*NEW Centre for Doctoral Training: Theory and Modelling in Chemical Sciences*

EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) has announced funding for the Centre for Doctoral Training in /Theory and Modelling in Chemical Sciences/ (TMCS).

TMCS is a tripartite CDT formed as a consortium of leading research groups from the Universities of Oxford, Bristol and Southampton, and providing training across the field of theoretical and computational chemistry. Up to 16 funded places in each cohort will be available to UK or EU students.

Further information, including details of how to apply, can be found on the TMCS website:

New CDT in Synthesis for Biology & Medicine (SBM)

The new SBM CDT is a 4-year DPhil programme led by academics from Oxford’s Department of Chemistry, Prof Darren Dixon and Dr Martin Smith, that aims to train 100 next-generation doctoral scientists in the practice of chemical synthesis coupled with an in-depth appreciation of its application to biology and medicine.  Our aim is to train graduates capable of addressing major challenges across the entire remit of organic chemistry with a focus on skills relevant to the pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries. This programme was designed in collaboration with 13 international pharmaceutical and agrochemical companies and a government agency who have offered specific expertise to enhance our training and research. To ensure free exchange of information and expertise between all academic and industrial partners we will adopt an intellectual property-free model consistent with our focus on basic science.

The first intake of graduate students will being in Oct 2014.  Please visit our new website for more information on the programme and how to apply.

External Graduate Open Day for candidates interested in Organic Chemistry / Chemical Biology will be held on was held on 11 November 2013.
