PhD Programme in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling of the Autonomous University of Madrid, the Complutense University of Madrid, the University Jaume I of Castellón, the University of Barcelona, the University of Oviedo, the University of Cantabria, the University of Extremadura, the University of Murcia, the University of Vigo, the University of Sevilla, the University of the Balearic Islands, the University of the Basque Country and the University of Valencia. Coordinator: the Autonomous University of Madrid.
The final objective of the PhD Programme in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling is to educate leading researchers in the use and development of the methods of Theoretical Chemistry that allow them to work in the fundamental areas of Chemistry, Physics, Material Science, Nanoscience and Biochemistry. In the same way, it aims at establishing an innovative staff for industries such as pharmaceutical, petrochemical, computational or new material industries.
Access and Admission
Students who wish to enter this PhD Programme are suggested to have completed a Degree in Chemistry, Physics, Material Science or related areas and who have taken at least 60 ECTS credits from the Master's Degree in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling, the Master's Degree in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry or Master's Degrees in the areas of Chemistry, Physics, Material Sciences with a large amount of theoretical contents.
The Master's Degrees in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling and in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry are the most common pathway to access this PhD Programme and ensure that the candidate has the knowledge required to work in it. Nevertheless, they are not the only way to access the Programme, as other research-focused Master's Degrees offered by the participating universities will be positively valued. Students coming from these Master's Degrees may be required to take formative complements from the subjects offered in them.
Criteria for Admissions:
Candidates who meet the aforementioned criteria may be admitted into the PhD Programme. The Academic Committee of the PhD Programme in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling will analyze the applications on the following grounds:
- The candidate's CV.
- The marks achieved by the candidate in the Undergraduate and Master's Degrees they have completed.
- The publications derived from the Master's Thesis will constitute a significative added value.
- The prestige of the Universities from which the candidate obtained their Undergraduate and Master's Degrees.
- Certificate of the candidate's level of English, of which a minimum of B2 is required.
- A motivation letter that explains the research work to be conducted.
- All the activities that the candidate took part in during their Master's Degree.
- The name of two people who may be contacted as references.
In the cases in which the Academic Committee considers that the previous formation of the candidate is not sufficient or adequate to access this PhD Programme, it may request that the candidate takes specific formative complements. These complements will be subjects from the first course of the Master's Degrees in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling and in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry, up to 60 ECTS credits.
