Subject: 18.06.02 Prestigious PhD Scholarship in Computational Organic Chemistry, UNSW Sydney, Australia
A prestigious PhD scholarship is available within the Mechanisms and Modelling Group 
( based in the School of Chemistry at the 
University of New South Wales (Sydney, Australia). This scholarship is offered under the 
UNSW Scientia scheme, and includes a generous stipend of A$40K per year (tax free), 
tuition fees and up to A$10K per year for career development.

This PhD project aims to pair theory and experiment to develop computational models to 
improve the description of solvent effects. This knowledge is crucial because most 
real-world reactions occur in the solution phase, yet existing models are limited due to the 
very large errors involved. The intended outcome is to develop systematic methods to 
overcome these limitations and expand the utility of such models to predict reaction outcomes. 
This project will combine aspects of both computational and experimental physical organic chemistry 
and will therefore suit someone with an interest in both. Importantly, the balance of these two 
components can be tailored to the interests of the candidate.

We welcome applications from highly motivated candidates with a strong background in physical 
and organic chemistry. 

Applicants are expected to have completed a Bachelor Honours degree (first class or equivalent) or 
Masters degree in the physical sciences. Proficiency in written and spoken English is essential. 
Experience with computational chemistry and/or computer programming is desirable but not essential.
