  Exploring the synthesis and biological value of natural product-inspired compounds
  Dr D Foley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Key words. natural products; organic synthesis; medicinal chemistry; drug discovery. Motivated international and New Zealand-based candidates are invited to apply for a University of Canterbury Doctoral Scholarship to investigate the synthesis and biological value of natural product-inspired compound collections.
  Towards new antibacterial drugs to treat infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria: identification and characterization of novel natural product antibiotics
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared antimicrobial drug resistance one of the greatest problems currently facing human health, and the situation is especially grave in the case of infections caused by bacterial pathogens.
  Fungal Informatics
  Dr A Barber
Application Deadline: 25 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology – Hans Knöll Institute (Leibniz-HKI, www.leibniz-hki.de) investigates the pathobiology of human-pathogenic fungi and identifies targets for the development of novel natural product-based antibiotics.
  Development of novel halogenase enzymes for biopharmaceutical applications
  Dr B Menon, Dr C Corre
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Identification of new halogenated synthetic, natural and non-natural compounds; and further exploitation and synthesis of these compounds are of extreme importance in this modern era.
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity.
  Fungal RNA Biology
  Dr M Blango
Application Deadline: 25 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology – Hans Knöll Institute (Leibniz-HKI, www.leibniz-hki.de) investigates the pathobiology of human-pathogenic fungi and identifies targets for the development of novel natural product-based antibiotics.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial and antiviral natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Elucidating plant alkaloid biosynthesis
  Dr B R Lichman, Dr W Unsworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are capable of forming complex natural products from simple starting materials. Many of these natural products are bioactive, but access is limited as they are difficult to synthesise using organic chemistry and are present in small quantities in the natural source.
  Toward developing next-generation therapeutics - targeting the undruggable interactome
  Dr W Houssen, Prof M Jaspars, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyclic and modified cyclic peptides are very appealing scaffolds especially as therapeutics with several examples reach the clinic e.g.
  Synthesis of Lamellarin alkaloids using a photoredox initiated cyclisation cascade
  Dr M Kimber
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research group focuses on the synthesis of heterocycles, particularly using singlet oxygen and activation of enamides and allenamides.
  Developing novel drugs targeting gut microbiota-accelerated heart diseases
  Dr Y Chen, Prof T Bugg, Dr A Cameron
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is increasing evident that human is a “super-organism”. We co-exist with trillions of microorganisms in our body (collectively named as microbiota), and our health can largely depend on the interrelationship between ourselves and associated microbiome.
  Using synthetic biology to harness biopharmaceuticals from microorganisms
  Dr F Alberti, Dr C Corre
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the bioactive molecules used in agriculture and medicine are made by microorganisms. For instance, penicillin and cephalosporin antibiotics come from fungi and represent together 47% ($19.8 billion) of the global antibiotic market.
  Diffusion Ordered Spectroscopy NMR for the Rapid Identification of Medicinal Plants
  Dr JM Peron, Dr A Le Gresley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diffusion Ordered Spectroscopy (DOSY) is a nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technique that is used to analyse mixtures.[1–3] Put simply, NMR signals that overlap in 1D NMR spectra are separated in 2D DOSY spectra according to molecular size and those that belong to the same component align as they are governed by the same diffusion coefficient.
  Development of an antibacterial beeswax wrap using Welsh natural products (Please note the project is for an MPhil)
  Prof L Baillie
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately 1.3 billion tonnes of food per year are wasted, creating both financial losses and causing significant harm to the environment and its natural resources.
  Efficient simulation of the effect of mixing and flow condition on product crystal qualities in a continuous crystallizer using coupled CFD-PBE approach
  Dr A Majumder, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The majority of the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) used in the pharmaceutical industries are crystals of organic molecules.
