Quick facts:

  • Teaching and research work is organized at the Faculty within twelve Departments.
  • Currently, 184 academic teachers work at the Faculty, among them the number of the senior academic staff (full professors, associate professors, doctores habilitati and active emeriti professors) amounts to 78.
  • The Faculty awards licentiate, MScPhD and Doctor habilitatus degrees.
  • Three main courses of study offered by the Faculty include: chemistry, environmental studies and medical chemistry. Other fields of study taught jointly with other Faculties, include: advanced materials and nanotechnologymathematics and natural sciences, and biochemistry. PhD programmes offered at the Faculty include chemistry, and materials engineering (in collaboration with the Polish Academy of Sciences). The Faculty also offers two postgraduate courses of study: "Chemistry for chemistry teachers", and "Modern analytical techniques in conservation of cultural heritage objects".
  • The total number of students at licentiate, MSc and PhD levels amounts to 1300 on average every year.
  • Modern instrumentation to support research efforts in all major sub-disciplines of chemistry (analytical, inorganic, organic, physical, theoretical, biological, chemical technology, crystallochemistry) as well as in chemistry-related interdisciplinary areas is available at the Faculty. Our research infrastructure has now undergone a substantial expansion and modernization thanks to recent funding successes from the European Regional Development Fund.
  • The first chair of chemistry in the Jagiellonian University was established at 1782. Originally part of other Faculties (Medicine, Philosophy, and Math-Phys-Chem), in 1981 the chair was upgraded to an independent Faculty of Chemistry. The best known chemists who have worked at the Jagiellonian University are: Karol Olszewski (1846-1915), who was the first to liquefy oxygen, nitrogen and carbon monoxide, and Bohdan Szyszkowski (1873-1931) known for formulating the equation that correlates surface tension and concentration. more (in Polish)
