Founded in 2017 from the merger of agricultural, biological, chemical, marine and geosciences, the School of Natural and Environmental Sciences (SNES) is a centre of multidisciplinary research and training at Newcastle University.  As part of its forward plans and in alignment with the University and Faculty strategy, the School have identified a number of key appointments in agriculture, chemistry and soil science to develop a research and training environment that integrates our science base and delivers transformative solutions to society.  
New appointments will join a large and busy school of 120 academic staff, operating on its city campus and farm and marine stations, with access to the range of teaching and research facilities of a large Russell Group University. Committed to equality, diversity and inclusivity, we welcome applications from a diverse range of backgrounds
The School of Natural and Environmental Sciences (SNES) is seeking to appoint a Professor of Chemical Biology to expand our research activities in chemical research applied to life sciences. This position builds on our interdisciplinary research strengths in medicinal chemistry, taking advantage of Newcastle University’s track record in successful drug discovery research, as well as our links with industry, and will expand the research horizons of the group more widely to understanding disease biology and the application of chemical biology across the life sciences, in particular to plant and marine biology.
The School is committed to extending the diversity of its academic base; applications are sought from candidates with an international research profile in chemical biology.
