Fully Funded 4-year Doctoral Studentships

University of Oxford - Theory and Modelling in Chemical Sciences - EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training

TMCS is the UK's only Centre for Doctoral Training dedicated to computational and theoretical chemistry. In the TMCS programme, you will receive integrated, in-depth training in the core areas of:

  • fundamental theory
  • software development
  • application to contemporary research challenges

TMCS is formed as a consortium of leading research groups from the Universities of Oxford and Southampton. Our students take a year-one training programme of unparalleled depth and breadth right across the subject, and benefit from our strong links with prospective employers across a range of sectors.

Research interests in TMCS include:

  • fundamental quantum theory, electronic structure and dynamics
  • simulation of materials, soft matter and biological systems
  • exploration of chemical reaction mechanisms and catalysis

Inquiries can be made to any of the TMCS academics from Oxford or Southampton listed on the TMCS website. For general enquiries about the TMCS CDT please contact: .

Further information on application process is available ‘here’.

Two funded project opportunities are available here:

What really happens to antibiotics: molecular simulations of realistically crowded bacterial cell envelope components.

New methods for simulations of complex actinide materials based on relativistic linear-scaling quantum mechanics

Deadlines: You are advised to apply as soon as possible. Applications will be considered throughout the academic year until available places are filled. At least one week’s notice of closure will be given on the course webpage: .

TMCS is committed to promoting equality and diversity in science, and creating an inclusive environment open to all. We particularly welcome applications from women and from other groups underrepresented in science.
