PhD studentship

Predicting Synthesizable Polymorphs of Pharmaceutical Compounds

4-year studentship available to start September, 2020. Stipend + fees for UK or EU student, funded through an industrial CASE award with Johnson Matthey.

The project will apply Monte Carlo sampling and unsupervised learning to explore the stability of predicted crystal structures of pharmaceutical molecules, to gain insight into the characteristics that make a particular crystal structure experimentally realisable.
