In 1946 the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham was formed and he became one of the first lecturers, rising to a Professor in 1951. In 1956 he was appointed the first head of the newly formed Department of Chemical Engineering at Manchester College of Science and Technology[2] (later UMIST, now the University of Manchester), UK. The Pilot Plant is now named the Morton Laboratory.

His research publications were in the field of mass transfer in distillation and liquid-liquid contact columns.

In 1961 he instituted a sports competition between the departments of Chemical Engineering at Manchester and Birmingham. This has now expanded to include all chemical engineering departments in the UK and is an annual event, known as the Frank Morton Sports Day.

He was President of the Institution of Chemical Engineers in 1963-1964. His presidential address was entitled "Chemical Engineering Manpower - a critical survey".[3]

In 1964 he took over as Acting Principal of the Manchester College, while the Principal, B. V. Bowden occupied a position in the Wilson government as Minister for Education and Science. It was at his initiative that college changed its name to UMIST.[1]

When the UK began to consider using North Sea Gas as a domestic fuel, Frank Morton headed a government enquiry into its safety.[4]

In view of his particular interest in, and contributions to, the education of chemical engineers, in 2001 the Institution of Chemical Engineers awarded the first Frank Morton Medal "for excellence in chemical engineering education".
