Realising the Potential of Earth-abundant Metal Catalysis.

Background. Transition metal catalysts play a key role in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and modern materials. Currently, this area is dominated by the use of expensive and rare platinum group metals such as ruthenium, rhodium and palladium. Read more

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Technology Enhanced Chemical Synthesis (TECS)

Our PhD programme combines world-leading research in chemical synthesis with state-of-the-art training in technology and automation to best prepare you for a career in modern synthetic chemistry. Read more

Trifluoromethylation using Copper-based Reagents and Catalysts (co-funded by Syngenta)

The late-stage incorporation of fluorine into drug or agrochemical targets is highly desirable due to the unique pharmacological properties conferred by fluorine such as enhanced lipophilicity, bioavailability, and metabolic stability. Read more

Dual Catalytic C–H Alkylation: An automated approach to reaction discovery (co-funded by AstraZeneca)

This research will develop the palladium-catalysed alkylation of C–H bonds using alcohols as the alkylating reagent. C–H functionalisation promises significant advantages in the construction of complex molecules avoiding pre-functionalisation. Read more

Identifying small molecules that bind to the E3-ligase Cbl-b

Project Description . This ICR PhD studentship is based in the Cancer Therapeutics Unit. The mission of the Cancer Therapeutics Unit is to design novel, small molecule cancer therapeutics. Read more

The Development of Artificial Metalloenzymes

Background. As natural biocatalysts, enzymes have evolved over billions or years to be highly efficient and selective. Their application in both bioconversions and chemical syntheses is attractive because of their sustainability and environmental compatibility. Read more

Dissecting glycan-mediated extracellular vesicle uptake by the human placenta

This 4-year joint Crick-Imperial College London PhD studentship is in the labs of Dr Ben Schumann, Dr Beth Holder and Dr Yan Liu's Group, based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Read more

Amphiphile-induced frustration in liquid crystals

Amphiphilic compounds self-organise so that the incompatible parts of the molecule are separated from one another (e.g. micelles); the exact same principle holds for liquid crystals (LCs). Read more

Artificial molecular machines for transmembrane communication

Talented and motivated students passionate about doing research are invited to apply for this PhD position. The successful applicant will join the Crick PhD Programme in September 2022 and will register for their PhD at one of the Crick partner universities (Imperial College London, King’s College London or UCL).
