Annual Symposium 2018

Our annual symposium took place this year on 4th and 5th July in Bristol. This was well attended by students from all cohorts, academics and Industrial partners. the two day programme included students talks, followed by questions from the audience, a poster session and an Industry led session on careers.

Laszlo Berencei and Darren Valentine-Outreach

Darren and Laszlo spent a week in Chesterfield in the Peak District, partaking in the OxHOS (Oxford Hands-On Science) 2018 road show. They visited various schools and held workshops to get children between 9-13 years of age more engaged with and interested in science through short science experiments/demonstrations across a wide range of topics.Darren is the co-president of OxHOS, so he deserves special recognition for putting a lot of effort into reaching out to schools and arranging this roadshow.

Callum Bungey-Student Talk

Callum, from cohort 3 gave a talk at the European Theoretical Spectroscopy Facility Young Researcher's Meeting on 18th June 2018 in Hamburg at the Centre for Free Electron Laser Science (CEFL). The title of his talk was: "Non-Born-Oppenheimer Electronic-Vibrational Structure".

William Glass- Poster Prize

Will Glass from cohort 2 won a poster prize at the 3rd conference on multi scale modelling of condensed phase and biological systems in May 2018, congratulations Will!

Lee Steinberg- Poster Prize

Lee Steinberg from Cohort 2 received a poster prize at the MGMS/UK QSAR joint conference on Structure Activity Relationships in Cardiff in April 2018, the prize was sponsored by MDPI Biomolecules journal; well done Lee!


Theoretically Speaking

Two of our students from cohort 3, David Ormrod Morley and Tim Burd, have launched a new theoretical chemistry podcast: Theoretically Speaking. Follow them on twitter at @TheoryPod, and access the podcasts on SoundCloud or on iTunes.

TMCS Prize

Congratulations to Jonathan Milward and David Morley, who have both been awarded this year's TMCS Prize for their outstanding performances in the assessed year-1 TMCS training programme, well done!


Congratulations to the third TMCS cohort, who all successfully completed the MSc in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry at the end of their year 1 training. Laszlo Berencei, Callum Bungey, Tim Burd, Tom Fay, Rocco Meli, Jonathan Milward and David Morley are the seven students from the cohort, who achieved distinctions.

Chemistry and blogs

All 3 blogs that students created with Dr Natalie Fey are now available at:
