The Federation of Asian Chemical Societies (FACS) awarded Professor Marriott their senior research award, the Foundation Lectureship Award for 2017, in the field of Analytical Chemistry, presented at the FACS Congress, Melbourne, July 2017.

In 2019, Professor Marriott was awarded the COLACRO Medal. This was presented by the Organising Committee of the XVII COLACRO Meeting (Latin American Symposium on Chromatography and Related Techniques), Aracaju, Sergipe State, Brazil. 15 July 2019.  The award was for “Contributions to the Development of Chromatography in Latin America”.

Professor Marriott was the recipient of the “Halász Medal Award” 2021. The award is named after the prominent Hungarian Separation Scientist, Professor István Halász, who was a Professor at the J.W. Goethe University, Frankfurt.  The presentation was made by the Hungarian Society for Separation Sciences, 18 Oct 2021, at the 25th anniversary of the Foundation of the Hungarian Society for Separation Sciences.

Professor Marriott is an external course advisor, and Visiting Professor, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, UCSI University, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. 

He has recently presented Separation Science lecture courses to the Department of Chemistry, Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (2021), and to the School of Science & Technology, Prince of Songkla University (Pattani Campus) (2022).    

Philip Marriott was included in the "Analytical Scientist Power List 2023". The eleventh iteration of this prestigious list celebrates “Ten Years of Excellence and Impact in Analytical Science” and coincides with the publication’s 10-year anniversary and features in The Analytical Scientist’s August issue. Nominated by readers of The Analytical Scientist and then selected by an anonymous panel of judges, Professor Marriott has been recognised as one of 100 leaders and influencers who have truly made a difference over the past decade.
