Cohort 3:Team building workshops in Warwick

Cohort 3 attended a 3 day workshop, with the University of Warwick, from 2-4th May this year.The aim of this course was to provide postgraduate research students with an opportunity to build their understanding, skills and confidence in the key areas of team working in order to enhance their overall effectiveness as they pursue their research studies.






















Poster Prize: Jonathan Mannouch

Jonathan Mannouch, a member of Cohort 1, won a prize for his poster presentation: "Exciton Relaxation Dynamics in TT-Conjugated Polymer Systems" at the annual graduate student meeting of the RSC Theoretical Chemistry Group, which was held on 10th May 2017, in Southampton. Well done Jonathan!




Easter Time in Bristol and Southampton


Cohort 3 spending time in both Bristol and Southampton, during their Easter projects:


Computational Molecular Science Conference

3 day conference attended by cohort 2 and afew of cohort 1, at Warwick University

Relaxing in the evening.

Winchester Science Centre

Our year-2 cohort recently brought their Argon app to the Winchester Science Centre, introducing ideas of theoretical chemistry and modelling to a young audience of 5-12 year-olds.

Innovation and Development Award

Congratulations to TMCS Cohort-1, who won the 2016 prize for Innovation and Development at the University of Southampton's 'Bringing Research to Life Roadshow' Awards! The prize was awarded for creating ChemGolf, a computer game that illustrates the idea of a potential energy surface.


The TMCS Prize

Congratulations to Robert Shaw, who has been awarded this year's TMCS Prize for his outstanding performance in the assessed year-1 TMCS training programme! Robert now continues to Sheffield, to pursue his PhD with Dr Grant Hill.


Congratulations to all members of the second TMCS cohort who completed successfully the MSc in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry at the end of their year-1 training, and to the seven students who achieved distinctions in the MSc: Silvia Amabilino, Jake Bowerbank, Joe Lawrence, Robert Shaw, Weng-Hong Sio, Stash Welsh and Xinglong Zhang.


UKTC2016 Poster Prizes

UKTC2016 students presented their research at an evening poster session, with poster prizes kindly provided by the journal Molecular Physics. The Molecular Physics Poster Prize winners were Victoria Oakes (KCL) and Matthew Ryley (Nottingham), pictured together with (L-R) Profs Fred Manby, George Jackson and David Logan.



The two-week National Training School in Theoretical Chemistry, sponsored by EPSRC and supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry, took place in September 2016. The School provides a broad-based introduction to key concepts and techniques which underpin research in theoretical and computational chemistry.
