  • analytical
  • fundamentals
  • health
  • interfaces
  • materials
  • transformations

Postgraduate students are offered a variety of practical training courses which include the full use of the analytical instrumentation and services availablem and are encouraged to attend our seminars and to attend international scientific meetings relevant to their research area.

We offer programmes leading to a PhD degree in four classical divisions of chemistry: inorganic, organic, physical and computational. While students will be formally associated with one of these divisions, the research carried out in our Department is interdisciplinary.

The current focus areas are: Catalysis and Synthesis, Energy, Environment and Health, Materials, and Sustainability. Each focus group is composed of members of staff that approach these topics from very different points of view, thus allowing our students to understand fully the context of their research.

Career opportunities

Recent Bath graduates have gone on to postdoctoral research in the UK, USA including Princeton, Harvard and Yale, the Netherlands, France, Luxembourg, Norway, Brunei and New Zealand.
