We are now seeking applications to join our fourth cohort of students in the Theory and Modelling in Chemical Sciences CDT.  Our students study theory, modelling and software development together in year one, based in Oxford. Years two-four are devoted to the main PhD project in one of the many research groups associated with the Centre.

Jenna and Ed join us for summer projects

Bristol Chemistry undergrads Jenna Ram and Ed Smith have joined the group for summer projects. Jenna is working on mean-field and perturbative approaches for model Hamiltonians describing systems that contain both fermions and bosons. Ed is working on optimization of density-functional quadrature grids in our in new code.

Welcome to the TMCS students!

The first batch of students will be with us for the week, talking science with academics and group members, and trying to decide what they’re going to work on for their PhD project.
