The Department provides enthusiastic support for early career scientists who wish to establish their own research programmes and laboratories through fellowships such as Wellcome Career Development Awards or UKRI Future Leaders Fellowships. The Department has more than 30 research groups with interests that fall broadly into the following areas:

  • Chemical biology and drug design,

  • Disease biology,

  • DNA and chromatin biology,

  • Molecular microbiology,

  • Plant biochemistry and bioenergy,

  • RNA biology,

  • Signalling and trafficking,

  • Systems biology.


The Department and the School of Biological Sciences offer a dynamic environment where our research programmes benefit from state-of-the-art facilities.

If you are interested in obtaining the Department's support for application to granting agencies, it is very important that you discuss your potential application with current members of the Department. If you are unsure about who to contact, please email the Department's Research Facilitator who will identify a faculty member for you to discuss your potential application.
