Subject: 18.02.22 PhD Studentship in Computational Physical Organic Chemistry (School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh, UK)
Fully funded PhD studentship in Computational Physical Organic Chemistry
Dr Fernanda Duarte, School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh, UK fernanda.duarte[at] 
We are looking for a talented PhD candidate to join our team. In our research we use computational methods to understand 
fundamental problems in organic and biochemistry and to interpret exciting new experiments. We interact closely with 
leading experimental groups.

In this research we will implement computational methods to unravel molecular properties of catalytic and 
supramolecular systems, aiming to guide new designs. This involves state-of-the-art quantum chemistry, molecular 
dynamics, and hybrids QM/MM approaches. 

A suitable candidate should possess, or expect to obtain, a first class or upper-second class undergraduate degree 
(or equivalent) in chemistry, physics or related subject. Successful candidates should have a strong interest in physical 
chemistry, chemical physics, modelling and computation, as well as enthusiasm for (learning) programming. Other essential 
attributes are: a demonstrated ability to work well in a team and good communication skills, both written and oral. 
In the first instance, informal enquiries (accompanied by a CV, covering letter, and contact details of two referees) 
should be directed to Dr Fernanda Duarte.
