Subject: 17.09.15 PhD scholarships in Computational Chemistry and Biomolecular Simulations, UNSW, Sydney (Australia)
Two fully funded PhD scholarships (starting from 1 Jan 2018) are available for talented students to join the Mechanisms and Modelling Group (MMG) at the University of New South Wales in Sydney (Australia). In the MMG, we develop and apply methods of computational chemistry to elucidate the mechanisms underlying many catalytic processes in synthesis and in biochemical systems. This enables us to design more effective catalysts or reactions that our experimental colleagues can test or implement in practical applications. Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, supramolecular chemistry, and fundamental physical organic chemistry. Visit our website (http://www.chemistry.unsw.edu.au/ho-group) for further details. Broadly, the two projects on offer will focus on computer-aided design of new molecular receptors for catalysis, and medicinal and sensing applications. The candidate will develop and apply robust multiscale procedures towards predictive modelling of these molecules. This includes *high-level ab initio methods, *hybrid quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics (QM/MM) procedures, *molecular dynamics simulations and *quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) modelling In addition to the scholarship, support will also be provided for attendance at international conferences, as well as research attachments with our collaborators in Europe and the USA. Students with a strong background in physical and organic chemistry are encouraged to apply. Applicants are expected to have completed a Bachelors degree with Honours (first class or equivalent) or Masters degree in the physical sciences. Proficiency in written and spoken English is essential. To apply, please send a cover letter and CV, including contact details of 2-3 referees to Dr. Junming Ho (junming.ho.@.unsw.edu.au). Informal enquires are most welcome.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
All @ signs were changed to .@. to fight spam. Before you send e-mail, you need to change .@. to @
