School of Chemistry

Driving breakthroughs in energy, health and the environment
Working with industry, government and the community to support researchers and educate aspiring chemists as they work to address critical real-world challenges. We are recognised as one of the top Chemistry Schools in Australia.

Our philosophy and practice of using research-led teaching provides all of our students with the latest, cutting-edge scientific knowledge and invaluable problem-solving skills as they embark upon their careers.

Our people

Equity, diversity and inclusion

The School of Chemistry is committed to supporting equity, diversity and inclusion and has set up a committee to oversee these principles.

We make all efforts to support staff with caring responsibilities and retaining staff who are planning a career transition such as parental leave. We have developed a Parental Leave Process to reinforce the School’s commitment to supporting and growing a talented and diverse workforce. We also supply access to a parents room for staff and students with young children.
