Master/Bachelor-Projects

Welcome to make your master/bachelor-project at Theoretical Chemistry 

Several experienced research group leaders can supervise your project, on master level or bachelor level You can click on the name of a supervisor in the list below, to get to each supervisor’s web-page where you can for example read a short comment about what the research group is working with, read a recent publication from that group and get the email address to each supervisor. You can contact supervisors directly via email to decide on a personalmeeting. 

Currently available degree Projects  

Several projects are generally available in Persson’s research group. Currently available projects include computational investigations of functional materials in a broad sense, including organic molecules, transition metal complexes and polymeric systems, nanostructured inorganic materials, as well as surfaces and interfaces. Available projects also include computational investigations of reaction mechanisms and reaction dynamics for solar energy conversion and catalysis/photocatalysis. Projects are often closely connected with experimental investigations of ultrafast reaction dynamics. For further information, please contact Petter Persson.

There are four available projects in Ryde research Group. Proton transfer within nitrogenase active site. Evaluation of different methods to calculated reduction potentials for heme proteins. Automated methods to determine hydrogen positions in neutron crystal structures. Improvement of drug-candidate binding affinities by quantum mechanical calculations. For further information, please contact Ulf Ryde.  

There are three available projects in Skepö research group, which are directed into: (i) Crowded intrinsically disordered protein solutions, (ii) Structure-function relationship of intrinsically disordered proteins, and (iii) Enhanced sampling and intrinsically disordered proteins . In the former projects atomistic and coarse-grained molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations will be used together with experimental techniques such as scattering and circular dichroism, whereas the third project is focused on atomistic simulations solely. For further information, please contact Marie Skepö.

There are four available projects in Trulsson research Group. i) Rheology of weakly attractive suspensions (computer simulations), ii) Best packing protocols for amorphous samples, tapping or oscillations (computer simulations), iii) Suspensions rheology of particles with tiny anisotropy  (computer simulations), iv) Morphology of drying polymer blends (computer simulations together with Petter Persson).  For further information, please contact Martin Trulsson.
