  Designing novel composite polysaccharide nanoparticles for combined diagnosis and treatment of cancers
  Dr E Barbu, Dr A Lalatsa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer continues to impose a vast burden with regard to financial costs as well as human suffering but the progress in its treatment is hindered by the limited selectivity and significant side-effects that the current chemotherapy demonstrates, representing a major challenge for modern drug delivery.
  Photochemical synthesis of new drug-like scaffolds
  Dr C Smith, Dr A T Russell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Our laboratory is interested in the application of enabling technologies, such as continuous flow[1] and photochemistry,[2] for the synthesis of useful functional molecules such as drugs, agrochemicals and materials.
  Carbohydrate analysis for biomedical applications.
  Dr S Allman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Changes in the patterns of carbohydrates produced by the cell can provide insights into disease states, revealing perturbations and differences in cellular metabolic processes.
  Characterisation and design of heterogeneous catalysts for the petrochemical industry
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of novel catalysts for selective oxidation reactions is an area of decisive importance for both industry and academia.
  Development and synthesis of zeolites for the conversion of sugars to biofuels and environmental applications
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A promising strategy to replace non-renewable fuel sources, as raw material for energy applications, is to convert renewable biomass into transportation fuels and value-added chemicals.
  Assessing the impact of environmental chemicals on seabird development and health
  Prof K Spencer, Dr M Taggart, Dr L Humphreys
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project. Seabirds rate as some of the fastest declining species globally, but the reasons underlying widespread declines are not fully understood.
  Development of a spatially resolved spectroscopy probe for application in pharmaceutical drying processes
  Dr Y Chen, Dr C Price
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite being the most widely studied PAT technologies, to date, most applications of NIR and Raman spectroscopy are carried out using standard measurement geometry without specifying and differentiating spatial arrangement between the incident and collecting optics.
  Resilience of soil surface microbial communities and their ecosystem functions to extreme weather
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Prof G Bending, Dr R Mushinski
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Biological soil communities (BSC) at the soil surface perform vital ecosystem functions, including C and N fixation, and protection of the soil surface from erosion.
  Asymmetric Clip-Cycle Reactions of Cyclic Amines
  Dr P Clarke
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Cyclic amines are privileged pharmacophores present in many drug molecules and biologically active natural products, with the 5- and 6-membered rings by far and away the most prevalent.
  Catalytic synthesis of heterocycles from carbon dioxide
  Prof M North
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. My group have developed world-leading catalysts based on metal(salen) complexes for the synthesis of cyclic carbonates from CO2 and epoxides and have extended this work to the synthesis of oxazolidinones from CO2 and aziridines.
