    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

The project involves performing large-scale quantum-mechanical computations for organometallic systems, focusing on their catalytic activity in a variety of processes. The goal is to provide detailed mechanistic insights that will enable rational design of new catalysts in the wider context of sustainable development. There will be the possibility to collaborate closely with leading experimental groups within the School of Chemistry in St Andrews.

Funding Notes

Successful applicants should hold or expect to obtain a degree at grade 2.1 or above, or its equivalent. Experience with computational methods is a plus. Funding covers a stipend for 3 and a half years and all fees at the home rate (UK and EU students).
