Subject: 19.05.21 PhD Scholarship in Computer-Aided Design of Organocatalysts (UNSW Sydney, Australia)
A fully funded PhD scholarship (AUD$27,596 per annum) is available in the Mechanism and Modelling 
Group (MMG) at the University of New South Wales (Sydney, Australia). 

The successful PhD candidate will work on the development and application of computational methods 
to understand how novel organocatalysts mediate difficult chemical transformations. 
This understanding will be used to guide experimental efforts as well as design improved reagents. 

As part of this project, the student will also develop robust methods to account for solvent effects on 
reaction kinetics and thermodynamics. The techniques to be used include but are not limited to 
high-level electronic structure calculations, molecular dynamics simulations and hybrid quantum 
mechanics/molecular mechanics (QM/MM) methods.

We welcome applications from motivated students with a strong background in physical and organic 
chemistry. Experience in computational chemistry is desirable but not essential. Applicants are 
expected to have completed a Bachelor Honours degree (first class or equivalent) or a Master's 
degree in the physical sciences. Proficiency in written and spoken English is essential.

To apply, please send a cover letter and CV, including contact details of 2-3 referees to
