MSc Studentship Position in Computational Inorganic Chemistry with Dr. Tobias Kraemer

Thursday, December 6, 2018 - 16:45

A two-year research MSc is available in the Department of Chemistry at Maynooth University under the supervision of Dr. Tobias Kraemer.
The group’s research interests center around transition metal organometallic chemistry, main group and bioinorganic chemistry, as well as electronic structure and bonding. Quantum chemistry and theoretical spectroscopy are central in solving chemical problems related to these thematic areas.
The successful candidate will use molecular simulation methods to study organometallic multi-step catalytic cycles in order to get insight into the mechanistic details of these reactions at the electronic structure level. The successful candidate will learn to use a wide range of state-of-the-art quantum chemistry methods, get insight into theoretical aspects of molecular modelling and gain proficiency in the application of DFT and ab initio methods to a range of problems drawn from the above thematic areas. 
We are looking for highly motivated candidates, who have reached a high honours standard with a minimum H2.1 (or equivalent international qualification) primary degree in Chemistry or related discipline. Prior experience with theoretical chemistry methods, Linux environments and/or computer programming would be an advantage, but is not a requirement.
Minimum English language requirements can be found at
Candidates who wish to apply should provide a CV and full academic transcripts, along with contact information of two academic referees.
Applications and enquiries about the position should be sent to:
