The first Beilstein endowed chair was established in 2002 at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität in Frankfurt am Main. The holder of this professorship for chemistry computer science was Professor Gisbert Schneider. The support by the Beilstein-Institut also included the establishment of a computer center on Riedberg campus in 2003.
After the five-year funding by the Beilstein-Institut had expired in 2007, the professorship was transferred to the regular university system. Gisbert Schneider holds the chair for Computer-Assisted Drug Design at the ETH Zürich since 2010.

In the winter semester 2009, a professorship of Bioorganic Chemistry was established at the Technische Universität Dortmund. Dr. Frank Schulz was appointed for this chair, which was endowed by the Beilstein-Institut for a maximum of six years, divided into two terms of 3 years each with a funding of up to EUR 650,000 for each term. In July 2012, the professorship received a positive evaluation. In August 2013, the funding ended prematurely, since Frank Schulz accepted an offer for a professorship at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum in Germany.
