We have an exciting opportunity funded by the EPSRC to work on the development of new synthesis prediction tools. You will join the Grayson group in the Department of Chemistry to develop fast, accurate and mechanism-based reactivity prediction models by combining machine learning with reaction modelling for applications in organic synthesis, covalent drug design and toxicology. To demonstrate their broad applicability, you will then apply the models to rationalising experimental reactivity data of organic and biological reactions for which the use of traditional modelling approaches would be prohibitively slow.
As a Research Associate, you will:
Qualifications and experience
We are looking for a highly motivated individual to join our group. You must hold a PhD (or be close to finishing one) in computational chemistry or a related discipline and should have experience in coding (any language). You should also have experience of scientific writing and experience in machine learning and/or reaction modelling is highly desirable. Please include a CV with your application.
This position is fixed-term for a period of up to 2 years.
We welcome informal enquiries about the position. Please get in touch with Dr Matthew Grayson (M.N.Grayson@bath.ac.uk) if you have any questions, however, please submit your application, along with a copy of your CV, via the University website.
