  The greening of peptide synthesis
  Prof M North
Applications accepted all year round
Peptide synthesis (both solution and solid state) is of fundamental importance to the pharmaceuticals sector. They are therefore expected to play a major role in the future of drug discovery.
  Discovery of peptide ligands of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) chaperone ERp44 that counter metabolic syndrome
  Prof A Mitra
Applications accepted all year round
We are seeking a well-qualified and highly motivated candidate for the position of a doctoral student to carry out a peptide-based drug-design project involving a multi-disciplinary approach.
  Nasal Delivery of Peptide Nanofibers for Acute Ischaemic Stroke
  Dr A Lalatsa, Prof A Butt, Dr A Bucchi
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences and will be supervised by Dr Aikaterini Lalatsa, Professor Arthur Butt and Dr Andrea Bucchi.
  Novel cyclic peptide constructs for targeted biomolecular imaging
  Prof M Zanda, Dr S Butler
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Over 40 cyclic peptides are used in the clinic for a wide range of applications, such as somatostatin and ciclosporin. Cyclic peptides have enormous potential for disrupting protein-protein interactions and are therefore being pursued as drug candidates for treating a number of unmet medical needs.
  A dynamic biomaterial-ligand tethering strategy for tissue engineering
  Dr C Spicer, Prof D K Smith
Applications accepted all year round
Biomaterials that can trigger the repair of damaged tissues have the potential to revolutionise the way we treat disease. Materials that can present cells and tissues with powerful biochemical signals, through attached peptides, proteins, and carbohydrates, are particularly effective at controlling regeneration.
  Systems Chemistry: Non-Equilibrium Synthesis and the Origins of Life
  Dr M Powner
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for one three-year PhD Studentship. The Studentship is fully funded by the Volkswagen Foundation and available from September 2019, depending on applicant availability.
  Turning organocatalysts green
  Dr A Routledge, Prof M North
Applications accepted all year round
Organocatalysis (catalysis using organic molecules) fulfils two green chemistry guidelines1 by avoiding the use of rare metals, and by being catalytic.
  De novo design of a new generation of catalysts based on rhodium coiled coils
  Dr A Peacock
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project will generate a new class of miniature metalloenzymes based on rhodium coiled coils, which bring together the power of enzymatic catalysis, as provided by the coiled coil miniature protein-type scaffold, and small molecule rhodium catalysis.
  Design, synthesis and evaluation of MMP-activated anti-cancer prodrugs
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of endoproteases that are overexpressed in tumours and play crucial roles in many tumourigenic processes, not least tumour invasion and angiogenesis.
  Structure based design of novel warheads for use in peptide-drug conjugates
  Dr S Butterworth, Dr A Tirella, Dr D Wiseman
Applications accepted all year round
Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukaemia (CMML) is an orphan disease defined by myeloid dysplasia, myeloproliferation and a malignant expansion of classical monocytes.
